Colors Used:
Autumn Terracotta, White & Black
Techniques Used:
Stamping, Sanding, & Dimensional Elements.
To Do:
Stamp cobweb with Black ink in top right corner of page. Distress all pieces with Sandpaper on edges. Attach 12x3 black CS piece about 1/2" from the bottom of the page. Attach 12x2 Autumn Ter. piece on top about 1/4" from top and 3/4" from bottom of black piece. Attach 12x1 1/4" black piece on top about 1/4" from top of Autumn Terr. piece. Attach smallest piece 1x12" centered on top of black. Stamp cobweb with Black ink in bottom left corner of page. (on top of all pieces of paper) Attach large 6x8 black piece about 1/4" from left side and colored stripe pieces on bottom. Take ribbon and tie ends in a double knot. Cut in center of large loop. Attach ribbon to the BACKSIDE ONLY of one of the 3x3 Autumn Ter. pieces. Attach both pieces on right side of page centered equally in space available. Normally I would have covered the 'H' Dimensional Element piece with CS or inked it. But, since I only had one on hand everyone traced and cut out their own H. After cutting out the H and sand distressing it. Attach it to the top left corner of the page (overlapping black is ok). Stamp small cobweb, in black ink, in the top left corner of the page over the H. Stamp 'ALLOWEEN' next to the H with Autumn Terr. ink. Take small piece of ribbon and fold in half (cut edges on a diagonal) and attach to bottom left of the 'H' with a black brad.
