I had fun putting together this project for ScraPerfect. I don't often duplicate posts, but I really loved these new Tim Holtz products and jumped at the chance to use them as soon as they arrived in the mail.
To make this project you'll need:
- Background: Adirondack Alcohol Ink Surfaces, Distress Ink, Distress Oxide Ink, craft mat, heat gun, spray water bottle, black Archival ink, Stampers Anonymous Skulls & Cobwebs
- Embellishments: Idea-ology Halloween ephemera pack, Halloween Trimmings, Mini Pumpkins, Typography, Trinket Pin, Clipboard Clips
- Vintage book cover
I started with a piece of matte Adirondack Alcohol Ink Surface paper and a handful of Distress and Distress Oxide inks. I smeared the inks on my craft mat, spritzed with water and dragged the paper through the ink. After repeating this several times, I used a blending tool to fill in areas and add a bit more color. Once I was happy with the background I stamped his new cobweb stamp on top using the Tonic stamp platform and black archival ink. Super easy to use and no rummaging for my blocks!
I chose this vintage book cover for it's color. It matches well with the Cracked Pistachio ink I used. After adhering the paper to the book using The Best Glue Ever, I added my embellishments, twine, and the clipboard clip on top.
