Spooky Spider Web and a Frightfully Fantastic Sale at Taylored Expressions

With Halloween just around the corner I thought I'd crank out one more spooky card using my Spooky Expressions from Taylored Expressions along with the Halloween Key Ingredients.
Believe it or not, I whipped up this card in about 30 minutes...that's got to be a record for me! I used Taylor's sketch challenge, TESC88, for the layout.

I started by stamping the spider with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White then I masked the center of his body to avoid having any of the spider web lines going through the orange part, then I stamped the spider web. The image is cut out with Circle Nestabilities and layered onto Prism Intense Orange and Prism Black (both from the Halloween KI). I coloured the spider's body with my YR14 copic marker. I wanted the spider to stand out from the web so I traced over him with my black Glaze pen...once that was dry I added a layer with my clear Glaze pen for more gloss and dimension. Glaze pen tip: I find that the ink flows better if I hold my Glaze pen upright instead of on an angle, and I move the pen very slowly for best coverage.

I used my MS spider web punch on some black and layered that behind the fun bat print patterned paper (Basic Grey Eerie from the Halloween KI). The awesome Halloween brads and the skull button are also from the Halloween KI.

There's a big Fright Night Special over at Taylored Expressions, on now through Sunday, October 25th! All Halloween stamp sets and the Halloween Key Ingredients are on sale for 20% off!!!
Don't miss this chance to pick up these frightfully sweet stamp sets.
