Happy Thursday!!!

Hello everyone!! We are having a cool, overcast day today which put me in the mood for Halloween. I also received some Rubbernecker Halloween sets in tha mail this week so what's a girl to do but play!!!
The Ways to Use it Challenge on Splitcoast today was to use numbers on a project. To create the background, first the moon was masked, then the background was sponged with Ranger Dusty Concord and spritzed with a combo of Perfect Pearls and water and dried with the heat tool. The masking tape was removed and the moon was sponged with Summer Sun. The images from Rubbernecker's Halloween set 1 #473 were stamped with Ranger Black Soot and embossed with clear ep. Sewing, distressing, the Chatter Box numbers, and May Arts ribbon finish it off.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Halloween Set 1
Paper: White, Black, Elegant Eggplant, Occasions All dp
Ink: Ranger Black Soot and Dusty Concord, Summer Sun
Accessories: Perfect Pearls, Chatter Box Numbers, May Arts Ribbon, Nestabilities, Clear EP, Sewing Machine, Silver Cording
The Tuesday's Color Challenge colors on Splitcoast Tuesday were Pretty in Pink, Soft Suede, and Whisper White.
I was really excited Tuesday because I went with the Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge gang to Mississippi...whoohoo!!! We were invited by the Jellystone Park folks to have a pic-a-nic but there was a problem. Barney the bear refused to come out of the picnic basket...never fear, Mudder...I brought the tea!!! Sure hope they solved that little problem cause when teapotters get hungry, they get a little cranky!!! Especially some people, who will remain nameless, start throwing things....jezzzzz!!!

Images from Clear Dollar Stamps Tea-rrific set were stamped with Versamark onto white cs, embossed with clear ep, and sponged with Soft Suede and Pretty in Pink. A mix of Perfect Pearls and water was sprayed over the image and dried with the heat tool. Distressing and sewing was done around the edges and the main image was layered over the spellbinders medallion. This is also for the Crazy 4 Challenge sketch .
