Boo Banner

This was really fun to put together. Halloween is a great time for papercrafting, so many fun things you can do. I have seen lots of these little wall hangings and was inspired by Beate Johns nearly glowing skull on green patterned paper (which I can't seem to find again to link to). The skull image is embossed with black embossing powder and then Frost White Shimmer Paint is rubbed all over it, wiping off the excess. Basically an emboss resist technique. I used the faux distressed stickles  technique (mix Fine Cosmo glitter with Crystal Effects and apply to your surface-I use a toothpick- then let dry) to make the super glittery letters. The glitter doesn't get everywhere and it stays put! Then I used various punches to make the spider and bat embellies and stuck them on with dimensionals. Lots of faux stitching with a white gel pen and a Basic Black marker. Adhered the finished scalloped squares to the Black Striped grosgrain with Sticky Strip. I folded the top over and put a Corduroy Button through it. Tied a piece of Rope Twine through that so it has a hanging handle. Now to find a good place to hang this!
