Crazy Dogs stamp set Distress Inks Halloween Inspiration Mixed Media Mixed Media on Monday

Happy Halloween everyone!
I couldn’t resist making a little project for today that I can display every October with the Crazy Dogs stamp set. I’ve told you before that I love this set, right?

Well the images in the Crazy Things stamp set make it very easy to create seasonal projects all year long. I started by watercolouring two of the dogs and some Halloween images, then cut some text paper to for the background. I’m working on a canvas board for today’s project.

I picked out some Distress Inks to create the background, a simple night sky.

Next came the sky. I started with Broken China and I will use it with each layer I add to help blend out the other colours.

Then I added some Faded Jeans and more Broken China.img_7071

The last two colours I used for the sky was Seedless Preserves and Black Shoot. After adding those I went back in with Broken China to help blend it out.

Next I took some water and sprayed the background a little to create some texture. I let the water sit for about 45 seconds then blotted up the water with paper towel. fullsizeoutput_6019
Next I used an old star stencil and some embossing paste at the top of the night sky. I let it dry throughly before glueing down the the dogs.fullsizeoutput_601c
