Skull Stencil – Halloween Crafting

Hi there! Happy Friday! Lisa Taggart is here with some awesome Halloween inspiration today featuring our Skull stencil and ‘Leave Your Fears Behind’ stamps, a perfect combination…


I’m here with a Halloween theme using some of my favourites from Visible Image.

I’ve used alcohol inks on to heavy yupo paper from Ranger. I’ve stamped using Versa fine ink in onyx black. My ink pad isn’t as juicy as it used to be so it works a little better. I’ve also continued to use an alcohol blending marker and co ordinating colours of my spectrum noir alcohol markers. These are good for highlighting areas and adding extra colour.

The awesome stencil is:

The stamp set is:

leave your fears behind - crow - tree - stamp


I began by laying down the paler colours. I placed the stencil on top and sponged darker inks through. I also sprayed alcohol in places. It gives a great effect.

I went over the edges with black and highlighted parts in white.

I used the black and white again on the tree along with some a light brown marker. I tried to create reflections at the bottom to a water area. I also used part of the stamp to create extra wooded areas.

I love purples and yellow together.

Till next time
