Oh my goth!

I recently received by the Goth Fairy (AP-257G) and Spiked Fence (ED-010-H) from Third Coast. I ran out of time at Halloween, but felt like using them and found some challenges that were perfect for the scene I had planned! Gotta love that!

Goth Fairy (found on page 1 of the Late Spring '06 Supplement) was colored with Copic markers. Her skin and wings are a very pale blue violet. I went over her stocking with a gray to make them look like translucent blackish hose. Black Glaze pens were used on her hair to make it black, sleek, and shiny!

The graveyard scene is a stamp from the late, lamented Odd Bird Planet. The tombstones, statuary, mausoleum, and grass were colored with Copics.

The fairy and the graveyard scene were masked with Windsor & Newton fluid mask. A circle mask was cut from Eclipse tape. Then I airbrushed the night sky with three Copic blues.

The masks were peeled off and the Spiked Fence, from page 1 of the Summer '06 Supplement, was stamped over the graveyard scene with Onyx Black VersaFine. Tree branches were added using Large Birch Trunks (CM-055-P), from page 11 of the Spring '07 supplement, to frame the scene. The final touch was added "stars" with a toothpick and Opaque White. It also helped camouflage some mistakes. Yahoo.

I shall enter challenges at:
The Outlawz Friday Promarker/Copic "Goth" challenge!
Drunken Stampers "Up in the Air" challenge!
iCopic #56 "Background" challenge.

Thanks for visiting today!
