A Skeleton ATC

Here's another Halloween ATC.  This one features my favorite Halloween character, the dancing skeleton wearing a top hat.  The skeleton and sentiment are from Red Lead's Story Stamp Set, A Halloween Tonic Story.



This skeleton is so scared he dropped his key!
I heat embossed the skeleton with Versamark and Ranger Seafoam White Embossing Powder.  I added a couple of orange gems from my stash. The skeleton key is an Industrial Chic charm. 

You might recognize the background ATC paper from a previous post.  If I have to get out the sprays, I use the finished product for more than one project.  On a neutral (manila) base, I sprayed three autumn colors using water misting and kitchen roll techniques. I used Dylusions Ink Spray in Fresh Lime and Squeezed Orange along with Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist in Autumn Leaf. 

I'm linking this ATC to

Crazy4Challenges:  #157 Halloween Favorite Character 

and sending it off to
the Unruly Paper Arts Yahoo Group for their Eerie ATC swap.
