For your consideration today I have this portrait. This poor lady is always in a state of mourning. Don't feel sorry for her, she knows exactly what she is doing this spooky season.

The lady and strawberry are free clip art images from The Old Design Shop. The lady image is dated 1889. The skull is a vintage anatomy free image from The Graphics Fairy.
I layered them and then printed them out on heavy paper. I used Distress Inks to watercolor them lightly.
The floral background I made using the bottom part of a bunch of celery, makes fun rose shapes! I dipped it in acrylic paint and stamped onto tissue paper.
The frame is painted with Distress Paint and layered with tissue stamped bats. The Love Potion stamp is by Graphic 45. The tag is inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and sprayed with water to make it blotchy.
If you have any questions, just ask:) I don't mind.
Thank you for spending some time here today! Now Hop on!
