TH Spider Cobweb Card

Happy Halloween to everyone that celebrates & here's hoping all the trick or treaters have fun trick or treating for candy.

Hubby carved the 2014 pumpkin, Captain Jack's Black Pearl Pirate Ship, for this year.  He carved it using a tall black styrofoam pumpkin I bought at Target. Michaels only had small black pumpkins. Where the red is on outer of ship he shaved the pumpkin just enough so the battery light could show through.

Created this Tag mostly with Tim Holtz products. Used colors: black, orange, purple & white.

Stamped the TH Cobweb w/ Spider multiple times for the layers and cut with the TH dies.

Had fun distressing this: hand tearing the edges of the white core'dinations cardstock that has orange core base, used TH alcohol inks to splatter orange & purple & used TH distress inks.
