frighten me….

is this weeks theme over on the Tando creative blog…well, it had to be something Hallowe'en themed.  I have been building on this piece for several weeks, at the moment I don't seem to be able to settle to anything and will find an excuse to do anything other than what I should be…so, this piece has evolved in time… and here it is finished

The base is a large canvas board.  I started off by adhering to the base a piece from the Tando graveyard set and the bottom section of my coffin (from the skeletons set).  I then painted the board with a base coat then added various tones of purple/blue/black acrylic paints.  I used the cobweb 2 mask and added a couple of cobwebs to the base …. I then painted the coffin set grey and blended in black and white the lid was stamped with my favourite crackle stamp …. the bats, spiders, spider web and owl were all painted with black acrylic paint and then crackle glaze added, the skull was painted grey and then stamped with a crackle stamp by Cherry Pie…I added some black card to the back of the skull and added a couple of white dots for his eyes…. the girl is a stamped image from The Halloween set of stamps from Artistic Outpost and the halloween tag is from an old set by Tim Holtz….all the Tando chipboard pieces I have used are available from the Tando Retail store.  Do pop on over to the Tando blog this week as we have loads of "frighten me" projects to share.
