a late entry for Halloween!

hey there crafty friends
, well Halloween has been and gone
 and with all the current workmen chaos.
.i haven't had time to stop by blogs or to post this so sorry!
and thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to stop by here..
so my last Halloween make for the year..another tag:
i started with a fab Tim tissue technique..and covered with
pearl and silver paint dabbers..
i dried and over stamped with cobwebs
and edged with black paint dabber..
i added this fab skull image,
some barbed wire stamped and twisted wire..
a few staples..for good measure..
oh and some fab tinsel
