So here we go with a bewitched sample. My good friend Emily over at Stamping Bella gifted me with some fun new images. I immediately knew I needed this cute witchy poo stamp, isn't she cute? First, I stamped my image in black ink, heat set then cut out and embossed the image with a Spellbinder's Oval Die Template. That image was matted on a scallop cut Spellbinder's oval. I colored in Witchy Bella with my Copic markers, using a direct to paper coloring method. I colored just like you would in a coloring book then went back over areas with the same color markers to add shading.
Then I took my Copic Airbrush System and created a spooky Halloween sky. First I masked the colored witch with some Eclipse masking tape. Then I selected some spooky sky colored markers-a purple, a green and an orange color. Then I airbrushed each color on in back and forth sprays, switching markers for each of the three colors. When I pulled the mask off...which is SO fun...the spooky sky appeared. So how bout that? For more information on airbrushing with Copic markers and the Airbrush System, visit Ellen's blog. She did gave some *technical* tips on how to operate the airbrush system.
To finish off the card, I used some SU! tiny bat images in black, Doodlebug Halloween patterned paper and I tied some May Arts ribbon around the card. Notice that the tied ribbon portion looks like bat wings! I planned that part, so clever yes? I also colored the pumpkin's grin in with a gold Copic Spica glitter pen, they are fabulous!! And the grand finale are those three purple beads. My daughter Jordan called them *witchy warts* so that's my new name for them! Actually they are what Emily at Bella calls *baubles*. They are fun! So I hope you enjoyed the first of many Halloween projects. You realllllllly need to try the airbrushing, it's addicting and you'll want to airbrush everything in sight!
What's this you ask? This is a little goody sack I sent to my good friend Pine. She loves Halloween too and she makes the BEST Halloween goodies. I can't wait to see her creations this year!
Inside her goody sack was all kinds of Halloween stamped images and embellishments. I hope she has fun using this stuff and hopefully she'll post some of her goodies on her blog. Do you have some good *stuff* sitting around?
