Haunted MIX{-Ability} Challenge

It's a haunting Friday in the Mix-Ability forum! Jeanne is hosting the challenge this week and she's asked us to create using a Halloween theme or Halloweenish colors. And here is how I took the challenge:

My favorite mixed medium is paint and for backgrounds, so I used some halloweenish colors and my Creative Palette to create the monoprint background. I stamped Tangled Border around the edges with acrylic paint that was pounced onto the stamp with a damp sponge.

I stamped Punkin Pals and colored with Copic Markers. Here are the colors if you're interested.

G82, G94, YG05, YR23, YR24, YR27, E08, Y17, V15, V17, V20, RV63, T4, T6, T8, W9 (with Copic Airbrush Adapter Set 3)

I created a sticky note mask by stamping off the image on a sticky note and then cutting it out and placing it over the colored Punkin Pals. Then I used my Copic airbrush tool with a copic marker to darken the paper around the image before trimming around the image. I used a piece of denim and colorless blending refill to create a texture on the Punkin Pals.
