Simon Says Compendium Challenge!

Well what do you know, Both Compendium of Curiosities and Simon Says Stamp'n'Show are to do with 'Masking' this week.
So i opened my Tim book to page 60 and had a play.
I decided on the web mask as i just love how it looks, I then stamped the matching webs over the top
I threaded some glittery cotton to add some dimension to the web and attached a little silver spider charm, {of which I just snipped off the ring and filed the edges}
The phrase is Utee poured onto a craft sheet from the meltpot and stamped into. I attached it with matt accents. I added some sari ribbon to finish.
***
This actually wasn't the first piece i did for the challenge, i started a canvas but i'm not quite ready to share it yet, maybe later in the week if i'm feeling brave.
See you tomorrow for a spot of desk surfing.

I love the sentiment that you used to go along with the theme of your tag! Way cool!

Linda Ledbetter said...

What a great sentiment to use for that awesomely cool, masked spider web! It's a dream catcher! SO brilliant, Minxy, and the cotton threads really like like the silky threads of a web. The stamped UTEE is amazing, too. This is just amazing and so clever-- I absolutely love it!
