Good morning my lovelies, and a big warm welcome to all my new followers. Its lovely to have you on board and as soon as I get a minute I'll be round to follow you and check out your lovely artwork. I'm startiing the day with a big BOO! We're getting ready for Halloween at Chocolate Baroque and my project today features the gorgeous new stamps Nevermore. I just love making projects for Halloween, I think its the gorgeous spooky colours.
I've altered a Kaisercraft frame (I'm not sure if Glenda has any of these in stock) and painted it with black acrylic paint, adding gilding wax once it was dry. I creaed the backgrounds using distress inks (Peeled Paint, rusty Hinge and seedless preserves) and the spritz and flick technique. I added a moon in the larger panels. Next I stamped all the images using Memento Tuxedi Black Ink. I inked in a cliff below the castle and drew in some telephone wires to sit the birds on. I added a little colour with Graph'It Markers and some white highights with a white gel pen. To finish off I attached a glass cabochon to the date with some glossy accents and added a little bottle of poison (actually a tiny perfume sample bottle thats been gathering dust for years filled with a drop of distress reinker and a little water)
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics:Alter something
Our Creative Corner: Forgotten things
The Crafting Cafe: altered art
thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
