I wanted it to look like the interior of a cave and used the sky colors from the FYI photo below. To make the colors look "sketchy" I used Q tips with my Distress Inks. I used my usual blending foam to ink the edges of the "cave" a misty white.
The Lawnscaping challenge is about embossing and the CAS-ual Friday challenge is paper-piecing a fall-themed card. All the white is heat embossing... I just love that spider! Sold me on the whole set. ;) All the bats were paper-pieced into the cave scene. Googly eyes work irresistibly well with Lawn Fawn stamps!
The window (which works perfectly for this week's Wonderful Windows at Our Creative Corner) was created by cutting around the spiderwebs with a craft knife and slipping a Spellbinders die in. THIS IS NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED!! I had to curve the die in a scary manner to slip it in and again when slipping it out! It seems not to have affected the die... Phew! It was still a heart-stopping couple of moments in my history of paper-crafting. ;)
