The Ghost of Birdie Up

Hi followers and friends.  Just a quick post on this lovely Saturday evening.  I have been working on a little something for the Cheery Lynn Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes.  Not much to start with there but luckily I had a delivery of some of their new dies a couple of days ago and it also fitted nicely with the Stampoutique Challenge of purple, orange and yellow.  So I got to thinking of Halloween, a favourite of mine, and since it was the brand new Spider Web Mesh Border that had landed in the mail box I thought yeah, why not, lets pimp a pumpkin.

I started with the large pumpkin carriage from Tando Creative

Here's my pimped up, or maybe that should be Blinged up version.  I painted the pumpkin orange and then used glitter glue all over and stuck on my Cheery Lynn Spider Web Mesh Border which I cut from purple glitter paper.  The top is green glitter paper, the wheels black glitter paper with a gold mirror center cut with Cheery Lynn's Dreamcatcher #2.  Goes nicely with the whole fairy tale look.  The spring is also gold mirror card.  Bling.

Inside the coach, well, I told them it was a masked ball so they all decided to come as ghosts.  Their masks leave a little to be desired but they are keen and eager to PARTY.  It's three birdies from Stampoutique's Birdie Up stamp.  The effect behind is PaperArtsy Limelight fresco paint on gold embossed rays.  Isn't that spider web fanatstic!
