Happy Halloween

Today, this branch is spooky--come back closer to Christmas--it will be decked with snow--in spring it will have flowers.

TLC183 halloween branch

But today, it is home to a fat glittery spider.

The branch was stamped using the faux dry embossing technique.  Do I think it looks like it has been dry embossed??  No, I think I would need to try different ink/paper color combos to make that work.  BUT, I do think the effect is rather cool!!

The branch was stamped with Frayed Burlap (Tim Holtz Distress Ink) and then with a white pigment ink.  The webs were stamped with Old Paper (THDI).  The spider was stamped with the Frayed Burlap, colored with pencils, and then outlined with a glitter gel pen.

The ribbon was frayed/melted with my heat tool.

My hope, was a lighthearted spooky.

Thanks for stopping by!!
