Seriously Spooky

Hello All,

Today I am entering INKspirationalThe Paper Players and CASology. This card is probably the oddest, spookiest card I have ever made. This card not only looks odd but was created oddly as well. I will reveal this later on. Firstly, here is my card for today, enjoy... 

Creepy, huh?! I was trying out a new for me technique by water coloring on dark paper. I thought it couldn't be done until I tried it out! I made several panels and with my mind blown I stored the extras for future use!!! 
The skull face is so creepy coming out of the watercolor. It looks like it is after you to take your soul. EEEK!
I wanted the sentiment to be discovered and not the center of attention.
I stamped the sentiment and embossed it using clear powder. The sentiment was comprised out of two sets; one from Studio G and the other from SU (retired), I think.
 Challenges entered:
CASology: Week 270- odd
INKspirational: Challenge 145- One Layer Card
The Paper Players: CAS Spooky- PP366

As noted above this card was created strangely too. I made several panels using the same technique. Some turned out and decided to store the rest for future use.

 I also had other experimental projects stored with it. One such project used vegetable oil as part of the design. Turned out good enough for me to store as well. I know you can see where this is going, but I stored the oil panel under one of the watercolor panels and the oil seeped through to the watercolor paper. 

A few weeks later, I was looking for another panel and almost screamed when I saw this!! I didn't make this!! Then it dawned on me what had happened. Looking at it further I thought it would make a fantastic spooky card. I saw these challenges and right away thought of this panel.

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best,

This is a seriously fantastic Halloween card!! I love it, though, I am still not sure how it came to be.

This is an incredible card! So hard to believe that's just watercolor! Thanks for playing along with CASology!

LeAnne said...

Wow....whatever way you created this, it is incredible! VERY spooky but very "enchanting" as well! Perfectly CAS too! Thanks for sharing this with our Paper Players challenge this week!

Shawna this card really is so spooky - it totally fits the brief! I was intrigued as to how you created it and whilst it sounds like it was something of a happy accident it would have absolutely freaked me if I had found it in my pile of experimental watercolours. It does look like a skull. Just fabulous - thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!

I don't think I've ever seen a card this spooky. Amazing! Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges.

That skull in the sky is exactly like some kind of soul-stealer. You must have been totally shocked to find it in your drawer! It is a seriously disturbing image - so great for this challenge. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

GREAT STORY! I couldn't believe it when I saw your card... it is fantastic and I just had to know how you did it! So love how it all came together... not sure about recreation... but watercoloring on black will be tried! Thanks.
