My October 6th class at CP2
Anyway, I just generously swiped Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves, and that Marigold color (too lazy to get off my tookus and look up the actual name) across a white panel and then misted it heavily with water. Then I just sat it aside and let the colors slide around doing their own thing. After it dried, I was left with this very cool, very bright background, which was a perfect landing spot for this wonderful raven image. Very simple, but it makes an impact. I think I might do all my Halloween cards this way this year. The rest of the card is all about the embellishments. Remember those cheap glittery spiders that I completely raided my Westside Pier 1 for? Yep, that's one of them in the corner. I decided to break them out for this class seeing as I have about 50 of them...lol! I reckon I can share ;D The burlap is from Hobby Lobby and I picked up the black cheesecloth in the Halloween section of Target. Dang, they have some cool stuff this year!
If you're going to be in the Albuquerque area on October 6th and want to join me to create these cards, contact Nancy at China Phoenix 2 or drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add you to the roster. Have a great Sunday! Until next time, stay crafty!
