Halloween Hanging Decoration

There is a new challenge today at Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog, and the theme to play along with this week is a spooky "Halloween".  I've made a little hanging decoration shaped like a cobweb and covered in black glitter.  I cut out a cobweb shape (using a traditional paper snowflake technique) and coloured it with black copics (the wide end).  I then covered it in glue stick, and sprinkled it with black glitter.  This was a HUGE mistake as there is now black glitter all over my cutting mat, dining room table, in my pockets !!!

I'm still finding sparkles in the carpet (even though I've hoovered umpteen times).  I'm going to be sticking to Stickles in future, I can't cope with this loose glitter !!!  I even used a bit of newspaper as a "sprinkle mat" so I could 'fold' up the excess and scoop it back into the pot, but still it got everywhere.  It is as though I sneezed and it went 'poof' and sparkles went everywhere.

Card Recipe:
Please pop on over to the Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.

Don't forget to pop over to the Stamp Fairy shop too, where you can browse the cute images created by the wonderful Gerda.

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.
