"MASKING" for Halloween!

WOO HOO - I get to host this week at Our Creative Corner and I have a FAB challenge planned for you! 

In the "spirit" AND theme of Halloween, we will be using the MASKING technique! HERE is a wonderful link for some inspiration. Show us your scariest creation using this technique!

Here is my design team card. I'm sorry about the photography, but for some reason the background looks brown and not the black it really is. I tried to adjust it MANY times, sigh.......
I chose a piece of text paper in black and white because text takes masking and wet embossing so well.  I chose a creepy sentiment stamp and embossed it in cricket green.  I cut out a piece of paper to make my own mask to cover the sentiment and then placed the Studio Calico graph mask over that.  I sponged the Black Soot distress ink over the graph, removed both masks, and voila!  I got a nice, clean sentiment that looked like it was floating on top of a spider web!  Of course I had to add the spider for effect!

Next, I embossed the street lamp in black and finished off with some wonky black stitching.  I love how it came out and in real life looks much better in black than brown!

Please drop by Our Creative Corner and join in on our challenge.  I promise you'll have fun with this technique!  Also, check out the awesome projects from the FAB design team - they are amazing!
