Welcome to Day 11 of the 31 Days of Halloween


Who let the Skeletons out of the closet???


Here's what I did.... I started off by painting a piece of with cardstock using Art Anthology's Limeaid Velvet Dimensional paint.  I applied the first layer and let it dry then I went back in and added a second layer using a bit more paint so I could leave visible brush strokes in the finished look.


I then used a paper punch to make a slimy looking border.  Looks so cool in person because all of those brush strokes makes it look icky - LOL!!


I took a piece of the textured cardstock from Lucy Crab Shack and highlighted the pattern using several colors of Gelatos which I smeared around with my finger.


I then printed out the skull from the collage sheet - Halloween 1950's  in multiple sizes, cut them out and affixed them to the card in layers - some glued directly to the card panel, others mounted using double stick foam tape for depth and dimension.


And finally I made this fun skeleton flower using Bazzill Paper Flowers and a fun skull bead!


Supplies Used:

Art Anthology - Limeaid Velvet Dimensional Paint
