I'm THRILLED to be back for another week of delicious Tiddly Inks challenges!!!
This week we've been given a great sketch to work with! I've been SO into Halloween this year! I've always enjoyed it but this year I've been particularly inspired.
I used the sketch to highlight three Tiddly Inks images. I can no longer say "these are three of my favorite" TI images because quite honestly, there isn't one image that I don't like!!! SERIOUSLY!!! I love all of them!!!
So, with the sketch I used the following three images:
- Twisted Tree
- Peek A Boo Bugg
- Spider Web (it was a freebie on PCP) not sure if it's headed into the store or not
I used a misc. purple for my main rectangle on the left hand side as a matte for my skeleton paper. (love this paper!!) I knew my Twisted Tree was going to go right there.
I wanted my Peek A Boo Bugg to be highlighted on the upper right hand side knowing that the sparkly web would be the icing on the proverbial cake down on the right hand side. I like balance but not TOO much balance. =)
I then set to coloring my images. Everything is colored with my Copics and Prismacolor markers. I also used my sparkly Sakura gel and Souffle pen to embellish our tiny witches hat. I took my glue pen and covered the web and then sprinkled Doodlebug Glitter in black all over it. I then set it aside to dry.
After everything was colored, I trimmed out the tree, trimmed the Boo Bugg a bit to fit the sketch and began layering and matting my images into place. I kept the branches of my tree popped up a bit so that they had a bit of a 3-D effect to them. My Boo Bug is matted on a medium pink/purple the reverse of which is the mat for the spider web.
I used glittery bat stickers as small embellishments on the tree and a solo one on the web. For the two pieces on the left hand side I used metal edged tags that I heavily distressed with ink and my fingers and then added rhinestone pumpkin stickers along with a yellow and purple brad in each respective tag.
I added orange, sparkly spider web ribbon that I tied into a fluffy bow. I then added a colored staple in each corner for embellishment as well as security - there are a lot of layers goin' on! LOL!
I truly hope you enjoy my creation, the Design Team's samples are over the moon inspiring as are Christy's always amazing images!!!
Please come play along!!!!
