Stampotique FB ATC Swap - Halloween

For those of you that follow my blog you will know that I am part of a Stampotique Facebook group where we swap ATC's every month using the months theme. This page is run fabulously by the lovely Nikki Woodward, thanks Nikki.
Our theme this month was HALLOWEEN and all my ATC's have been received now so I thought I would share them with you.
As you can see I made 2 of each of my designs and an extra one, the extra one was because one of my recipricants was Nikki herself so as a thankyou for all she does keeping this Facebook page going I made her an extra one.
Background is black texture paste through Tims shattered stencil and coloured with Silks paints and guilding wax. The blood is glossy accents coloured with red acrylic paint.
The heads are what the Character Linda carries around as a handbag.
I have bent wire around a paintbrush to make them like bobbleheads.
Background done in the same way as above just coloured with Dylusions sprays.
Stampotique stamps are Mr Stripes and Spider Girl.
Mr Stripes has been stamped on tissue paper and coloured from behind with white paint.
And finally Pumkins from Stampotique Halloween cube stamped onto a brusho and distress ink background, colour removed from pumpkins with bleach and then coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend and enjoy your extra hour in bed due to the clocks going back an hour.
Thanks for stopping by

  1. Stunning ATC's Amanda, great ideas and wonderful crackles!

    How do you find Spectrum Noir Pencils please, i have only just got a set and am not sure about them. Finding them leaving a lot of residue little particles and not giving me the depth of colour i would like. I think it is me after seeing how beautifully coloured your pumpkins are, off to do some more colouring... :-) xxx
