Tando-Creative - Autumn

This week's theme at ~{Tando-Creative}~ is Autumn/Fall. I was a bit stumped for this one and ended up making an early Halloween tag.


The tag base is acrylic paint and if you look very closely you can just about make out the ~{Harlequin Mask}~ has been turned sideways to almost make bricks. It got lost under the layers by the time I'd finished faffing. I used ~{Picture Door}~ by Stampotique - it was meant to make the front of a house - and coloured it with Copics and added oil pastels for shading and shabbiness.

I used the ~{Mixed Halloween Minis}~ for all the chipboard. They are perfect for tags and cards and so dinky. The bat and spider web were sprayed with graphite ink and then had Walnut Stain DI sponged onto them. The web had glossy accents added. I painted the pumpkins, inked the edges and added white card behind so I could add details.

I then set to work with the white and black pen doodling to finish it off.

If you join in with the challenge you could win a prize of some gorgeous Tando goodies.
