What a Spooktacular Creation!

Hi SP Bloggers ... Up next in our SP Pumpkin Challenge is Miriam's Spooktacular Creation!  Don't forget to leave your comments at the end of each Challenge blog.  You just might win a little something from our random drawing at the end of it all.

If you'd like to make this, here's what you need:  paper mache pumpkin; Acrylic Paint Dabber (Pitch Black, Lettuce & Sunset Orange); Distress Crackle Paint (Peeled Paint, Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy); Distress Inks (Black Soot, Forest Moss, Vintage Photo & Rusty Hinge); Distress Stains (Forest Moss & Brushed Pewter); Tim Holtz Alterations Dies (On the Edge Graveyard, Movers & Shapers Headstone & Mini Spider/31 Set); Die Cut Machine; Base Tray; Grungepaper; Bo Bunny Cardstock; Stickles Dry Glitter (Black Diamond; Black Enamel).

Paint the pumpkin with Sunset Orange and the stem with Lettuce  Use the Forest Moss, Vintage Photo & Rusty Hinge Distress Inks over the top.  Layer colors for desired effect.

For the graveyard base, paint with Lettus and then cover with crackle paint.  Ink all over with Forest Moss and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.

For the graveyard fence, die cut the graveyard from grungepaper.  Swipe with Black Dabber in areas (not all over).  Use Forest Moss Distress Ink and stain.  Accent with Brushed Pewter Distress stain.

For the spiders, die cut them from grungepaper.  Ink with Black Soot.  Add Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy, Black Diamond Stickles Dry Glitter and Black Enamel.

Die cut headstones from cardstock.  Swipe with Black Dabber then go over with Forest Moss Distress Stain.

Assemble with Glossy Accents or the adhesive of your choice.
