So, here is my Spooky midnight scene.
I began by choosing some Paperartsy fresco colours and painting onto my book page.
First, I cut out a white circle for the moon and glued it down.
Next, I chose some of Darcy's Steampunk style stamps of leaves and houses and stamped them with Black Archival and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
With a white Uniball pen, I highlighted some of the leaves and parts of the building. Also, I shaded parts of the building with grey watercolour to give extra depth.
Finally, I hand drew and coloured in my vampire bats......make me shiver....not a fan of bats!
A quick scribble of white to frame it and it was finished.
I hope that this has inspired you to do something similar, maybe starting with a dramatic background.
Thanks for looking and perhaps you will join in with our challenge at Country View Crafts.

This is brilliant Hazel and so clever that you used no Halloween stamps. Great page xxReplyDelete
Looking at your page, Hazel, I couldn't find out your are not a spooky fan :-) You achieved a really spooky Halloween page with your dramatic colours and background! HugsReplyDelete
No great fan of Halloween either... and my background is spookily (see what I did there!) similar although I used completely different supplies! Using Darcy's house is a stroke of genius, it works perfectly.ReplyDelete
I love how you have created a spooky scene without using a purposeful stamp, you clever thing. It really is effective! HugscDebs xxReplyDelete
Love your card, Hazel! Great stamps and the background is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Brilliant Hazel - you would never be able to tell you don't like spooky from the result - its awesome! Hugs rachel xReplyDelete
Great Halloween art by using non Halloween supplies, in fact when I first saw it I wondered if this is what is at the end of Christine's eerie drive, it fits perfectly lol. Great make as always Hazel. XxxReplyDelete

I wonder where I was when I saw you'd posted this! Obviously not near my laptop as I haven't commented so I must have seen it on my phone. Glad I scrolled back for another look tonight as it well deserves a comment. Fabulous colours and using Darcy's stamps to create your spooky piece is genius. Love the touches of white too!ReplyDelete
