Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be hopping along with so many talented stampers for the Blast From the Past blog hop from Taylored Expressions!  With all the Halloween sets and projects hitting the stores, I was inspired to make a card using Spooky Expressions - I love the images in this set and I'm so excited it's creeping up on Halloween again so I can get them all inky all over again!  I started by stamping the web in Memento Tuxedo Black and the sponged the circle with Pumpkin Spice Colorbox Liquid Chalk - heavier on the outside and lightening up toward the center.  The spider is stamped in Tuxedo Black and then I added a little red to the center to make that spider all sorts of creepy.

I added a little sparkle to the web with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen - lots of sparkle, no mess.  The layout is from the fabulously talented Sankari Wegman.




Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
