DT Choice at Smudgy Antics! Thanks so much!
Today I wanted to share a tag I made for an art tag Facebook challenge hosted by Rick st Dennis MFA. The challenge is short and sweet, make a tag and include this sentiment, "Summer is Fine, but I am ready for Halloween". This is sooooo true, I love Halloween!
I used the digital stamp Lizzywhigs, which you can see HERE at his Zibbet shop. This was lots of fun, have been wanting to use this image from my stash for awhile.
This is also the first play I have had with my new DecoArt supplies, I received through the wonderful Blogger Outreach Program. I included some extra photos I did along the way to show some of the steps.
I used DecoArt Modeling paste on the Dreamweavers Jack-o-lanterns. It was very smooth and easy to apply with a palette knife.
I used some Zing Orange embossing powder and heat melted it once the paste was dry.
I sprayed the Carbon Black, Primary Cyan, Purple and misted a bit with water to make it run. I applied some Shimmer Mister White onto before it was dry to get the nice clouding you see on the middle right.
The colors stayed pretty much as I saw them as sprayed, they really dried fairly fast on the manila tag. The best thing, once dry they are permanent! I added more Shimmer Mist White once it was dry for more 'stars'.
I printed the sentiment out using Photoshop Elements. I used Distress Ink to color it a Halloween orange! Then cut it all up.
I used the Tim Holtz mini movers Halloween dies for the Bats, they are layered with pop up dots.
I love Lizzywhigs, she is colored using Sharpie Markers and Bic Mark It markers.
She is ready for Halloween, are you?
