For my card I wanted to replicate the cool technique Tim uses where he masks off the spider, adding texture with paste and then removes the mask so that the image sits behind the paste. He also uses glossy accents on only part of the pumpkin stamp which I also thought was a cool effect which I would use. I also wanted to have a go using the new Distress Sprays for the background but guess what.... I don't own any! However I do have some Dylusions sprays in a couple of colours so I decided to dig those out and have a play and get very inky fingers.
I decided to use my Visible Image sleigh stamp as the masked stamp and I first embossed it in black on my card.
I left a small part of the sky white as I really
like this effect.
I used this cute very old wood mounted snowman stamp in place of the pumpkin Tim used.
I coloured him up with Distress inks,using a paintbrush and some water and then added the Glossy accents and some Distress glitter.
I just added the Glossy Accents to the head and body of my snowman to add some dimension. I also added some Pumice Stone distress glitter for extra sparkle.

Enjoy the rest of the week...I am starting to get into cake decorating mode as Daisy is 1 in 5 weeks time and my SIL celebrates his 30th at the end of November....time to plan some cakes. I have Friday off work again this week to see my girlies and I am off to a crafty day with my friend Brenda today. I will then catch up with my darling son on Saturday. I always take him up some lunch as he works all day will probably walk Bear for him too. All in all it's a good end to the week of me.
Bye for now,
