Hello again. It is time Friday so time for another challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge.
The current challenge is being hosted by the lovely Gunn-Eirill and she has chosen a colour challenge. The colours are Orange, Black or Purple and you need to chose at least 2 colours to work with.
This challenge is being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl.
As you can see I misread the instructions myself and thought you had to work with all the colours so I went for all 3.
i started with a tin of Nescafe that luckily had an orange lid.
So I set about preparing the background first. I cut a piece of black card and painted it generously with PVA glue. I dried it quickly with a heat tool making sure that it was still damp yet dry to touch (hope this makes sense). I then painted over it with Paperartsy orange acrylic paint.
Then the magic happens and as it dries completely it starts to split and crack!
Next I cut out a rectangle die cut from the Emerald range by Hochanda, out of black card. Using the alphabet dies from the same range I die cut 2 sets of upper and lower case letters from black card covered with a Stick it sheet. I also die cut a flourish from another set of dies.
I stuck them down on the rectangle and added ripe persimmon distress glitter to the sentiment and seedless preserve to the flourish. I stuck the whole thing down onto the covered tin. I then added purple pearls around the edge.
I was left with loads of letters at this point so I spelt SCREAM and BOO! and stuck them to the back. These I used black soot distress glitter on.
Next it was time for the cobwebs. So out came the Angelina fibres. I used white blue pearl and a purple one. Both had purple hues, hence why I chose them. I scattered them around and heated them slightly and they adhered to wherever they where.
The final thing was some shrink plastic embellies. I stamped the skull by Tim Holtz, die cut it and heated it to shrink. I also die cut 3 spiders from a similar Tim Holtz set and coloured them with alcohol inks. ou can see them below.
And finally I filled the tin with Halloween treats.
So there you have my Halloween project for this year. I hope you like my offering. It would be nice to see on the other side at FFFC. Please join us for a chance to win some fab prizes, Theresa xx
