Happy Halloween

 I like the splotchy effect on the sponging. It was not intentional, but I think it works. I actually stamped my images and then decided to sponge the background. What do you think? 

   Halloween Scares

   Chocolate Chip A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

   Archival Basic Black
   Cherry Cobbler
   Only Orange
   Tangelo Twist



First, I stamped the house on the bottom-right corner of my panel.

I then stamped the trees to the left of it. I stamped them several times and even twice before re-inking the stamp.

I then stamped a pumpkin and added some bats.

At that point, I decided to sponge the background with Only Orange and Tangelo Twist. I think the splotchiness adds an eeriness to the night. What do you think?

  1. Nice Halloween scene! Bats fascinate me, and I'm a little afraid of them - just because of stories I hear about them, I'm sure.

    1. I have never been anywhere close to a bat. When I lived in Austin, TX there was a bridge that was infested with them. I avoided the area like the plague. Thanks for your complementary words and for taking the time to share them. Much appreciated.
