Witchy Mask

Studio L3     GM22-A TimHoltzian Halloween
Quirky Crafts Challenge     Challenge #21-Something Spooky or Recipe-Black-Gold + Glitter

Linda Ledbetter is back from her wonderful cruise with Tim Holtz and Gang. We hear she had an exciting time and since she's home we're all ready to get back to Grungy Monday, and since we're doing Spooky I thought I would pair this card with the challenge at Quirky Crafts Challenge--more Spooky--that's what October is all about.
I pulled out my Tim Holtz masks and Texture Fades embossing folder for this spooky creation. I already had some Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink mixed up with Perfect Pearl-Pearl for a sparkly spray. I used a piece of Pick You Poison designer paper, embossed the tree, and sponged some Soft Suede ink over it to bring it up. I laid on the pumpkin mask and spritzed with the spray, let dry, peeled off the mask, then laid the witch mask in the sky and sponged around with Soot Distress ink being careful not to get on the pumpkin, was going for a spooky sky effect. I had the little bats left over from another project, they come out of the bat border punch I have. I stamped the sentiment on Peach Parfait card stock, cut it out, sponged around the edges with Soot ink, and raised it with SU dimensionals and last but not least I ruffed up the edges with Tim's distressing tool. 
While you're here I'll give you a link to Tim's web site and you can look at some of his newest products and projects, he's got some yummy new stuff.
