A is for...

Hi blog friends, and thank you for visiting my blog.  Today's offering is my contribution to the Craft Barn Alpha challenge, for which I am making a series of ATC's.  The latest letter for the challenge is "A" and I've chosen "Arachnid".


The ATC itself I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, then tinted with Distress Inks in Iced Spruce and Salty Ocean, with a  touch of Black Soot over the raised areas.  Then I lightly rubbed in a bit of Pearl Moon metallic gilding wax to highlight the web. 

The spider was cut with my Cameo and given a coat of Glossy Accents.  And then all I needed to do was to add in the definition and the job was finished!  Simples!

Crafty hugs,

Keren

This is so striking. I love the gilded embossed web with the gorgeous blue behind it. The spider looks real with the Glossy Accents. A wonderful atc.
