Here’s how I made this fun Halloween Wall Art named the Grumpy Back Seat Driver of the Halloween Hearse for the grumpy-looking buzzard in the back of the hearse.
Inspiration for the Grumpy Back Seat Driver Wall Art
I got this idea to use the Tim Holtz “Home for the Holidays” car from Andrea Ockey Parr. She’s one of the design team members for Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge. She made a flying car with 2 of the trick or treaters from the new Sizzix “Trick or Treat” thinlits. I imagined it would be cool to have the car converted to a hearse by adding more windows in the back and to have a witch driving. The only problem is that all the witch stamps I have face to the left and the car faces to the right. Well, it was pretty easy to turn the car around as opposed to mirror stamping which is a technique I’ve never done.

Elements for the Halloween Scene
The witch has to be flying over a city. I used various Cityscape buildings (leftovers from previous projects) with yellow glued to the windows. They were distressed with the same color Distress Oxides I used on the background – Black Soot, Iced Spruce, and Wilted Violet.
For the background piece below the frame I sprayed a piece of watercolor paper with Wilted Violet Distress stain and then inked over it with Distress Oxide Black Soot using the Stampers Anonymous “Batground” stencil.
Thank you – to all you artists out there who continue to inspire me.
I am going to be sharing this project with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge “Not a Card”. I neglected to mention that it is adhered to several thick layers of cardboard with a hole placed so you can hang it on the wall – it is not a card. Also I will share it with #holtzforhalloween and #timholtzhalloween2017 on Instagram and Facebook.
