A Spooky clipboard with Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a"Spooky" project using the Small Regular Portrait Clipboard by Clear Scraps.  Stencils and chipboard images came in handy when the decorating began but first I needed to give them some character.

The "Spooky" word, the pumpkin and the spider needed some color.  First the pumpkin~

I used Distress Oxide inks when adding color, to the stencil, to get the shape of the pumpkin.  Water was sprayed, on the pumpkin carefully, to make the pumpkin looked aged and worn.  It was then cut out and stamped over the top, with a chicken wire stamp using black Archival ink and then set aside.

The "Spider" chipboard by Clear Scraps was stamped with Versa Mark and then embossed using black embossing powder.  Red rhinestones were added for the eyes.

The "Spooky" word was inked with black Archival ink and then Stickles/Rock Candy was applied randomly to the letters, giving a drippy letter effect.   The pattern paper was adhered to the clipboard and stenciled with different images and shapes.  Layers of paper and die cuts were tucked behind the pumpkin.  The "Spider" was adhered to the top of the pumpkin.  A straw, ribbon and a charm were added to finish the project.
