The bewitching hour strikes again as the wonderful Linda brings us to page 64 of "The Compendium of Curiosities." Our lesson for the week is to create Fragment Charms and I know there will be those show-offs out there, who will make some incredible art! Then there is me!!! I can spend an entire day - no bull - and this is what happened! All I knew is that I was going to alter a box top. The outside back and sides are designer papers that I cut and glued down along with the inner frame. The back of the inside box top was done using a Batik technique in a previous lesson and in which I did the spider webs, then the "GROSS" spiders were embossed and highlighted using a technique from the Technique Junkies. The embossing folder is a new Sizzix release! This background would look really great on a card where you actually see more of it. Miss Skully is a new Tim Holtz stamp and she was white embossed on black and cut out. Now I first had her hanging via a chain and I just hated that she kept wanting to turn her back to me, so we added five layers of mounting tape to her back. We wanted a little dimension. I understand she does not care for the hair, but we all have bad hair days and at least she has hair! We gave her eyes and the wiggly ones my DH so adores.
Vicki so kindly sent to me. Also Vicki is having a little fun challenge of her own and because it involves "Women and a stamp," guess where this is going. I don't think this is what Miss Cheerful Ink Pad had in mind, but I want her to see the beautiful skirt! By all means pop over to Vicki's and join in with the fun, because it is all about the art and share and today is Vicki's birthday!
I am also sending this beauty over to Gingersnap Creations GC73 - Gothic Elements. Not sure exactly how much Goth is happening here, but I am sure if you look hard, there is something!
