A Haunting we will Go - Artistic Outpost August DT Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team August Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost Plates/Themes, this months DT Blog Hop theme is Halloween.

I created a Mixed Media card using stamps from the Artistic Outpost Vintage Halloween and Gothic 31 plates along with paper from My Minds Eye.


I randomly adhered the MME pattern paper with Gel Medium to a piece of Mixed Media paper.  Then stamped bits of images in Ranger Black Archival Ink.  The sweet witch and pumpkins are from the Vintage Halloween plate.  The images are stamped on a scrap of pattern paper, then colored with STAEDTLER Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, and adhered to the background with Gel Medium.  To tone down the background I added some white-washed Gesso, then used the Cracked Glass Technique over the entire panel.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Vintage Halloween, Gothic 31
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Wild Honey Distress Ink, Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Pumpkin, Black
Other - Ink Blending Tool, Gesso, Gel Medium MME Pattern Paper, Heat Gun, Clear Embossing Powder
