Halloween is around the corner

I am in the middle of working on some ATC’s for the next swap I am participating in, and I got distracted. I started making the ATCs, but then I screwed one up. It still looked kind of cool though, so I decided to bring it into Photoshop and play around with it. I wanted to combine it with a vintage image I got from an old Puck magazine. Here are the steps I did and where the image is now. I need to play around with it more, to integrate her a little bit better, but I need to get a move on on my errands and things ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

First I started with my screwed up stamped ATC. The technique I was using was the one I posted about a while ago with using Graphite and VersaMark. You can see that postย  here- Graphite and VersaMark Resist Technique.

Then I scanned in the image of the magazine front cover and here she is…
Halloween Graveyard Girl
Isn’t she cool? She just screamed Halloween to me, altho I believe it was an Easter issue ๐Ÿ™‚
I brought both images into Photoshop in order to make a composite image. I had to play with hue/saturation, blending modes, pull her apart and then back together, adjust opacity settings and finally build up the bottom of the card because the pumpkins were cut off, but here is the final image…
