I have two posts today. If you are looking for my Serendipity blog challenge post please scroll down. THANK YOU!!
Can you believe it's time to Party already? Where is the month going? Halloween will be here before you know it so I am glad for the theme this month... a color challenge to use Purple, Orange and Black. Doesn't have to be Halloween - whatever you fancy - but me - I love having little things here and there to announce the season!
I will keep this short to speed up your hopping... so many beautiful things to see .. only so much time to see them all .. and all that! I made a Halloween tag using a distress ink color blending technique I saw on WM DT member Anya Schrier's blog. She made a utube video and you can see it here. I blended three colors of ink for my background, and then stamped the oval frame in Versafine Onyx Black. I heat set the ink and then masked off the oval. I stamped Wanda inside the oval with the same ink. I went over her with a Sharpie to make her even darker and give a washed look.
OK You know me - when I make a tag... I just have to have a few more bitty tags hanging off the side. This time I used the opera tag stamps - added a gem to one and some bats to the other to keep it SPPPOOOOOOKKKKKYYYYY!
