Salem Witch and Trick or Treat

Salem Witch

It's Roxie here today to show you a couple of Just For Fun's Halloween silhouette images. 

The image panel was created using the sponging technique with distress inks.  I stamped the trees with Memento ink and the witch with StazOn ink because it's thicker and will cover the tree line image so no masking needed, I use a stamp positioner in case I need to stamp again.

For each bat I punched out two shapes and used foam tape to connect them then tacky glue to attach to the card.

For the faux brads I cut from black paper 1/8" circles using a die, cover them with Aleene's Paper Glaze and if you want them to shine cover with Copic marker.  They are attach with tacky glue.

 Trick or Treat

Another background created with sponging.  Once the sky colors were down I added the moon by punching a 1" circle from scrap paper to create a mask and placed it on the panel and used the direct to paper technique and rubbed the ink pad onto the panel.

Next I stamped the images using the two inks as described in the witch card. 

To get my ground area darker I masked off the sky and used the direct to paper technique.
