Spooky Top Tip Tuesday to you!

Good morning peeps!
Did you enjoy last weeks Top Tip Tuesday Challenge?
hope you joined in!  we had lots of lovely entries!
Soooo what’s the challenge this week at Top Tip Tuesday?
Let me tell you!
Its a Red Team challenge and the challenge is
Layer it up!
I have to say that I just have to play every week! thehehehee its to much fun not too!
just think of all the fun I would miss…..
This weeks Sponsors are:
 Stitchy Bear Stamps
The Image I am using is from Delicious Doodles and you can find that image at Stitchy Bear Stamps too!
Now those of you that know me well know I just
Distress inks
So when I saw the image It just Screamed out to me!
Distressed! Me!!
TTT - Layers

The purple back layer is core colour card and well just lets say its a colour that has been in the draw forever as its not a colour I like (cough pink!) But……….. with Dusty concord in one hand and my blending tool in the other it did not stand a chance!! haha! Now its purple!! YAY!
the second layer was a light orange… I ran that through the cuttlebug and then armed with spiced marmalade and dusty concord and a sanding block its transformed.
for the image I printed it and then made sure if was totally dry before adding several colours of ink blended on, then with my mini mister and some water and pearls I splattered the image and left to dry before roughing the edges and curling a couple of corners.
The Banner I have printed the text and cut and scored it to make a banner, inked in the same way as the image.
A brad, Pin and some ribbon and there you have it!
SPOOKY! thehehee
