Wickedly Sparkly and Spooky!

I love to paint wooden pieces and put them together. This is just a piece of 2x4 scrap.

This piece was really fun.....the bluish paint, try as I might, would not photograph true to color. The knobs are purple!

Everything else is true to color....sometimes it just works out that way.

Got my 3 new Tim Holtz Autumn colors of Distress Ink and had to wait until I got home from Minnesota to play with them.

The Witch is cut from the new Kraft Spooky Words from Canvas Corp. LOVE the whole Kraft collection from them.

I used the Bewitching Hour dies for the Bats and Witch. I cut more with Metal Foil Tape for bats on the sides.

The Witch has the new Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves Fall Distress Inks  (available here) added to the Kraft colored paper. Ended up really cool I think. The Broom end is colored with Mustard Seed and Gathered Twigs.

The bats and BOO are painted with Perfect Pearls and the front has Distress Stickles Rusty Hinge and Crushed Olive to make it sparkle.

It's hard to see the Pewter Perfect Pearls painted on the bat wings. I stenciled dots with Jennie Bowlin Malted Milk paint dabber and a Julie Balzer stencil Punchinella.

The squiggles on the top pieces are Lettuce Dimensional Pearls.  I'm really fond of all the Ranger products named Lettuce....don't know why.

 This shows the Distress Stickles up close and the Sunflower Sparkle on the Maya Road chipboard letters "boo."

The Seasonal Salvage Stickers are layered onto black chipboard.

I used a white Poster Pen from Sharpie....that they no longer make...boo!

The paints were a combination of many Golden paints.

Can't wait for the Indian Summer weather that's coming soon!

Be Well and Be Good to Each Other!
