Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas - Day Five

Day Five of S&S 12 Days of Creepmas!

I used a digital stamp called Creepmas Bones by Rick St. Dennis for this banner. The banner is created from a page torn from a damaged book. I randomly painted on some gesso and then did some stenciling with yellow paint. A recycled paint sample is the design paper. The banner is embellished with glitter, a skeleton's arm, spider web and a bow. 

Some of you have been asking to see the finished banner. Here it is. Day one thru five of the Hop banners and some skellies in scarves to make it pop! 

The blog roll is on the sidebar. The next stop on the Creepmas list is Lisa.
