For my Day 3 Project I made a banner that says SPOOKY. I cut the triangles from chipboard and colored them with Tim Holtz Distress Stain. The I alternated stamping the Dylusions birds on each one. Finally, inked the edges. To make the circles I die cut two sizes of Sizzix circles in Halloween Papers from An Eerie Tale. To make the letters I painted them with black Gesso (they were zebra striped, I found them on clearance at Hobby Lobby) and then I covered them with Sparkle Mod Podge. I cut holes in the triangles and put black tulle through the holes to hang the banner. It was really fun and easy to make. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back tomorrow for Day 4!
 Here's a close-up. You can see how sparkly the letters are.
