I used one of Gina's new Stand Up Sentiments for this spooky project! I painted the word and the base with black acrylic paint. Once that was dry, I applied several different colors of Stickles/glitter glue.

The ghost and pumpkins were all made with the Creative Paperclay! This was the first time I used this product and it was very easy to work with. This is an air-drying product so no need for a special oven. The eyes on the ghost are two brads. The pumpkins are all different shapes and sizes. Once I had the shape, I used my craft knife to make the groves in the pumpkins. The end of a paint brush was used to make the hole on the top to insert the stems into. When the pumpkins and stems were completely dry, I used Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, and Pumpkin Pie inks on the pumpkins and Walnut Stain, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, and Bundled Sage on the stems.

The chipboard ghost and web were painted with white acrylic paint. Black glitter was used on the spider. Black Soot and Walnut Stain was used on the hat and the bats. The lines on the hat were made by a very special tool - the pencil :)  I placed red paper on the back of the bats to give them a more creepy look.
