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


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:

I'm finishing up this month long Halloween celebration by going out in a box...a Cosmo Cricket Blackboard Photo Box, that is. No photos in this one, just some fun Halloween cards from this past month. Each have been designed to fit this box so that a spooky portion of the design shows through the window.

I paste-embossed in Matte Black the Dreamweaver Stone Wall over the box and lid, breaking it up a bit as I went, and smearing extra paste around the edges. When dry, I brushed on some Metallic F/X powders and white ink to highlight the stones. I also paste-embossed the Romantic Rose so that it trailed up the sides of the stone wall. When dry, I ink-stenciled color from the Tsukineko Splendor pad.

A stamped and cut out set of headstones from the Stampendous Tomb Elements was adhered with 3D foam tape.

Great box! I love the selectively colored elements and the little window to see the cards inside!

That is very cool. I love the box and the designs that allow you to see bits through the window are fantastic. Cards in a box make a great gift but this is just stunning. I love the combination of scary motifs and bright colours. Love it lots. Hugz
