GRS Weekly Recipe!


It is my turn this week to host the GRS Weekly Recipe.  I wanted to use my new Enchanted papers, a Chevron Stripes background stamp that had yet to see ink, some new-to-me Jolee rhinestone bats, and this fun Hallow's Eve stick chick.  I just love their long, skinny extremities, and using diagonal lines in a layout is a fun way to accentuate them.

I colored the image with Copics, then sponged in a stormy Halloween sky with soft yellow and yellow-orange inks using a scalloped circle as a mask.  There's just a tinge of gray-black along the edges to give it a tiny bit of spookiness.
The inside layout is a repeat of the sketch, using the party invite sentiment from Invite to Fright.
