ATC - Halloween

Happy HUMP day everyone, its been a super hectic few days celebrating a birthday, general day to day life and scrapping, at this stage I'm unsure whether I want to get over the hump or just roll back down the way I came, flop down on the ground....and do some good old stretches whilst I'm there.  Hows your week been so far?

Earlier in the week I finished creating my ATC's for the Dusty Attic Halloween Challenge, I have been wanting to participate in that Challenge for awhile and finally gave it ago.  WOW,  working in such a small confined space is a lot harder than what it looks, the ladies over at DA make it look so easy with their gorgeous little pieces of art.

Well I am proud to announce I have completed my first ever ATC's along with a little lesson learn't, do not  pick a die cut that is not only tiny but will also need to be run through the machine a couple of more times to get all the pieces.  Whilst it maybe fun making one, not so much when you are making 7 more,  and gluing!!! I'm saying no more I am just going to show you some pics so you get my drift about picking


 I think the Memory Box Spider die looks so funny dropping down from the Skeleton.

The wording says ENTER IF U DARE!!!

I used these cute little door plates from Dusty Attic, I coloured them first with some Luminarte pigments, I stamped a little image onto them, and then inked around the edges.  You can see just how tiny the skeleton bodies is.

I used Tim Holtz chipboard that I cut down to 2.5"x 3.5" which is the base of my ATC this comes embossed with a Harlequin pattern. I then gave it a couple of treatments starting with Gesso, Textured Paste, Stamping, and two colours of glimmer mist and a some Luminarte pigments.

 This is just another shot showing you all the little pieces from the die cut, won't be rushing to use that one If you are looking for a good Skeleton die Memory Box has an awesome one that you only have to run through you machine once.

 2.5 x 6.1 inches

Other Products UsedPumpkin were cut from EP Chillings Worth Manor Range, Pink Paislee Phantom Stamps, Kaiser mini blooms & bling, Memory Box Spider & Web, MM Stamps, and tulle.

Hopefully I haven't left anything out, if there is anything you ever wish to know please feel free to drop me a line.  Thanks for looking and for leaving me your lovely comments on previous projects.

Have a great remaining week, bye for now.
