welcome to the first of my monthly posts for Eileen Hull (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/). This month the design team are sharing with you projects under the theme of either Halloween, Christmas or Autumn! my project in real life today does not look like this anymore because really the only reason for me to make a Halloween project is to have an excuse to buy candy corn…. I’m just being honest here!
keeping it real folks!!
when deciding what kind of project I wanted to create I knew I just had to use the Ravens (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Cling-Rubber-Stamps-2017-RAVENS-CMS310-CMS310TH) stamp set somehow for my Halloween project. (this is one of the sets i a had won during the Facebook live with Tim Holtz!!!) i had an idea using alcohol ink and what better surface than on some YUPO (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Adirondack-WHITE-ALCOHOL-INK-YUPO-PAPER-TAC49715-TAC49715RI?currency=USD) paper.
so I started out by cutting out a canister from mat board. I then applied some YUPO paper to some adhesive paper, die cut a canister and then layered on top of my mat board. I then covered my canister with a few darker shades of alcohol ink along with a bit of silver
then this is where the fun part started for me. I placed my canister flat into my stamp platform and using a raven stamp and some black archival ink I stamped and stamped until I got the result I wanted
I loved the ghostly effect but I thought I might try adding some brown archival ink to see if I could add just a bit of colour
now I loved how it turned out and the ‘glow’ around the outside but in the end decided that I wanted it back to the ghostly look
then I ended up getting lost in the process. i had die cut three bats out of one side and created a window from the ticket mover and shaker out of the other side.
I then lined the whole thing with some clear packaging because I knew I wanted to fill it with candy
and so now here you have it.. my finished canister filled (or was filled) with some halloween treats!
thanks for stopping by and until next time,
