Spooky Pink - Apothecary Shrine

This started off as a demonstration piece for my last Country View Workshop where we made the first Halloween shrine and for some reason I decided to use the pink paints with the fabric and hardener. I've rather enjoyed adding the bits to make a spooky pink affair to fit the current CVC challenge.

I used the Gothic 31 stamps from Artistic Outpost for the ghostly lady, the mouse and the 31st button.

The background is special, some of you may recognise the technique which I am teaching at Ministry Of Mixology in Coventry next month using DecoArt media fluid acrylic paints. I stamped the image on the boards before adding them individually and adhered them into the back of the shrine. You can see the texture achieved by using DecoArt's fabric hardener and coloured it with the media acrylic paints.

 Some apothecary bottles, candle stick, a rat with Tim's seasonal chit chat stickers for the words finish off the spooky feel.

Another little decoration to add to my display for Halloween.

I hope you can join us over at the CVC challenge and show us your spooky creations.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
