So glad we met on the Web

November 01, 2016

Hi there,

it's Tanja here with another Halloween project:

  • cover a stitched panel of watercolor paper with Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke)
  • apply more Distress Ink (Black Soot, Dusty Concord) through the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Shattered
  • spritz the panel with Pearlized Water for extra sparkle
  • color the cute spider from the Gerda Steiner Designs Bats stamp set with Delta, Touch Twin Brush Markers and a white gel pen
  • add googly eyes as an interactive element
  • adhere the sentiment from the same stamp set with foam tape
  • mat the panel onto a piece of green patterned paper from the Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale Patterns and Solids 6x6 paper pad
  • add some sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Trick or Treat Mix as final embellishments

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
