Hiya, oooooh it's proper cold here today, hope you're all keeping warm! That dreaded Mr Cold&Flu has invited himself to stay at mine - 2 of my boys, my daughter and myself all full of it! Oh well, i'm sure we''ll soon be rid of him!! Anyways, today's post is my first ever ATC! It's defo not as easy as it looks.......i wasn't sure if the idea was to keep them as flat as possible or not? Oh well - here goes........first i cut 100's (yes 100's! )of strands of grey embroidery thread to make the cobweb.....i just twisted the strands a bit to make them look a bit tatty and stuck them criss cross fashion across the ATC. The tombstone is cut using a sizzix die, i've coloured it with promarkers and creased it a bit to make it look a bit tatty, RIP was also cut using a sizzix alphabet, the mummy is a dig image from squiggle stamps and is coloured with promarkers. Hope you like it - let me know what you think and don't forget i have candy (see sidebar)!!
