Transparent

I got a few minutes to actually play again and decided that pulling out the Viva Decor Crystal Gel and thinking Halloween (how could a person ever go wrong with Halloween?) would be a fabulous way to go.  I was not disappointed!

I had started out my glopping (isn't that a great technical word) some Crystal Gel on the bottom of a tag and letting it dry for some texture.  I then painted it first with brown and then, after it was dry, with green.  Originally I was going to have it be grass and place someone walking.  However, as I got ready to put things together I realized it would be a wonderful graveyard.  I used several different colors of in sponges on the top for the sky with a heavy layer of black on the edge and edging the sentiment.  The headstone and ghost are all made with Viva Decor Crystal Gel in a soft mold.  I painted them and then glued them down once they were dry.  I was going to do more to this, but everything else I started to add just seemed 'too much' so left it alone.
