Halloween Tag


I was playing with the CC102 brayering technique with the stains this afternoon.  Sorry for the bad photo but it's rained non stop!!  I used various shades of purple and orange and eventually added a small amount of black soot.  I stamped the PA skull in black archival, masked it off and stamped the background words down the right hand side.  The web and the bat are from TH stamp plates and again stamped in black archival.  Crystal gems were added for the eyes on both skulls, a couple of pumpkin charms and finally some fibres.
