Another Halloween Swap

Once a month I do an ATC swap with a friend. I try to make it as appropriate to the month as possible, so of course next week is Halloween need I say more. I stole the twisted wire technique from Sue Roddis, she used this technique on an ATC she made for RSS challenge this month. The wire is fixed on to the card using the Tiny Attacher by Tim Holtz. The Distress crackle paint is again a Tim Holtz product. I went over the whole thing using Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint Distress inks. It doesn't show up on the photo but the inks soak into the cracks of the paint. Underneath the wire I had stamped a branch image and along the bottom edge a black cat. The numbers are from Tims Ideology, I coloured them with the alcohol inks and used brads to fix them on to the ATC.

I love doing ATC's but I always need one suggestion to set me off and Sue's wire idea which actually came from Tim Holtz was perfect.
