Acetate ATC

I created this creepy fun ATC with rubber stamps. The skull is from the Edgar Allan Poe collection by Smeared Ink. The spider web is from Hampton Art. I stamped the skull on a piece of acetate and then layered that on top of a flowered print cut from a magazine. To add some additional color, I stenciled squares with pink.

I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:

Smudgy Antics - no markers
Charisma Cardz (10) - use acetate
Haunted Design House - bare bones (CAS)
Left of Center - alternative art
Challenge 4 Everybody - #17 anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Paper Make-up - #82 anything goes
Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes
613 Avenue - flowers
