SCD Red and Black torso

This weeks theme is red and back and after much deliberation i decided to go for a Halloween style torso. For my background i used rusty hinge and barn door distress inks. I then used my spotty mask that i used on a tag and sprayed poppy glimmer mist through it. I then stamped black bats on my background with a new set of stamps i found from waltzing mouse. They are good value and they come from Ireland. Go and take a peek at and their blog for inspiration. Anyway back to the torso, I found a witch image and cut it out and glued it in place, added some bling and used Tim Holtz distress paint Rock Candy on my background. I like the effect but it has covered my spotty glimmer misting. Finally i added my sentiment which is also from the same stamp set.
