Day 11 Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween - Skullie Clothespin Book





I saw the idea for the clothespin book here. Check it out...there are so many different ways you could use this idea.

To prepare the clothespin, I first painted it white. I then applied some tacky glue to the area I wanted to add the Crayola Clay Magic. I let it set up briefly and then I rubber stamped into it with permanent ink and a clear stamp from Inkadinkado.

My message is from Smeared Ink. The sentiment and image are from the Death As Digital Stamp set.

I am entering this book in the following challenges:

Haunted Design House - #177 dimensional Halloween
Try it on Tuesday - texture
Addicted to Stamps & More (10) - #66 anything goes
Lady Anne's - #12 anything goes
