Day 21 31 Days of Halloween~Destination Unknown

Welcome to Day 21 of the 31 Days of Halloween! This is an annual Smeared Ink event and we are so thrilled to be playing along as Wicked Bloggers. The Wicked Blogger challenge is to post a new creation each day during October that contains a stamped image, digi or rubber! Check out all the rules and prize details at Smeared Ink.

There is a fabulous blog roll to follow and Hop to it! Find it on the side bar :)

Today is my turn, CT kim.

"Destination:Unknown" Postcard sized canvas, mixed media

For this postcard I had lots of fun trying some new things, well new-to-me :)
I made the background by swiping several Distress Inks on the mixed media paper. I let it dry them sprinkled and misted with water to blend them a bit. Once dry again, I misted with DecoArt Mister Shimmer White and some splatters of the same. This helped to tone it down in spots and make it blend more.

The balloon stamp is Hampton Art. I wanted a creepier version so I added my skull stamp given to me by the fabulous CT Granne. The skull is made by Finnstamper. This was the same stamp used on our CT postcard swap, I love it! Both images are heat embossed in black and colored with Distress Inks.

Love to hear what you think!

Remember to come back and link up your weirdly odd and creepy makes with us in our challenge!
