Simon Says: Spooky Halloween!

Happy Monday my friends! Yes, we have a new challenge for you this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - SPOOKY/HALLOWEEN.  'Tis the bewitching season, after all!

I headed to one of my art journals and started to play.

Spooky Mischief

I started by creating layers upon layers for my background. I brushed on the paint, spritzed it a bit with water, and lifted it with a paper towel I pressed into the page. I really love the spotty look you can achieve with both paint and ink. 

Next up some green with the harlequin stencil.

The Twisted stencil is perfect for a spooky page, and I used it with the red, then again with the yellow.

Final paint layer with the burlap stencil and Coral paint.

I stamped SPOOKY at the bottom, then, I sprinkled on several different Infusions and spritzed with water. Once that dried, I stamped bats, bats, bats on the page, then added a bit of Mica spray.

While that dried, I stamped my girl, bats and words onto watercolor paper and colored them with watercolor or ink. I added them to the page with some fun embellishments.

Halloween is right around the corner, so be ready for tricks and treats and spooky mischief!

I hope you will join us this week with our spooky challenge. One lucky participant is drawn at random to win a $50 voucher from our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp!
