Dont' Walk Under The Spooky Tree!

As part of the ongoing saga of the Halowe'en hangy piece that I started over a year ago is another element that I made today - an ATC
...did you sing along to Don't sit under the apple tree as you read it? I did! LOL

Masked the ATC to drag DI scattered straw to make the moon
....masked this circle and dragged DI milled lavender across the rest of the background only it had become a bit contaminated with black somehow and it's a more blended colour but looks fine I suppose LOL!
....the T!m tree is a bit more chunkier than the real die cut would be as I don't have that Vagabond yet....and used a die cut very kindly given to me (you know who you are and thanks) to trace round and cut by hand
....dragged DI black soot to colour and stamped the T!m eye onto the trunk in Versicolour boysenberry....what is it with the colour purple it never seems to reproduce well on my photo's!
....stamped the T!m skellibob in Archival black
...I have to admit that it was not the way I had intended as stupido me completely forgot to mask off the tree!!!.....I had wanted just the ribs and head to be peeking out from behind it! HOL
....should have had more forethought and just stamped it on the background before sticking the tree down! Hey Ho! ;)
...Studio G letters to make the word fragments.

Just for the fun of it I'm linking my layers of stamping ATC to The Artistic Stamper monthly challenge ('cos I can't win you know...being on the DT)....You've got plenty of time to enter still as the closing date is October 31st....spooky time!
There is a random candy prize on offer too from the generous Jennie so it's defo worth playing along ;
Thanks for looking and happy stamping :)
xoxo Sioux


  1. I think Mr Skellibob looks FAB lurking in the shadows. FAB bit of masking too me thinks.xx
