for my giveaway please scroll down to the next post!!!!  hello, and good morning!!!! yea it's a smeared ink blog hop! if you do not know about smeared ink, then please click the link and check them out! there is an awesome group of wonderful stampers over there and we would love for you to join us! something i have learned from this project is not to make it shiny before taking the picture.

i could not make this picture work. i'm so sorry but these two pictures are the best i could get. anyway, i started off with a foam ball, which i painted black. then i took orange tissue paper (by the way, the theme of the hop is orange) and covered the ball (i love elmer's glue). i added the spider from smeared inks' killer bo peep, and a skull and ink blot are from stampitcrazy. then i covered it in gloss. it looks really cool in person though. i can't wait to put it on my tree!

i just thought this picture turned out cool, i'm not sure how i did it, but i like it. if you go down to the next post, you can enter in my giveaway. now get to hopping!!!! enjoy! lisa

Awesome idea! You must take pics of your halloween tree once decorated! I love the brilliance of the orange you used. Did you stamp the images on the paper before or after applying the paper to the ball? I may have to give this a shot!
