I did a bit of a 'mop up' of paint from my project last Monday... I use a bit of acetate as a palette, and if I have loads of paint left over then I'll either scrape it onto some card, or do what I did with this, just squish the whole piece of cardstock on top of the painty palette! Gives a great starting point for another bit of art....
I've added in some extra stamping and splatting..
and some texture by way of coloured puff paint through a stencil....
The word is made from painted up Alphaparts..
And I've chosen a suitably spooky image...
Now, it might seem a little strange that a dedicated rubber stamper and messy art creator like me uses digital stamps, but I do! This wonderful image is by Dilly Beans and I love it! The best thing is the fact you can resize the images to whatever fits your project, not to mention the fact that they are waaaaaay cheaper than buying actual stamps. Great for images like Halloween type ones that you may not use lots and lots during the rest of the year. So, don't just automatically associate digi stamps with Copic or Promarker users, have a look and see what's out there!!!
Have a fab weekend!
Love Trish xxxx

  5. Love that spooky little image Trish, I do use digis sometimes too, they are good value, as you say. Love the background and it is so perfect for that image. I really must dust off that puffy paint that I have had around for years....... Great canvas! Crafty hugs, Anne x
