* Vera Lane Studio: Creepy Cute Halloween



Hello!

It's Monday already and time for my DT post for Vera Lane Studio.

Janet popped a new digital collage set into the shop yesterday and it contains all the favourite creepy cute Halloween characters in two pdf files. 
I made this card:


I simply fussy cut the images, which come in different sizes and colour-ways, and ran a black marker along the cut edges.  I added some white Posca pen highlights and Glossy Accents to the eyes.
The background is Distress Oxides applied to acetate, one colour at a time, and spritzed with water.  This allowed me to control where I  placed the colour on the card. I let each layer of Distress Oxide dry before adding the next and built up the colour until I was happy. I die cut a circle of card and placed it in the sky and blended Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink around the circle to create a moon effect. I added some spots of Stickles to the moon to make it shine.
Some characters are glued directly into the background whilst others are popped on foam to give some dimension.


I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!

  

Thanks for stopping by today.
