I will be sharing today's Halloween make on Leigh's page...Day 1

So Halloween is almost here...
the local pub has really gone to town!!

Looking back to yesterday's page....

I decided the Copic Magenta really didn't show up enough - I needed pinker!!

So I stamped this part of the insect on the pink card, punched out 1inch circles and added these:

The photos aren't brilliant but I hope you can see the new look...

And I am still on skulls today...

When we went to the Tate Modern the other day I was quite impressed with the work of Paul Neagu (1938 - 2004).
He liked to use open ended boxes or spaces. This is a ceramic skull:

I thought these looked like a coffins:

Today's make is another page from my Halloween scrap book and also my DT make for Oddball Art.

For this inspirational make

I have used the image Creepy Cute Sugar Skull
 and a page from Dots and Doodles both coloured with Copic markers.

This uses Oddball images:

Spooktacular is a Tonic die, the sugar skull die is from Dovecraft.

The tag uses the technique Distress Oxide: Smudge Stamping
  1. Stamp image with Distress Oxide.
  2. Immediately smudge image with clean ink blending tool to soften lines and create glow.
  3. Repeat above steps with various images and colours, smudging each image as you stamp.
  4. Splatter with water if desired, distress edges.

Happy Hopping!
