Ghosties and Goblins

I had so much fun making this project that I decided I like halloween after all!  I never used to like or really ‘do’ it despite being Canadian (as an adult that is).  I’ve also started ready Poe and am thinking about plastic rats, spiders, skulls and the like!  Apparently, old dogs can learn new tricks after all!

Beware of the spookiness!

This is one of TCP’s mini printer’s trays and a couple of their Halloween grab bags.  I used the awesome Graphic 45 Eerie Tales paper to line the different sections applying it with DecoArt decopage glue which I just love.  The cat, raven, hat, and bats were all painted black and highlighted with different cosmic shimmer guilding waxes.  The moon was done in orange and brown and again highlighted with wax.  The tombstone is ferro paint covered with grey and black.  The ghost and skull are in shades of white, ivory, and a bit of green for the ghost.  I painted the frame in orange, green and purple before using DecoArt’s weathered wood product to produce the crackle that appeared when covered with black.

Can you guess what this fortnight’s challenge is?
