Itsy Bitsy Spider...

The challenge this time at 613 Ave C is ATG with an option of Shabby Chic.  Distressed edges, burlap and a take on Art Deco = my version of Shabby Chic. What is fun is the twist of the image - a beautiful witch playing with her pet spider.  A big thank you to  Poppyseed Graphics for providing me this image.
There are some incredible paper artists on 613... I encourage you to hit the link and check out the DT's work!  And then let's see your take on Shabby Chic - or if you rather - ATG!

  • "Itsy Bitsy Spider" was provided by Poppyseed Graphics and can be found HERE in their store.
  • The focal image was colored with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted'.  The layers were both glued & elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image & the base card.
  • DP & black matting are from stash.
  • Base card fold is a reverse Easel.

  • The flowers are from The Paper Studio.
  • "Antique Linen" Distress Ink used to distress all the edges of the DP.
  • Distress Inks Wild Honey, Scattered Straw, Squeezed Lemon & Rusty Hinge used on a craft sheet & sprayed with water to create the circle background behind the witch.
  • Images were printed on an 
  • Epson WF-3520 printer
