31 Days of Halloween with Smeared and Smudged-Day Fifteen

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:


It's another Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween card and I love how this one turned out.  It's pretty much exactly what I pictured in my head when I started this project.  I'm so glad the Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team decided to play along this year!  Here's my project for today:



Here's what I used to create this project:

Copic® Markers (YG93, 95, 97, 99; Y11, 17; C3, 4, 6)
Basic Black Cardstock
Christmas Red Stickles™
1 1/4" Circle Punch by EK Success®
1" Circle Punch by EK Success®
Tombow™ Mono Adhesive - Removable

Here's what I did to create this project:

First I penciled in my hills just to give reference points and I stamped the tree.
•Next I drew the tombstones, stamped the witch and the two smaller bats.
•I then taped on the bats stencil and inked the one bat with a sponge.
•Punched out two circles, one of each size.
•I colored in the grassy hills and tombstones then masked them off, I also masked the area for the moon with the larger circle.
•Using the grays, I airbrushed the sky and then removed the masks
•I colored in the moon.
•Next I die cut my tree and adhered it on the card front.
•I stamped the spider.
•Stickles™ were added to the bats for eyes.
•I created my card base and adhered the card front to the base.
•I colored some white scraps with the green and trimmed a few pieces of grass and adhered them.
•I colored another piece of white with a green marker, stamped my sentiment and adhered it to a scrap of black cardstock that I then trimmed and adhered.


The Smeared and Smudged site is offering prizes each day of the month by a long list of sponsors...Dreamweaver being one of them, but we are also offering one stencil (our choice) to one lucky commenter on the Dream It Up! blog each day of the month!
