Simply B Stamps, 13 days of Halloween Challenge 4

So are you ready for another challenge?

Day 4 of our 13 days of Halloween challenges is here and this time its ...

MAKE IT GLOW


I used the digital image Winnie from Wickidz available in the shop.  I thought she was perfect for this challenge.  I have used two different techniques to add glow to my shadow box.


The first was basic colouring using my copics.... I started using a pale yellow around the flame of the candles and worked in a light grey.  I used flicking strokes to help create the illusion of flickering candles and graded the colour from light to dark.


The second technique ...... ok not a technique at all but its great all the same!!
My lovely friend Sheri in America sent me some fabulous Glow in the dark paint in a squeezey bottle!
I am so in love with this stuff!!!!

It doesn't photograph to well but you get the idea!!
I used it to highlight the liquid in Winnie's potion bottles, smoke puffs and the drips on the drippy goo border (a pressie from the gorgeous Erin!).
I also part filled a Tim Holtz alterations glass vial with it as I love the depth of glow it gives.



Hope you like and this has given you some ideas for your Glowing projects!
