Itsy bitsy spider

Hello everyone,

and happy Wednesday ! Today, a new challenge starts over at the Stampotique Designers's challenge blog. It's #257 and the theme is 'Put a bug on it'. We would love it if you played along with us but before you do make sure to read the rules on the SDC blog.
Here's my mini art journal.

For these pages I used a  6 x 6 gelli plate to print both sides. I started with the orange base and then overprinted the left with pink and the right with blue. I added some texture to the plate before printing. 
Next I used some background stamps, some with Archival ink in the same sort of colours. I also stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with WOW fine white embossing powder. 
The sentiment was stamped straight on the page with alphabet stamps and doodled around with a white paint pen. I used the same paint pen to add some splattering. 
Spider girl was stamped on the page and on white cardstock. I coloured her, cut her out and then restamped her a third time on post it paper. I stuck the post it paper on some polka dotted pattern paper and cut out the dress which I then adhered on top of the coloured girl; I did add some shading to her little dress. The whole thing was then glued on top of the stamped image on the page. 
A line around the pages finished it off. 

I used the following stamps:
