Halloween: Making Spirits Bright!

Greetings! It's Tuesday, so you've got Kathi to share a project with you! This week my teammates and I are showcasing Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints by PaperArtsy. Not surprisingly, I've created another Halloween card, this time with several stamps from the Eclectica ENB02 Rubber Cling Mounted Stamp Set by Nicci Battilana, the cocktail stamp from the Eclectica ENB06 Rubber Cling Mounted Set Set by Nicci Battilana, the tree branch from the Jofy 15 Rubber Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp Set by Jo Firth-Young, the sun from the Zini Mini 55 Rubber Cling Mounted  Stamp Set by Elena Zinski , and thirty-two (32) colors of Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints, which I've been collecting for a very long time.

Here it is!

When I started to think about this project, I took a look at the Eclectica ENB02 Rubber Cling Mounted Stamp Set by Nicci Battilana set as it's perfect for Halloween. I thought that it would be fun to make the ghosts really bright colors, then the sentiment jumped into my head, and I decided to add the cocktail from the Eclectica ENB06 Rubber Cling Mounted Set Set by Nicci Battilana set because cocktails contain spirits and add to the festive spirit!

My first steps were to create five pieces of brightly painted mixed media paper by adding drops of Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paint onto pieces of Cut 'N' Dry Foam, smooshing the foam onto a craft mat, then randomly smooshing and sponging the paint onto Mixed Media Cardstock.
Purple piece: drops of  EggplantLavender, and Moonlight Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paint.

Then I realized that I need painted paper pieces for the tree branch and tombstone.
Brown piece: drops of  Brown ShedMahagonyToffee, and French Roast Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Grey piece: drops of SageStoneSnowflakeMoonlight, and Vintage Lace Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paint.

I knew that I wanted to have a blue sky, so Summer Sky, Sky, Periwinkle, and Cloudy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paints were brayered horizontally across a piece of Mixed Media cardstock to create the background. I like a touch of pink in my blue skies, so Vintage Lace and Rose were added to the mix. The painted background piece was heat set and trimmed to 5.25" x 8.25".

Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink  by Tsukineko was used to stamp the ghosts, tombstone, branch, and sun onto the painted pieces. All the stamped images were fussy-cut and edged with a black marker. Details were added with India ink markers or watercolor markers.

The cocktail from the Eclectica ENB06 Rubber Cling Mounted Set Set and the lamp post from the Eclectica ENB02 Rubber Cling Mounted Stamp Set were stamped onto white cardstock with Copic friendly ink. Those images were colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edged with black markers.

The green painted piece was cut with a grass die-cut three times, layered, and adhered to the base of the background panel.

All the other elements, plus die-cut black spiders, were adhered as shown. A computer generated sentiment was trimmed into strips then adhered to the background. The panel was edged with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink, which was heat set. The image panel was then adhered to a white 5.5" x 8.5" card.
