With FALL being just around the corner, I thought I would celebrate HALLOWEEN for my Fall Project. I have used four of the Prima Doll Stamps, dressed them each in costume, and presented them in a HALLOWEEN CENTERPIECE that would be FUN for any gathering during this season. I hope you enjoy them, as much as I enjoyed making them!
FIRST is Doll with Pocket Dress dressed as a WITCH!
I stamped the doll on a Prima Tag and used the outline of her dress to continue it on down, until it was a long gown. I used a #100 black Copic Marker to color in the dress and freehand cut a witches hat and colored it with the same black marker. I also used Copics to color her hair grey and skin a light greenish beige. To add accents to her gown and hat, I used Stickles glitter in Mermaid green.
SECOND is Riley dressed as a Pumpkin!
Riley is also stamped on a Prima Tag (for strength) and I colored her with my Copic Markers. I drew a pumplin shape freehand on watercolor paper and used my Inktense Watercolor Pencils from Derwent to color the pumpkin, shading it with red and brown in the shadow areas, and yellow in the highlight areas. To give it a little sparkle, I used some liquid Craft Twinkles to add sparkle to the pumpkin. I also stamped out a few generic leaves to place around her neck and on her head as a hat!
THIRDLY is Olive, dressed like a Kitty!
Olive was also stamped on a Prima Tag. I colored her exhisting outfit in Copic Marker #100 black, and added Capri leggings, tiny black pointy ears on her headband, and a long curvy black tail. I also added black wiskers, and stamped a black shadow cat from the Martha Stewart Halloween Icon Stamp Set.
LASTLY is Doll with double tiered dress, dressed like a BAT!
She was also stamped on a Prima Tag. I colored her exhisting dress with the #100 Copic Marker, and left her skin the pale off white color of the natural tag. I extended the sleeve of her dress to look like bat wings, and after coloring, highlighted the entire figure with Starry Night Stickles glitter. I drew tiny fangs on her face and detached her legs, and re-glued them to the side, to make her look as if she were flying.
TO COMPLETE THE ARRANGEMENT;
I took a tall 3" X 9" orange candle and placed it on a plate with a green beaded candleholder. Using POP-dots I adhered the witch to the left side of the candle and the kitty on the right side. I then placed the pumpkin on the left of the witch and the bat at the top of the candle. I stamped several other pumpkin stamps with leaves that I had on heavy watercolor paper and colored them with my Inktense Watercolor pencils. I placed them at the edge of the plate along with a tiny sign, wishing everyone a Happy Hallow's Eve.
