October at The Paper Mixing Bowl

It seems to have been a long month for me!  But I should be putting up more on my blog in the near future.  I seem to be keeping up with school, life, scrappy things and even had the time to catch a cold.  I'm a great multitasker!  Here is the October Recipe Card for October's Paper Mixing Bowl Challenge.

Here's my take on the recipe.  I didn't use much orange.  One of the gears is orange, so orange is included.  

I did fussy cut the skeleton, my pretty little zombie and my version of the deaths head moth.  Thanks to "Reneabouquets" at my kit club for showing her glittered edges.  I used this on my moth to give the wings a bit of emphasis.  I used embossing powder on the wings.  The moth it's self covers two utensils, it was fussy cut and disguised with paint and embossing powder.  I caught the whole lay out in a web, with the inked and tattered gauze.

I tried to stamp on some bats, but wound up painting them out.  They just didn't look right.

Here is a closer look at my zombie.  The husband said that my zombie looked fake.  I told him that I worked hard on my zombie!  I even steampunked her up a bit for this challenge.  Yes, that is a drop of ink on the wing of the moth.  I forgot to photoshop that one out of the picture.  

The little skull sticker conceals my journaling.  I journaled my Halloween secret in a scroll.  The scroll is the next picture down. I cut up rub-on words and some stickers to do the journaling.  I wanted to give it that Ransom note effect.

 Thanks for taking a look! Stop by The Paper Mixing Bowl and play along!  Have a great Halloween!
