Halloweenie Dreamer Girl by Shari Acuff

Halloweenie Dreamer Girl
Supply List:
Inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, Distress Oxide Black Soot and Fossilized Amber
Black A2 card
Printed Paper 4” x 5 ¼”
Green Cardstock
Chipboard Hat
Misc. Ribbon, brads
Paper Spider Webs
Misc. Pens and colored pencils
I know it’s still September but Halloween is just around the corner and it’s never too early to tap in to your darker side!
Drawing in a little point to the nose and a wart, "Dreamer girl" turned into a witch. I stamped her in black ink onto green cardstock. Colored her in using pencils and various pens then cut her out with detail scissors. Added layers of ribbons and a brad to a chipboard hat.
For the background, I used a piece of printed paper and masked off a circle for the moon. Then sponged Black Soot ink using the Skymaker Stencil going across the top and then down making four rows of black clouds. I pulled off the mask for the moon and sponged Fossilized Amber ink using the stencil. Once the circle is colored, pull off the stencil and sponge a little more in a larger circle to make the moon glow a bit more. I had little bat brads and added those by the moon, you could also stamp some bats if you don’t have brads.
I glued the background paper to the black card and added the spider webs to the bottom cutting them off flush with the edge of the card. (I layered black on top of silver off setting them a bit to add more dimension.)
Lastly I glued the hat on to the witch and placed her on the card trimming her shirt if needed so she is flush with the bottom of the card.
Happy Stamping!
