Spooky Pumpkins...

Morning Peeps! Tis me again, back with another ATC to giveaway... this time it is a Hallowe'en themed one... using those luverly Tim Holtz Hallowe'en Mini's... I have to say, this is my first foray into the whole Hallowe'en thing this year and I am a total convert... I can see this skelington being used for things other than spooky too!



So, the base of the ATC was made with a piece of the Retro Grunge paper stack, coloured with Wild Honey and edged with Vintage Photo Distress Inks. The spider web was stamped with Brushed Corduroy and the bats and barbed wire with black StaZon. I stamped the skelington onto Grungepaper and cut him out and then once he was in place on the ATC, I added Glossy Accents to make him pop... however! The pics for some reason, are showing him to have a whiteish tinge to him... not sure why cos the GA is all dried... but I quite like it... it looks more... erm... lived in ROFL I have some beaded fringing in my stash which is white and pearly... so I made up a Mini Mister of Spiced Marmalade Re-Inker, mixed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls and water, soaked the fringe with this mix and then dried it. I added some wire to the top of the ATC to make it into a hangy thing.. well, you know me and my hangy things... love 'em ;o))



If you would like to own this ATC, pretty please leave me a comment here and I will pop all the comments into the Random.org thingy and a winner, chosen at random, will be announced next Saturday, 30th October '10. Oooh, and while I am on about all things winning... have you seen our monthly challenge? The theme this month, set by moi, is Layers... and you can win £15 worth of Artistic Stamper stamps and KlingOn to mount them onto if you join in... that is open until October 31st... so you still have a week to play :O)) All the deets for that are HERE. Hope you have a brill weekend and thanks for looking... TTFN

I think this is brill. Halloween should go on longer, like Xmas 'cos the stash is amazing. Good idea about colouring the fringe and I really like the pumpkin.

Love the fringing to the bottom of the ATC Hels, great finishing touch. Skeleton looks so spooky and the GA really make him pop from the ATC. Great piece. Tracy Evans x
