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


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:




The products I used:-
Dark Blue card, White Core'dinations card, Dreamweaver Stencil LL3015Black matte embossing pasteStampendous stamps CRP166 and CRR131, Black Stazon ink pad.


Here is what I did:-

1  The outer frame was stamped using the Raven stamp and the aperture cut out.
2  The background behind the frame was stamped on to the co-ordinations white card using the Black Stazon.
3  The acetate window behind the frame was done with the stencil and then black matte paste applied over this and it was left to completely dry overnight.
4  The layers were distressed and the card put together.
