31 Days of Halloween with Smeared and Smudged-Day Ten

The Dream Team are dipping their fingers into all things spooky, creepy, and scary, as we play along with the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. The team will be taking turns to fill the quota of 31 days on the Dream It Up! blog, and posting on their own blogs as well. Be sure to leave them lots of love as this is truly a challenge for many of them! Here is today's post from Lea Kimmel:


Here's what I used to create this card:

Dreamweaver Stencils Leafless Tree Die
Stampendous® Lady and Jack, Boss Gloss Embossing Ink, Detail Black Embossing Powder, Micro Glitter, Color Fragments
Copic® Marker T8
BasicGrey® Eerie Paper Pad
Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
transparency film
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon® Adhesives
Glue Dots® - Small

Here's what I did to create this card:

Trim transparency to desired size, stamp image with embossing ink, add powder, remove excess powder and heat.
Once cooled, add glue to jack-o-lantern and apply orange micro glitter.
Add glue to witches dress as shown and apply lime micro glitter, set aside to allow glue to dry.
Create A-2 card base with a tent fold from purple cardstock.
Trim patterned paper to fit card base with a small edge of purple showing.
Adhere patterned paper to card base.
Take embossed transparency piece and flip over so embossed and glittered side is down and adhere to card base with glue dots, this allows the image to show completely with the glitter showing through.
With black cardstock, die cut the tree and then cut branches off to adhere to card as shown.
Airbrush rose fragments with gray marker, mix with purple fragments and apply to bottom of card with glue.
