I got very inspired by some ongoing challenges to make this project:
1- The crafts hoarders anonymous challenge blog: Layer it
I used some grey prepainted 12x12 canvas and layered it with seedless preserve TH mini distressing ink. I then, added some dimension using Theresa Collins templates and a mixture of grey inked gesso and modeling paste. I used some spellbinder dies to cut the spooky frames using metallic terracotta cardstock. I distressed the frames using distressing inks and paints form Tim Holtz and metallic rubons inks.
I cut out the words "haunted Halloween" from a embossed goldrush cardstock (CTMH) using the Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folder Halloween Words.
I distressed the words with black and white distressing makers, distressing inks and metallic rubons ink to highlight the risen areas... I added a spooky charm using a TH Idea-Ology enamel tag distressed w/ metallic paint (TH). I added a Skull/crossbones adornments to finish the spooky look.
The click was cut using my new Cricut explorer and the happily ever after cart. I cut the shadow from slate cardstock (ctmh) and then I let the cricut draw the other layers using different markers. Later I colored the layers with distress markers and the special technique described in the 2nd. Challenge:
2- CC3 challenge 14: Colored Crackle: at CC3C 14: Colored crackle">At Linda's blog
I used this technique to distress some areas of the frames and for part of the clock.
The effect wasn't as neat as it was in my husband tray, but I am still please to have included as layer in my haunted canvas.
I printed on vellum the hitchhiker ghosts based from the one displayed in a Pinterest post inspired by Disney's haunted mansion and movie...
I used vellum to get the see-through effect from ghosts and added some rock candy distress glitter and distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink (both from TH):
