31 Days of Halloween with Smeared and Smudged - Day Twenty-Five


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 Pam Hornschu:

Today's card features the large Tapestry/Damask stencil machine-embossed on Core'dinations cardstock, and sanded to reveal the gray core as the base. The large focal panel is the Mirror Mirror image from Stampendous, stamped in black on white cardstock, and ink and edge distressed. The center of the mirror is the witch profile, but just to channel my inner Disney Haunted Mansion leanings, I embossed in white the Dreamweaver Cameo on Core'dinations vellum, framed in black, and popped up over the top. If you look carefully, you'll see the pretty cameo profile, with the witch silhouette underneath. Bwahahahahaha. To add to the ambiance, the Dreamweaver Bats and the Raven were cut from paper stamped in black using the Stampendous Ornate Border. More ink-distressing, and red rhinestones, a strip of May Arts Chevron ribbon, and the card had the eerie feel that I was aiming for.

Congratulations to this week's winners!
Last night I went to a card making demo at the craft store, to sell us the machines.
From hopping around here I knew all the best questions to ask and was even able to offer suggestions.
My favorite part of this is the frame and faded witchy image.
