Sketch Saturday (125) - Sketch

If you look very carefully you will find that I h
ave, in fact, followed the sketch after flipping it over first. I started by covering the blue base card with spidery paper. I then stamped a spider's web in the corner to replace one of the squares on the sketch. The other square has been replaced with the witches broomstick which I made with raffia and a cocktail stick, and finally the sentiment made from peel-offs. I coloured the main image with Promarkers and chalk to give it a vintage feel. I again stamped a cobweb and a spider at the top of the image. I used diamond glaze on the spider's eyes and distressed the edges before layering it onto some orange card. Next I stamped a cat onto black card and cut out before attaching with foam pads, equally the two skulls. I am rather pleased with this one so I hope you like it too, thanks for looking.
