31 Days of Halloween - Day 20

Hello blogging peeps, welcome to today’s offering in the Smeared Ink 31 days of Halloween Blog Challenge.  If all has gone well, you've arrived from Sarah’s blog - but  if you've wandered in halfway through the proceedings the blog roll is over there on the right so you can get yourself pointing the right way.

Today is Tuesday, which is the day I share a tutorial on my YouTube channel – and also simul-blog with my goody-goody other self on Tuppence Coloured
Today I made this Explosion box.

The tutorial is here.

If you’re eagle-eyed, you might have spotted that I got stuck the DSP down with the lines up and down for two of the panels and side to side for the others...It’s a design choice, but after I filmed it the pattern was making my brain unhappy so I went in with some lighter fluid (US crafters can get something called Un-Du, but we Brits can’t get it over here) and un-stuck the offending panels so I could put them back the right way.  I felt better after that.

Confession is good for the soul!

I'll be back tomorrow, but meanwhile. please move along on to Lisa F’s blog

Crafty hugs.

I love this video and your box is fabulous. so I am wondering the spider web is in two parts if you cut part free...is this a die you sell?
