As promised, this week we revisit Halloween with a greeting from a trio of spiders.
I was inspired by a card in the Fall 2011 issue of Paper Creations magazine- page 54. Halloween Spiders was one of three cards designed by artist AJ Otto. When I saw AJ’s trio of spiders, I knew I had the perfect stamp to play with. However, AJ used a flat background then layered the green and purple strips. The purple was cut/ punched to look like a scalloped eyelet trim. A fine orange chord was the fiber of choice.
I wanted to expand on the ‘spider’ theme. I found the Spiderweb embossing folder (similar to the Sizzix one) from Darice at the convention last month. I chose it to add some texture to the expanse of white. The spiders didn’t stamp completely on embossed edges so I just touched them up with a black flair pen. I used the MS spider web border punch to continue the theme in the purple stripe. The black fiber yarn with a bit of silver filament running through it seemed to be the perfect choice to bring it all together.
I chose the ‘web-encased’ Halloween sentiment from a set I picked up at Big Lots.
Next week… we’ll stick with the Halloween theme but bring in a bit of vintage.
