Thursday's Dream Schemes: Week #2 of the Mystical and Magical Challenge

 Hop on board the Dream Team train as we journey through all things Mysterious and Magical through the month of October. Our guest "engineer" is Miss Eerie herself, Alison Heikkila. October promises to be a very bumpy ride...
Remember you could be the random winner if you join the challenge by linking up with the linky tool below.

I have to admit that I admire her ability to make it seem so effortless. As I look at my own "creepy" creations, they seem a bit tame. But that's what it's all about isn't it?...finding your creative tempo and doing what you do best and for me, I love admiring my  cohorts creations as well. Please take time at the end of my post to see what the Dream it UP team is doing this month too, and remember they could use a bit of TLC with your lovely comments. HERE if you are not sure how to post your creation to our challenge. If you don't have a blog but would like to join please email me a picture of your creation and I will post it here for you.

I am featuring "The Great Pumpkin" stencil today, but be sure to come back next week for another post or two to see another zentangle creation by Wayne.
The Great Pumpkin stencil LL3036

My thank you card today is a collaboration with Wayne, my co-creator, he is CZT and Zentangle comes easy to him. I then, love the color portion of cardmaking and have put it all together into a card. We make a pretty good team if I do say so myself. ;)

Wayne traced the "Great Pumpkin" stencil (LL3036) and then used an 01 micron pen by Sakura (01) to tangle inside the lines. I used the Picasso stencil shield (LL332) to create the clouds on the dotted swiss paper from Bazzill using pigment ink. I also put the pumpkin stencil on top of the tangled pumpkin and stenciled each segment with a different color of ink. Then I put a halo of color around the pumpkin using a large brush and finished this portion by mounting it onto purple cardstock. Once I mounted this onto the cloud stenciled cardstock I paste-embossed the bat (LL525) onto the corner of the card and next the thank you stencil (LG691). Both of these were paste-embossed with the Matte Black Embossing Paste (DMBP). Once dry, the card was mounted on a couple other colors of cardstock for an upbeat patchwork look.  And the bat's eyes were dabs of florescent orange ink. A little bit creepy, huh, Alison? Maybe there's hope yet.

Now take a minute to view more fun creations from the best team in the world!

I've just been researching Zentangle as another bloggy friend did a cool card using the technique.. all I can say here Wayne is that this is AMAZING!!
Love, love love it!
I'm not brave enough to try this yet but I may just grab some paper over the weekend and start doodling patterns. Lol.

Your card is awesome. I like the color combination and the different stencils used. Wayne's zentangle is amazing, I have NOT been able to master that technique, YET. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

It's definitely a bit creepy! I love the glowing eyes on the bat. Great job with stepping out of your comfort zone! The zentangle is awesome...not something I am confident in tackling....maybe that should be something I do to step out of my comfort zone then, huh? :)

Thank you for your kind words. You make a gal feel very special!
