get spooky

Hello my crafty friends. Today's offering is constructed with Visible Image stamps and the brick stencil from Claritystamp.

I started by stamping Edward first in black archival and masked him off. Then I stamped the background. First I stamped the castle in watering can archival ink. Then I laid down the outer part of stencil just leaving the opening visible. I then stamped trees in black archival. For the front I used the stem from flower incognito which i again stamped in black archival. Finally I added the bats.

I added moon mask and castle mask and coloured in sky with distress inks and brushes. I coloured in castle and Edward with spectrum noir pencils. i masked Edward again and added some shadow around him and grounded him.

I masked the opening and left Edward masked and swapped the stencil fro brick stencil. Using brushes and distress inks I coloured it in. i sharpened edges with a make-up sponge. Then I added texture with a texture stamp from Jake skates set.
Then I stamped and embossed 3 large bats which I fussy cut and added to pic after molding wings to give some dimension.
Finally I added some highlights with a white pen and glosy accents to his eyes and shoes.

As usual I hope you like my make, Theresa xx
