Hello everyone, Aida here ! I received a wonderful set of newly released Halloween products from Sizzix Lifestyle and marvelled at how gorgeous they were. I am from Singapore where Halloween is not a widely celebrated event, it’s more of a party occasion, and it was good to have a dramatic project that pushed me to create.
The project is mounted on a 7 x 9″ canvas painted Black, with shadings of Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide, then splattered with Bronze paint.
The word Wicked was die cut in Bronze Foil and lightly sanded down, then inked with Distress Oxide Black Soot.
The Witch and Broom is an amazing design, I LOVE how the edges of the die is tattered to add atmosphere. This was die cut in an orange brown cardstock and darkened with Distress Ink.
Texture Fades and Embossing Folders are my favourite Sizzix product to use !
The steps to this effect are:
1) With an Inking Tool, add colour using Distress Oxides in Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves, Vintage Photo and Black Soot.
2) Once satisfied with how the colours were, lightly rub gold acrylic paint into the grooves of the piece.
3) Next gently tap Clear Embossing ink on the central Skull, pour Embossing Powder in a matte, dark colour, and heat emboss.
4) Adjust the colours with more Distress Oxides if you need to.

I hope this post will set you on the creative road for other Halloween pieces. Thank you for visiting, happy spooky crafting !
