31 Days of Halloween with Smeared and Smudged-Day 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 Alison:

Alison decided to use the Molten Metal technique along with the Owl on Oak stencil for this ATC she's created. She has cut the owl off of his oak branch that he was sitting on. She applied glossy black embossing paste to the owl, and then sprinkled our Metallic F/X powders on top of the paste while it was still wet. She heated the powders and the paste until it started to bubble. The end result is what you see here.

She also used our versatile Scales stencil on her background by spraying out Iridescent Memories Mist directly on to the stencil and then pressing it into her cardstock. She loves the shimmer and color-change of this particular Memories Mist color.

Alison's "Spooky" sentiment is from Inkadinkado, and she used a glittery embossing powder for it, as well as a UTEE powder for around the edge of her ATC. The funky "ribbon" is from May Arts.

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!

This is so cool! I love how that owl turned out, the metallic color is amazing. I'm going to have to add those powders to my wish list.

The blue behind the black really sets it off.
You've given the owl a more sinister liik somehow.
And it really looks like his head could turn!
