Alphabet Page 'S'


I've ended up with 2 pages for the letter 's'!!!  The snowflakes are stamped and heat embossed with white opaque embossing powder.  The background is a mixture of faded jeans and broken china distress inks and denim adirondack ink.  The 3d snowflakes were cut on the cricut and covered with silver and turquoise stickles.  The letters were cut from the hippy chick alphabet plate.


The background is spiced marmalade distress ink with water spritzed on whilst still wet and blotted off with kitchen paper.  The outside edge stamp is from a green pepper plate, as are the skull and hat.  They were stamped onto white card and cut out.  The hat was stamped again, the ribbon, feather and safety pin added to it and it was layered onto of the first using silicone to give it some depth.  Large clear gems were used for the eyes.  A web and a few spiders were stamped from the Lavinia range in black soot distress ink, as was the letter 's'.  I distressed the outside edges with a paper distresser and inked with black soot. So I guess this 's' can be for spooky, skull and spiders.

Susan, thanks for your comment, I've now linked the 2nd page up to the Haunted Design House Challenge which this week is Elegantly Evil.  No sure it's elegant, but there you go!!!!

I'm loving your dapper skeleton in his topper, Sam :-) And that flame stamp makes a fab border. I can't get my head around snowflakes just yet LOL.

Both pages are great but I do love the skeleton one - and I am not someone who does Halloween as a festival. It is absolutely brilliant.

Oh, didn't realise the snowflakes were on the same post - I like the skull best.
