This is how I did it:
I had gotten this booklet of templates as a freebie with a magazine several years ago but had not really used it much - so I got it out and use the cat. I positioned the template over the white card scrap and swiped the Versamark ink pad over the shape. After carefully lifting the template off, I filled in any sections not clear with the Versamark pen - SU have one that has a brush end like their markers so it is easy to use in this situation.
I then sprinkled it with my ebony Embossing powder - from the Creative Stamp Collection. The powder comes in bags and I transferred it to this little glass jam jar to keep. Once I applied the powder I heated it up and it got that lovely sparkle.
I thought I did a good job of the shape but decided to fussy cut it out anyway and put it onto a piece of card that I had run through a Tim Holtz embossing folder of cracked ice/glass which I had torn the edges of to create a distressed look. I should have rubbed ink on it at this stage but didn't.
I used a piece of SU Designer paper behind it from a set called Howlstooth and Scaringbone - isn't that a delicious name? All of that was then put onto a black card base. I used some sticker to create the sentiment.
After adding the spider and the web (stickers) I took it outside to photograph in the Spring sun and got this lovely sparkle going!
I will enter this in Through the Craftroom Door again.
