Day 22 of 31: Technicolor Halloween


Hello! It's day 22 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today, my project aligns with the Stampendous theme of the week. We are sharing various awesome projects using Nathalie Kalbach's fun and funky stamps. I decided to combine her stamps, with some Dreamweaver stencils, and Amplify from Imagine Crafts.

This was all really about playing for me. Playing with the stamps, the neon colors, the paint itself, and of course, my stencils. I started off with one spritzing my watercolor paper background, and then using one of the stamps from Nathalie's Wired set. Then I really started to play.

I used a couple of the images from Nathailie's Grunge set. I took out my Creative Palette and squirted some Radiant Purple and Radiant Green Amplify on to it. Then, I swirled the 2 together with my palette knife. Dipping the stamp in, I placed it in a few spots around my base. Then, I used my embossing gun to heat it up in order to create that fantastic puffed look that Amplify is known for. Next I added my stencils. First was the spider and next was the bats. I applied the Amplify in a similar fashion as I would with Embossing Paste. You need to be really careful though, since Amplify is much thinner than the paste.

After I finished stenciling and stamping, I wrote out my title and puffed it up. A little spritz of purple Memories Mist here and there, and that was it. It was fun! Make sure you check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, they're all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an spooktacular day!
