Accessories: Spider Web impressions folder, brayer, circle punches,itty bitty punch pack,small oval punch, concord crush 1/2in poly stitched ribbon,crop-a-dile,white gel pen,curvy label punch

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
