Happy Haunting Home Decor Canvas

Good morning!

Have you guys seen the new DCWV Stardust Stacks?  Love these!!!  They are so gorgeous they perfect for created Halloween home decor projects.   My sister LOVES Halloween.  It's her favorite holiday.  She and her husband have a huge party every year, decorating their house to the nines.  So I thought I would make her a 12x12 inch canvas to hang on her walls.  Since her favorite color is purple, I made that the dominant color.  All the paper is from the new Stardust DCWV stacks.  Besides the printed paper stack, they have a matching solid card stock stack that includes glitter and foil paper, as well as regular card stock.  To create the glittery purple canvas, I painted the canvas with purple acrylic paint, and then sprayed it with Gold Spray and Sparkle Glitter Varnish.  It only takes a few minutes to dry which rocks.

 The gorgeous witch image is a digital stamp from Hannah Lynn Art, which I colored with alcohol markers.  The great thing about using digital images is that you can make it as small or large as you want it to be.  Here's a close up of her.  I added Stickles to her dress for more sparkle.

I also added a few corrugated bats I had in my stash, as well as some foam ghost stickers that came already glittered in a light purple.   The "Happy Haunting" title was cut from the Cricut cartridge Happy Haunting.

I am entering my canvas in the following challenges:
