day 17 of 31 days of Halloween

Today I have gone back to what I love doing best, altering things I find in the house :D 

I have made a Halloween jar using an old Glass jar that was in my cupboard I remember buying a few of these a while ago really cheap. I covered with sides with some black pattered card stock, then on the front used some really cook netting sort of stuff, I got it from a shop in town for about 50p for a meter! the card on the front is an altered playing card, I covered it with black acrylic pant then stamped on the skull from smeared ink's quoth the raven stamp set I then embossed it with copper powder. When that was dry I stamped on the trick or treat and embossed that with Debbi Moore Metal magic embossing powder. 

I hope you like my offering for today, be sure to check back tomorrow for another fun project, ok then off you hop carry on along the list with is just there--------->>>>> or go to the start if you haven't been hopping along :)

Under the sea

I felt the need to get messy today and all the other projects I am working on are in different stages and all drying so I started something new, I wanted something that I could start and finish in one sitting. I decided on this mixed media banner. I have used various ephemera that I had which matched the under the sea theme and then I stamped up one of the stamps from Smeared Ink's Abyss rubber set. She has been coloured in with spectrum noir markers. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges: - Animal Instincts (lots of fishes)
