GET YOUR SPOOK ON :-)

HELLO CHALLENGE !!!

We are going to get spooky ,lol habe a closer look here, on all the other DT`s spooky creatione : 


I used a little panel , painted it first with green and white paint, 
left to dry, and then mixed brown and white, to as very light brown/beige tone, which was painted 
all over the surface .
Onto that I smeared a thin layer of glace, left it to dry and then with the thinned brown paint, 
painted all over the surface, --- left do dry to create crackles !!

Then I stenciled first the Harlequin using brown Archival Ink,     Coffee  --and then
the 12 o`clock from the Cog Clock stencil.-- the craw background and 
Flight of the Bats  all with Archival Ink Jet Black  


I found a dry rose branch,  and still with two thorn `s- adhered it together  with
some dried nature straws, to the right side panel, making it look as if one craw just landed in the nest.



I had some tiny pumpkins , very mini , from a flower shop, which I adhered
together with 2 scratches of black fabric , and a piece of tulle swiped around the panel to give texture .  You could use tiny pinecones , or other nature finds , as substitute for the pumpkins !!! Two rhinestones were attached to the tulle on top, and to the "flower" . 
Jet Black ink was dabbed onto all edges !! 

I hope you like my not too spooky panel :-)

And I hope you will play ,and have the great chance to win 


Hugs and love Dorthe

FOREVER AUTUMN


Yes Autumn is really here , and this new challenge 
over at That`s Crafty Challenge Blog , asks for your creations
about  FOREVER AUTUMN , isen`t it a lovely titel !!

http://thatscraftychallenges.blogspot.dk/2017/09/forever-autumn-challenge.html



My own contribution started onto a Rounded  corners panel , which I 
first sprayed with a very thinned Infusion in Terracotta ,left to dry and oversprayed
with Sleigh Blue, also thinned a lot.

After dried I dabbed with Distress Oxides  : Vintage Photo with a little 
Iced Spruce on top here and there . The beautiful Dinky Stencil Spider Web was used in the
upper left corner , using Iced Spruce ,and in right corner I added a thin layer of 
Distress Crackle paint ,Clear Rock Candy , and left to dry .



Embellishments were painted with the lovely new Multi Surface Paint ,
in Green - Red- Chestnut Brown and yellow, to try capture the
wonderful autumn tones.



The tall flower also had a coat of the Crackle paint and so did the butterfly and one of the toadstools .



After it had all dried I smeared Distress Ink Walnut stain onto the crackled places, and wiped off the extra ink .

I felt something was missing in the lover part of the panel and used
another great Dinky Stencil : Harlequin , also with the Iced Spruce.
Not too easy to see here , sorry !!


Then all the Embellishments were adhered ,onto scraps of lace
some dyed with the Infusions , -- the Butterfly and toadstools got copper thread 
details ,to highlight a bit , and tiny cones from the wood were added too.
If you want to see details, just click the pictures :-)
