Lyn's October Challenge

First let me begin by saying that I usually put things off until the last minute. Well, this challenge was no different. The cut off time is midnight of the challenge month. You guessed it. There I was on Halloween trying to put my card together. So what happened to the other 30 days?'s all a blur. Remember the teaser I posted yesterday? Here it is again in case you missed it.

Well once I got this idea in my head, I could not stop.
I was really shocked that I was able to bang this out in about an hour, hour and a half. This was my mock up piece so that I could work out the glitches for the final scene. Yes, you guessed it, Ms. Procrastinator waited too late to start working on it so for now this is the final. The other one is in progress. If I can settle down, I will finish it.

I love this silhoutte stamp that I got at JoAnn's. Ideal for so many uses. There were several techniques used in creating this scene that I could not write out all of them if I had the desire, which right now I don't. My eyelids are closing down on me.

Suffice it to say that I used my brayer and several shades of Adirondack Dye ink pads along with my Sakura pens, eclipse tape and several stamps. The sentiment is Hero Arts. I will most likely show on a Vee-dio how I did the title.

While this was drying my son stuck his lovely fingers into the matte and glossy accents. He wanted to know if they were dry. They were not.

I thought I would play around by covering the boy (gloss) and girl (matte) in it to see if they looked any different. They really did not.

Always thinking and inking in the Name of Love.
Until then.
