31 Days of Halloween - Day 14, a KiLLer SWARM!

Beware the KiLLeR SWARM!!

Welcome to Day 14 of the 31 Days of Halloween Hop!
Becky here today to share a card I made using the digi-stamp set from Smeared Ink, "Queen"...
First I cut a 6x6 card out of white card stock & inked the edges with Walnut Paris Ink. Then I ran a piece of black Co'ordinations cardstock through the Cuddlebug with the Honeycomb embossing folder; sprayed it with some Cherry Red Dylusions Spray Ink. When it was dry, I adhered it to my card & then dripped red india ink here & there & let that dry.
Next I sprayed the Queen Bee Digi-stamp sheet with Lemon Zest & Squeezed Orange Dylusions Spray Inks & cut the bees out when it was dry. I then adhered them to the card, popping a few. Then I laid out "Killer Swarm" with some Glitz tiny alphabet letters!

Hope you have a great week!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
