πŸ’€ Reaper Rising πŸ’€
card by Leigh
My Day 25 of 31 Days of Halloween Hop inspiration for you today is a creepy dark magic scene featuring Reaper, Zella and Zylah Shadow FaeriesπŸŽƒ

 The witching hour draws near and the Shadow Faeries are busy conjuring their dark master!

Here he comes, the Reaper is Rising, surrounded by mystic fire!

I coloured the Reaper with Copics and fussy cut him out and printed the Shadow Faeries and a couple of the Reaper’s bats out onto mixed media cardstock I coloured with Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Wild Honey Distress Oxide sprays.  I love the rusted metal look to the background and die cuts.  I then painted a halo with lightning around the Reaper with glow-in-the-dark paint.

I used mixed media cardstock left over from previous projects to cut out Tim’s Funky Foliage and Twisted Edge die cuts.  To give the die cut pieces a chunkier feel I also cut them out of heavy weight black cardstock and layered them..

 To frame the scene I added Tim’s mini twisted stencil detailing around 3 sides with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I  also edged all the die cuts with Black Soot then glued them to the bottom edge.  I adhered the panel to a folded base made from heavy weight cardstock and finished by adhering the Reaper in place with black foam tape.
