This is a card I created for swaps at our Stampin" Up regionals' in Baltimore,MD. To start with I brayered basic black ink on my impressions pad(the flat slide). I cut a piece of Concord Crush card stock(4 1/4x5 1/2),placed it in my foder and ran through my big shot. What an awesome effect! I love how the concord pops out from the black. Pretty cool,huh? Allow time to dry. In the mean time, I made a punch art spider and bug. For the bug, I first stamped the face from the 'make a monster' set on peach parfait cs. I used my white gel pen to color his eyeballs and teeth. I then used my 1/2in circle punch,centering over face,and punched out. I punched a small oval in peach parfait for the bugs body. I wrapped the bug in concord crush ribbon to resemble a bug caught in the webbing. For my spider, I stamped the fangs from the make a monster set on black CS and used the crop-a-dile to punch out two eyeballs. I placed a real red circle under the black3/4in circle to give the appearance of red eyes. I made black circles in the eyes and a small white highlight,also. For his body, I punched out the 'x-shaped' bitty punch,and also placed a 1in circle behind. I know black widows have an hour glass design but thought this punch looked cute:) For his(or her) legs, I used the curvy label punch and just slid it a small bit each time,cutting out 4 times(to give the appearance of legs). I stamped the "sweet treats" saying from teeny tiny wishes set on peach parfait and cut out with the word window punch. I layered the saying on black,concord and olive cs punched with the modern label punch. I adhered all my elements onto the now dry spider web:D I just thought this would be such a cute idea and I think it came together well.
And using the same technique for the web, I also created this "Dark and Dreary"card.
Such a cool effect and a "Sweet Treat"!!!
Until Next Thought~Kris
