For this week's "Green" challenge, I pulled out two older stamps that I absolutely love. This ghoulish portrait was created by combining Hattie and Fabulous Frames 1.  In order to fit Hattie into the frame, I manipulated the width of the stamp by slightly pulling on either side before sticking it to my acrylic block. The frame was stamped in Memento Dessert Sand. I then created a mask by immediately stamping the frame on another piece of cardstock.  I cut out the inner portion of the frame from the mask and stuck it over my good image.  I then inked up Hattie and stamped her right over the mask to create the portrait. The image was coloured in Copics. I also added some additional shading with coloured pencils and Conte crayons. The background was created with Copics. I selected several colours and applied dots of ink with a "pouncing" motion. After multiple layers, I pounced the colourless blender over the entire background to create a watercolour effect. 

Time to go get inky and enter our Green challenge....hop on over the the KKS Blog for more inspiration from the Krafty Girls!!
