Vintage Tag

Go Tag Thursdays  challenge theme this week is Your Favourite Theme, I don't really have a favourite theme so as last weeks theme was Vintage Man I thought I'd do Vintage Woman this week.

I used Wendy Vecchi  stamps for the stamping, I also added some tissue tape, lacy fabric that I'd coloured with distress ink and some fabric roses.

Thank you for dropping by, enjoy what's left of the weekend.

Down In The Dungeon

My latest piece for the Craft Barns Design Team is a Halloween journal page.

I used a piece of mixed media card and stencilled the Tim Holtz wall with modeling paste, then I gave it a coat of gesso.

I painted the wall with watered down acrylic paint and spritzed with water, drying the wall between each colour, I also used a little brimstone wings Color Bloom.

I fastened some chain to the wall with brads and put some jump rings on the ends. I used some quinacridone gold paint to make it look like the metal had rusted.

I stamped some Carabelle Studio images onto white card using black Archival ink , coloured them with pencil and cut them out, the glass dome was stamped onto acetate and cut out, the Flonz Craft skeletons were stamped onto card and cut out, the knife was hand drawn.

The Table was stamped with an Impression Obsession stamp and distress ink. I stamped the mad doctor with a Stampers Anonymous stamp, I cut him out so that he looked like he was holding the knife, I cut his head of and added the skull.  I added some gauze, die cut spiders, a Tando pumpkin, some red paint for blood and some graffiti on the walls

Below are some close ups.

I'd like to enter my postcard in the following challenges.

For the background I stencilled modelling paste through a Prima stencil and gave it a coat of gesso when it had dried. I coloured the background with acrylic inks and Color Bloom sprayed with water and let it run down. I stamped some skulls onto tissue paper and glued them to the background then I splattered some white paint. The large skull was stamped onto white card and cut out. The sentiment was stamped onto card that had been coloured with Color Bloom. I used pencils to colour the moth.
