Halloween ATC

Hi Friends:  I created an ATC for Halloween - it was lots of fun to get out my sprays and pastes and make this little gem.  Please see below for photos, process, challenges, and supplies.  Have a super scary day!

I recycled a piece of cardboard packaging for my ATC and prepped it with black gesso.  I don't have a spider web stencil, so I used the Treads stencil from Tim Holtz because it looked almost web-like, and added texture using black molding paste.  Once dry, I added some cheesecloth, then sprayed the ATC with the LSG purple spray, then added the spider glitter tape and the spider adornment.  I added the moon in the top right corner using a Halloween themed sticky rub-on and orange glitter.  I cut the skeleton picture from the Midnight Magic paper pad, and added it to the ATC.  I covered the skeleton with crackle paint  and crazing medium to get it to look like old, cracked picture glass.  I added the glitter frame over the picture, then toned down the bright silver by painting it with the black LSG spray.  I finished off the ATC with the transparency "boo" tag attached with a purple brad.
