Haunted Design House - Rotten Romance.
Well today we are starting our new challenge over at Haunted Design House and with the run up to Valentines day we thought we would challenge you with a 'Rotten Romance'
As always we want to see your darker sides come out to play ;)
We have our very own Teri of Delicious Doodles sponsoring us this fortnight and she is offering up 3 images of choice to each of our gruesome twosome.
I have decided to keep it simple today and have done two more Mixed Media Boards from Tando-Creative I am addicted to these, they are like extra large ATC's
For my first board I used the Grotesque Cupid image, It was printed onto 300gsm card and coloured with Copics, the image was trimmed to shape and glued to the media board. I carefully painted over the top of the image only with Decoart's Faux Finish Mediaum.The faux finish medium acts as a resist when using water based inks like distress inks. I used old paper to colour the back ground and stamped a couple of Tim Holtz classic stamps in pumice stone and gathered twigs, I also used black soot to stamp a text stamp from The Artistic Stamper, I wiped the over stamping on the Cupid off with a damp corner of kitchen towel. I finished off by swiping the edge of the board with a darker distress ink and clear embossed the card twice.
For the second board I used the Fresh Blood image, sized it to fit the media board and coloured with my Copics, Ultra simple this time as I only added the 'Kiss Me' with the October Crow alphabet stamps from De Stempelwinkel. The whole thing was given a couple of coats of Decoart's Satin glaze.
As always it would be great to see you all getting your freak on ;) and joining us over at Haunted Design House.
