Oh yes Oh yes..... OH YES! If there was ever a design team for me.... this has to be it! and here i am on MACABRE MONDAYS 1st DT....THANK YOU BARB for asking me.... i am honoured, honest i am.
So on to this weeks challenge which is APPALLING ARACHNIDS.
Personally i love spiders.... and wont let anyone squish 'em at my house.... and what could be more beautiful than a spiders web with dew on, in the 1st light of morning?
I have altered a tiny tin using alcohol inks and a wonderful spider stamp from SMEARED INK its from their 'Killer bo peep' set.

The tin was coloured, then i stamped and heat embossed the spider..............................
then i coloured the spider with alcohol ink........... 3x coats of vanish to seal it, then what to put in it?

What could be better than spider earrings?

I love making my own jewelry i made these earrings, using black chains, purple beads, tibetan silver beads and spider charms.
I tore some purple crepe paper to put inside the tin to protect them and thats it...job done.
Come and play along with us this week at MACABRE MONDAYS..... the MINIONS and Barb our MASTER are super talented, check 'em out!

I shall also enter my tin for the SMEARED INK CHALLENGE this week.... which is to use any of their stamps to make anything you want....... the dead-line for submission is wednesday and voting is usually thursday and fridays..... please go over and vote..... i'd like your vote but there might be something much better than mine so vote for that...... we would all really apprieciate being voted for.
Thanks for visiting me today...... love lynx
