Samhain canvas

This is my contribution for a circle swap for Samhain/Hallowe'en.

Canvas coloured with DI - pine green & black soot, then sealed with hairspray. Stencilled over the top using a dreamweaver forest stencil with shabby shutters and scattered straw DI.
A4 card coloured with DI in greens and browns and then printed onto with excerpts from Wikipedia. Tree shapes cut out using Tattered Angel designs as a stencil.
Fallen leaves were stamped with Versacube inks on clear stamps of unknown origin :)
Verse was printed onto cheap copier paper, inked with DI.
