Halloween Night

Gingersnap Creations      GC122: Spicy Supply Challenge-Alcohol Inks

The more I practice with my alcohol inks the more I like them. I have found there is definitely a learning curve with these particular inks, for me anyway. I'm such a want to pick something up and get perfect results first time out of the box, that I find with several of my supplies I have had to slow down, practice, and experiment. Well, that's the fun in art isn't it. 
I used Slate, Pearl, a tiny bit of Pitch Black and I do mean tiny bit and the Blending Solution and I think it gave me this wonderful stormy night sky effect.
I tried to come up with a Poe story to fit this background, but I decided to use this stamp to give us a Poeesque creepy Halloween night, or in the genre in which he is placed with his writing Macabre Gothic.

Supplies: 4 1/4" X 4 1/4" square card blank, Papers: Stampin Up-Peach Parfait, Basic Black, Glossy card stock, Stamp: Stampin Up-Haunted Forest, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Ranger Alcohol Inks-Slate, Pearl, Pitch Black, Blending Solution, Sharpie Paint Pen-silver, Copic Marker-YR07,  Stampin Up-Raven Lace, glue dot.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥
