Freaky Chick

Or Chic Freaks if you want - which is the challenge over at Haunted Design House this week. Barb has arranged for an awesome sponser this week - Stampotique! This is one collection of stamps that I have been meaning to add to my collection but never got round to ordering. Always something else that the pennies need to be channeled towards.
So which image to use was my first challenge. I went for Rusalka from Smeared Ink.

I used the sketch from My Time Made Easy as the basis for the card.
The image was coloured using a mixture of promarkers (girl) and distress inks (tree) Then the background was brayered, Masking off the moon wanting a slight haze round it.

The sentiment at the bottom is a combination of 2 paper artsey stamps. Stamping the eye first then, masking that off, stamped the words on top.

A couple of challenges I am entering this into
