Incy Wincy Spider

Simon went to a birthday party of one of his best friends today.  He gave him a remote control spider as a birthday present so I thought a spider birthday card would be cool.  I cut and layered three of this spider to give him some substance, double coated him with two coats of black embossing powder and UTEE to give him that extra glossiness.  However being all black he seemed a little dull, so I coated him with just a little silver embossing powder in the hope of marbling the finish.  It worked but I wanted more colour so I also added a little red embossing powder (every decent spider should have some red on him, don't you think) and then pushed the red embossing powder around by directing the heat from the heat gun and this was the result.

I wanted my spider to wiggle and jiggle so I added an acetate spring constructed from some old packaging, and placed him strategically on a dry embossed web.


so my little spider will be wiggling and jiggling over there !!!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Wow, Kate, what an amazing effect from the DP and UTEE ... this cool spider looks as though it's enamelled! It's sure to have gone down well with that fun gift! Hugs, Anita :)

  2. WOw! The spider is awesome. Glossy and smooth. Great card. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp Amnimal Magic Challenge. Gayatri xx

  3. Your spider looks amazing Kate! It looks like you've been inspired by a redback? Fab card!

    1. Of course it was inspired by a red back. I used to be so scared of them when I was growing up - mostly because of that song "There was a Redback on the Toilet Seat"


I'd love to hear from you !!!
