Halloween Altered Book-part 3

Today I thought I would show you a few more views from the Halloween altered book I am working on.
Images On the left-
a- Stampotique-Daniel Torrente design image-stamped and embossed in Stampendous black embossing powder and colored with Copics
b-Inkadinkado-Who Needs to Be Freaky stamp
c-at the top you can see a thin snippet of a line from a Memory Box Halloween word image stamp.
The rest of this side is painted with acrylic paints-a bit of stenciling on the right middle edge of this page and some yellow sticker ribbon added.
On the right-
a-the calendar card is from the latest October Afternoon release-Witch Hazel
b-Also some orange polka dot washi tape.
I think this Daniel Torrente's images really speaks to a Halloween ball. Especially embossed in black- makes her outfit look kind of dressed up and formal.
Up for another photo?
This great retro card is from October Afternoon- the Witch Hazel ephemera.
 I tucked it into a couple of  book pages that ripped down to thin stubs but did not glue together to make base pages. I added some yellow paint and some orange buttons too. 
The only thing about this page is that it is on its side, but I have been putting in a lot of little mini-pages between the full book pages.
Makes the book a little more interesting, I think.

Here's what the back of this card looks like. 
This is BEFORE I aged it a bit,
 thought it looked a little to perfect and nice right here. 
Will show you the aged look most likely another time.

And finally here's a stained glass page I made as an insert between book pages. (Just like I inserted the invite I showed you above. You know, interest adding pages...)
I love this technique- and you can kind of see it ok here.
I used black card stock and a Cheery Lynn Design die. Then it cut a piece of acetate and glued it down on the back side of the die cut image.  Using Copic Markers I colored in on the back side of the acetate, but when you look through you can see the colors. They look like stained glass.
Always fun to play with techniques.

So that is my post today.
Thanks for visiting.
