Being October the theme this month for the Chocolate Baroque Quintile swap is SPOOKY.  I'm a bit short on Hallowween stamps etc but I did have this one from them.  It was stamped onto heavy watercolour paper and a mask cut for the moon before colouring the background with Distress ink, some of which was lifted off with splashes of water.  Using a reverse mask I then brushed some colour over the moon.  I've tried all along to make two different tiles for this challenge but I'm afraid this time around the two are very similar with just the water splashes being in different positions!


  1. Great quintile, mine are very similar this month the only difference this time is the colour

  2. I love the tile Val, and the great background with the water splashes. I know what you mean about making them different, but sometime you just have to do the same, and after all they will go to different people.
