31 Days of Halloween with Smeared and Smudged-Day Seven

 
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 techniques I used were dry embossing for the spider then sanded back, simple stamping for the images. I coloured the Mr Skeleton in a soft lead pencil and the color with Souffle pen and Copic marker. The die was cut from black card, the edges of some panels were distressed.  I thought it was quite 'Halloweeny'.

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!
