I have created a little something using the newly released GOTHIC 31 plate.
I have added my image to an
ornate frame, stamping onto acetate so that the edges of the images
appear to blend into the background. I love the foliage stamp on this
plate, its a perfect filler stamp as I call them and looks great stamped
in the background, quite eerie and adds to the atmosphere of the piece.
I have stamped 31 onto acetate along with Happy Halloween to the top of
the arch. To add a little more dimension and interest I have also
added a mini skull to the bottom, adding acrylic paint with my finger.
love the rivets at the side of my arch and I love the whole chipped
paint effect, reminds me of rusty chipped iron gates that appear around a
grave yard perhaps. Can you tell I am enjoying the whole Halloween
inside has been stamped with the foliage once again, adding the creepy
spider to the top along with the mini skulls, again stamped onto
acetate. I have included a key and lock, stamping Halloween onto my key
for further interest. Oct 31 and All Hallows' Eve have also been added. The
border at the bottom of the arch is also from the GOTHIC plate, stamped
onto white card, coloured a little with Distress Inks to blend into my
little more stamping has beed added to the back of my arch along with a
mini coffin decorated with the mini skull and the Happy Halloween
sentiment. I love the rat, which I have stamped onto acetate and added
to the bottom of the coffin. I have added a mini spider, cut from white
card using a Memory Box die and coloured with Distress Inks.
