October 15~ 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Blogger Challenge Day 15

Happy Wicked Wednesday!

Day 15 of 31 for the awesome 31 Days of Halloween Challenge by Smeared and Smudged. See the cool shop HERE. If you are wanting to see all the wickedly cool art by all the super talented artists, you can follow the blog hop Blog Roll there under the Neon Skele on the right sidebar.

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.

Click image to see it larger:)

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!
