To Fear or Not To Fear

For too long now I have been away from Frankie's Tag it on challenges at DragonsDream. I really ought to have been making a couple of boxes last night but wanted to play with some stamps I found in my collection the other day. This challenge was the ideal opportunity. The theme this last fortnight has been "Don't Fear".
A couple of other requirements - use purple, add texture and use a scary image. Of course the main requirement - at least one real stamp - not digi.
This is the tag I came up with
All the stamps are real. There's the tree stump from De Stempelwinkel stamped with brushed corduroy DI.
Spider's web, little spiders and tree line from Lavinia stamps using walnut and black DI, some skeletal trees from Elusive Designs in walnut DI. The big spider - I don't know the origin - but that was heat embossed in purple and cut out. Spiders web dry embossed in one corner. The BG - more distress inks. The words - more stamps this time from a couple of Studio G sets I have. A bit of web like mesh for the tie.
I would like to enter this into the challenge over at
DragonsDream Tag it on - this fortnight's "Don't Fear" challenge
