It's time for the newest installment in my
Smeared Ink board book.
For this page I have used one of the newer images called,
She's pretty amazing. I saw her as a Wizard of Oz witch,
so I kept her skin tone very green. And then it only seemed
logical to give her red hair and dress her in purple and black.
Standard witch color palette.
I received some glow in the dark embossing powder for my bday.
Thanks, Dani. How the hell did I not own this stuff before now?!
It is AWESOME!!!
I used a fabulous red rubber skull pile image for
the background which is nearly invisible in the daylight.
But once those lights go out, it's full on skullsville, man.
I also learned the hard and messy way that once you gesso your
substrate, heat emboss an image, and add metallic Gelatos, you can't rub
the surface with a baby wipe or you'll remove all of the Gelato. Not the case
if your substrate is not gessoed or sealed. The pages of this book are kind of glossy
to begin with, so either way I was going to lose my Gelatos on this technique.
I added some Crackle Accents to a witch tag, and then went over it with
Hickory Smoke distress ink to show off some of those cracks.
I am really loving the direction this book is going.
It's going to be awesome once it's all done.
