Spooky goings on at Totally Tilda

Hi guys, back today with my hanger for Totally Tilda, I don't really do Halloween but Kay loves it so all the projects I've done will probably end up at her house lol
The base is made using a Go Kreate die and the cheesecloth looks like cob web to me, I slightly sponged black and grey distress inks on to darken it slightly,
the background scene is made by using a Magnolia moon stamp which I have distressed with distress ink and ink dusters, small tutorial below
the fabby chipboard house/ fence and bat were part of my DT kit from La La land crafts, they are awesome!!! I added tiny pearls to the bat for it's eyes, all the chipboard items are coloured with distress inks,
the pumpkins are also from La la land crafts are are a fabby die cut complete with the face dies,

Tilda is coloured with my copics then fussy cut out and I bent and shaped her legs so she sitting down, to finish off the hanger I added a bit of gesso here and there,

Mini tutorial

To do a scene like mine you will need 

ink dusters
watercolour paper
distress inks - weathered wood/ black soot
Magnolia - moon stamp

I stamped the stamp roughly were I wanted it to be, not to high up and slightly off centre,
then I got the la la land crafts heart tree which I had cut out of card stock and placed it roughly where I wanted a cast shadow to be,

I then dabbed the two colours of distress ink through the tree holding my ink duster upright, sorry I have no pictures of this as I so need another pair of hands and hubby was at work lol, going round the outside of the tree also gives it a  depth shadow too,

keep the die cut  tree as you can then use it on your project!
shown is a tree using a lighter cardstock where as on here I used black,

when this is done I take my ink duster and my weathered wood and using side brush motions sweep from the side edges into the middle using light strokes in the centre for just a hint of colour so the moon appears to cast a shine, I  usually dab off a little of the ink on scrap paper for a lighter tint too, then go over this with the black soot again using sweeping motions from the sides, I used the ink from the pad straight onto my paper for this and lift my brush off using  a flicking  motion,

 again sorry i have no pictures but if you would like some just let me know and I will do a tutorial again with hubby's hands ready to hold the camera lol,

I keep on doing this till I get the right amount of colour/depth I want,
I also did the same background on my la- la -  land bat girl project  using the (paler card stock tree) a few posts ago, scroll down if you would like to see that too,

I then mounted the scene onto card too finish off,
