I said I would be doing more Halloween decor and here it is. I took wooden letters (I was going to do SPOOKY but I didn't have enough paper etc left for 5 letters so I went with 3. Here's how I did it.
I took Making Memories paint (yes I know it's old but it's still a goodie in my book) in Black and Shopping
Bag. I didn't want something so harsh as black so I mixed the two and painted the letters.
Once dry I traced the letters out of Basic Grey's Eerie collection and because I traced them they are going to be slightly bigger than the actual letters.
I sprayed some Auburn Tattered Angels for a little color and sparkle. I then added some of Tim Holtz's crackle paint in rock candy and picket fence. Distressed it in Black Soot and Gathered Twigs, BG felt and glitter 3D stickers. I scored a 2" strip to make the embellishment that is behind the skull and used thick chipboard in strips to connect the letters together. I finished it off with some red flowers, black velvet ribbon and black/white twine.
I will be posting some more Halloween cards soon. :)
