Here is my post for today:
Stazon Black Ink
Tombow Dual Marker #606
Water Brush
Prismacolor Pencils in Jasmine, White, Canary Yellow, Orange, Neon Orange, Pale Vermillion, Neon Green, and Marine Green
Core'dinations Card Stock
Black Embroidery Floss
Non Stick Craft Mat
Heat Gun
Craft Knife

1)  Stamp on the mixed media paper and let dry.
2)  Color the background using the Tombow Dual Markers and water brush.  Let dry.
3)  Color the pumpkin, moon and cat eyes with Prismacolor Pencils.
4)  Use the Craft Glue Dots to adhere to the orange card stock.

5)  Adhere Craft Glue Dots along the edge of the stamped image.  I found the easiest way to do this is to place the dispenser where you want the dot and wiggle it back and forth a couple of times before you remove it.  
6)  Count the dots you laid down in step 5.  This is how many "spiders" you need.
7)  Cut a 12" piece of the embroidery floss and remove 2 strands of the 6.

8)  Lay the floss on the craft sheet and place Mini Glue Dots over the top of the floss at about 1/2" intervals, starting about 1/4" from the end.
9)  Cover the first Glue Dot with a good deal of Aged Black Embossing Enamel.

10)  Press the embossing enamel into the Glue Dot.  Brush the excess down to the second dot.  Repeat until all the dots are covered in powder.

11)  Heat emboss the powder on the Glue Dots.

12)  Cut the embroidery floss between the Glue Dots.
13)  Using the craft knife, remove the "spiders" from the craft sheet and place carefully in the centers of the Craft Glue Dots.

14)  Use the craft knife to seperate the thread "legs" and press them into position on the larger Glue Dots.

15)  Cover the Glue Dots with Lime Micro Glitter, press in gently and brush off the excess.

16)  Use the craft knife to gently scrape off any glitter that may have stuck to the bodies of the spiders.

Don 't forget to comment on all the blogs.  Here are the posts for today:
