Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge: Spooky & Scary

It’s Tuesday and time for a Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge.  This week is a little different over at the blog and instead of a card, we’d love for you to create a project.  It can be anything, except a card. Think out of the box and create something fun.  For example, you can make a treat bag, a costume, home decor, a canvas, a journal page, how about baking a cake or cookies?  Use the theme to really use your creativity and make us something fun.

For inspiration I’ve chosen to make a journal page for you.  I started by painting the page with gesso, then applied a combination of Dina Wakley Blackberry Violet and Magenta.  I then cut out the ghosts with a bigz Sizzix die and the bat from Paper Smooches.  The digital image is from Tiddly Inks and colored with copic markers.  I hand painted the tree with a few shades of browns and black then I spritzed the entire page with Tim Holtz Distress marker in Black Soot, WHICH WAS MY MISTAKE.  This is water based and when I went to collage the page, it smeared from heck to high water. You can see where there are black smears I couldn’t get it all off, but I don’t think it’s horrible.  I sure wish I remembered not to use collage medium over water markers. GRRR.  For future reference, I saw Tim use a sharpie to make black splats on a journal page when wet medium was going to be applied afterwards.   The only other issue I had was the moon.  I should have laid it down before I made the tree, but didn’t.  I also couldn’t find my masking fluid, so I painted over the tree and then filled the tree back in with brown, allowing for the moon to recess into the background.
