Guest Designer at Try it On Tuesday - Halloween


Today I am honoured to be Guest Designer at Try it on Tuesday!  The theme is Halloween. 

The fabulous Design Team at TIOT make wonderful mixed media projects, and this inspired me to get my pinny on and get messy. First I got playing with alcohol inks and made lots of backgrounds (expect to see them cropping up over the next few months!) This one was the one I thought was spookiest. 

The carved pumpkin was cut on the Silhouette electronic cutter.  I embossed it with an embossing folder and added wax. The sentiment is Clearly Besotted. 

Thank you Try It On Tuesday - it's great to join you for this challenge!
