Hello and Happy Monday to you! We have a real mix of inspiration coming your way today.. Halloween… Christmas… and NEW stamps! First up is Lisa Taggart with some incredible Halloween art work featuring our skull stencil…


Hello my friends it’s Visible Image day and today we are getting spooky! I’ve had a lot of fun creating this Halloween scene.


skull stencil - halloween card -  leave your fears behind



Here are the visible image products used:


skull stencil



trees stamp - forest - stay grounded



crow stamp - branch - leave your fears behind



The Steps:

Firstly an ink spray background dried and cut down to size.




I created a moon using white gesso.





Using the stencil I carefully sponged the image using distress oxide ink I then enhanced the stencilled image using inktense coloured pencils, a charcoal pencil and some more distress oxide ink.





I masked the moon and created some splatters using watered down white gesso.

I then began the stamping. I also gessoed the right side of the moon again as I wanted the eye sockets and nose to be the main dark areas. The hill was made through a torn copy paper mask and black ink.







I used all of the tree shapes for background interest. I highlighted parts with my white pen. For the foreground I used parts of the tree stamps ( small branches) from both stamp sets and pale distress oxide ink. I roughly drew in the grave stones using soft pastel and a black pen.

Finally I stamped the sentiment and later highlighted it in white.








The close ups:
