Hey Friends! It’s EK, and I am popping in with a little bit of fan art I created using several stamp sets from Ilse and Charlene. This collection has a whole host of great stamp sets featuring different girls, and I have been kicking the idea around for some time about combining them to create a little homage to my favorite Halloween Movie. I don’t know if I quite captured the look I was going for, but I sure had a lot of fun trying.
Step One: Trim a piece of watercolor to 6×4.5 inches. Stamp girl images from Floral Girls, Halloween Party, and Make a Wish stamp sets onto Watercolor paper, masking where needed. I picked three different gal images trying to capture a likeness of three famous movie witches.
Step Two: Peel up the masks to reveal the stamped images.
Step Three: Watercolor the images focusing in on the skin and hair. I used ECD’s Watercolor Palette.
Step Four: Finish watercoloring the image.
Step Five: Blend ink around the edges to create a haze. I used Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide.
Step Six: Trim a piece of black cardstock to 8.5×6 inches. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the watercolor paper to the black cardstock. Die cut a halloween sentiment from the Words 3 Happy Holidays die set. Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the sentiment to the cardstock.
While I did not quite capture the three witches from my favorite spooky movie, I am still going to matte this piece and frame it for the Halloween Season.
