Steampunk Halloween

Hi everyone,

More and more I get into the Halloween mood. I think it is a really great inspiration for creating projects. You can make it as spooky as you want. For this project I wanted to combine Halloween with Steampunk. Both are favorites sources of inspiration of mine. So why not combine?
With this tag I participate in the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 2 from Linda Ledbetter. We were told that we had to open the book on page 41. Here can the Kraft Resist technique be found. Tim has done a video about it recently. Click here to watch it.


 
The Kraft Resist background I covered with some Picket Fence Distress Stains, so that the background will be lighter and the Fall Distress Inks keep their beautiful color. When I think about Steampunk I think of the stamp with the 3 gentlemen. Since my theme is Halloween, they had to play their part and I gave them a skull instead of their own heads. This skull is exactly the same as the new stamp from Tim. I actually bought this image as a pattern in the Silhouette Store. It is probably a general image...

As I forgot to mention, I'm also joining in at Frilly and Funky, as their challenge is resist it!



Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra
