Skulls and bones

Hi all!!
This months inspiration challenge is SPOOKTACULAR!!

Michele here today with some challenge inspiration...this month I did a canvas inspired by bones, skeletons, spooky, creepy halloween!

I have a little tutorial on the background to share but first, here is my canvas.

I started building my background with an Um Wow Studio stencil and some heavy gesso.

While that was drying I used some of the Tim Holtz tissue and stamped the Skull several times in grey ink.

In black archival ink I stamped the Humerus Bone around the edge of the canvas.

On the canvas I sprayed Antique Linen Distress Spray and water.

After some dry time...I used matt medium to put down the tissue.

I did a little random stamping with the Smear/Smudge and Ink Drips with brown archival inks.

The skulls on the tissue look like a watermark!!

I just love background stamping!!

And a look at the crackle in my resin skull cast using Amazing Casting Products.  Thanks to Tina Walker for the use of her mold!!!
I also used a chip cobweb from Um Wow Studios, a fuzzy spider from my stash, black thread, thickers and cheese cloth srayed with Distress Spray.

I hope you are inspired!!!  You can link up your creation here.

Until next time, get inky!!
