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


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 Alison.

I started off with the Bats stencil and used the Double Glitter technique. I wrote about this on my personal blog a couple of days ago. This is a fun, beautiful technique that I love to do.

I also inked up the Damask stencil, as it works so well with creepy Halloween projects. On top of the Damask portion, I added an acetate frame. Look at all of that glitter!

I made this card in about 15 minutes, though it looks like it may have taken a lot longer. I hope you'll try the Double Glitter technique!

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 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!

There is that versatile and beautiful damask stencil again!
It does look like you put a lot more time into this. Nothing quick, simple or easy about your results.

The double glitter technique is fun, just don't forget to soap the back of the stencil like I did! Love the layering and distressed sentiment.
