31 days of Halloween day 7

It's that time again for Airless Chambers Crew to join in the creepiest blog hop of the year, the 31 Days of Halloween, organized by Smeared Ink. The AC crew will be using Rick's awesome Halloween digis and / or rubber collection. You can find the digis at his Etsy or Zibbet shop. Rubber is available only at I Brake For Stamps

Blogroll is in the side bar. Enjoy the hop, if you dare.


Hi there! It's Bonnie here today with Day 7 of the 31 Days of Halloween. For my mixed media pieceI chose to feature Bratty Lil Witch who can be found in Rick's Zibbet shop.


Bratty and her wee friend were coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. They were fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted with black cardstock which provides a wonderful contrast with the background. They were then popped up on foam tape to create a shadow and add dimension.


The background, a 6 x 8 inch rectangle of mixed media paper, was inked with Straw, Dried Marigold, and Worn Lipstick Distress inks to create a blended background. One of the Mish Mesh stamps from Stampendous was used with Orange Blossom Archival ink to stamp texture on the background. Black Archival ink was sponged through Dina Wakley's Plastic Canvas stencil and white embossing paste was scraped through TCW's Netting stencil. Dylusions Black Marble paint was added to the background with bottle lids to make rings and a plastic gift card to make the lines.


Before Bratty was placed on the background, torn patterned paper with text and crossed bones was added in three places. The first place gave her a place to stand, grounding her so she wasn't floating. The computer generated sentiment was printed on white cardstock and Sharpie orange and purple pens were used to colour in the open parts. The words were then matted in black and popped up on foam tape. Black and black and white washi tape semi-circles were punched and added to the top and bottom of the background. Black Big Brush pen was used to edge the background and a black cardstock mat was adhered to the back of the page.

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm always happy to visit with you and Bratty...well, Bratty is Bratty. Be sure and stop by the Airless Chambers blog each day of October to see the other awesome projects by the EDT, all using images from Rick's creative brain! Follow the hop at Smeared Ink, too, and you'll be eligible for cool prizes.

Poor kitty. he's probably learned his lesson to stay away from the witch. I think she's trying to stretch his tail.
thanks for sharing a cute card.

Loving your brights and fabulous texture. Your unmistakable style is amazing, Bonnie. Bratty is adorable but needs to learn the proper way to hold a kitty. LOL XXD
