Halloween Mouse Trap


Halloween is this weeks theme at Out of a Hat Creations, so I decided to have a go at decorating another mouse trap.  After sanding and giving it a coat of gesso I painted it with sunset orange acrylic dabber.  I stamped the skull and the web in black stazon from the new mini blueprint T!m Holtz plate.  I went over them with black enamel accents.  Once dry added a couple of charms and crystals for the eyes.

Have to admit, that I dont like the thought of using a device to kill something in craft BUT I do like the artwork people create on them - and I really like the decorating/artwork youve done.
