FabScraps Wild At Heart - Jolly Halloween

FabScraps – Wild At Heart – Jolly Halloween

FabScraps newest collection, Wild At Heart, is chock full of bold, strong colors.  Halloween  is also filled with bold strong colors so why not pair the two up?   I used a piece of Wild At Heart, Skating Wild 1 paper as my inspiration.  It is red, it is bright and it looks amazing with a touch of black.  

The vintage photo I selected came from Graphics Fairy.  It is an old postcard that has 1909 on it.  I thought the blue background was a nice compliment to the robust red. 

I finger painted some acrylics on the page - red, yellow, terracotta then I took a paper towel and blotted them together to blend a little. 

After the paint was dry, I stamped some big flourishes and then topped the flourishes with Prima crystal flourishes for added dimension. 

Below are easy instructions on how I created this page. 

FabScraps Wild At Heart Collection  is now available at the Flyuing Unicorns.
