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 Gill Wilson:
Well its day 22 of the Smeared and Smudges Halloween event and I for this project used the Dreamweaver Stencil Tree Silhouette (LJ849), a haunted house design from Circuit, and the background is made using 2 different Stampendous stamp sets.
I started out by completing the Tree silhouette panel, I embossed some grey co-ordination card stock using my Big Shot machine, which I sanded back and then dragged a silver and then a gold ink pad over the top.
The background was created by simply repeating 2 stamped images covering the entire piece, the edges were distressed with a distress ink pad.
The final piece the haunted house was from Autumn Celebrations Cricut Cartridge and was cut at 5''.
The card was then put together, and I think it picks up the essence of Halloween.
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! So, leave your comment below before heading over the Smeared and Smudged blog to view all of the other creepiness!
