It’s October!!!! My absolute favorite month of the year! I am SO happy that it is finally here. Today is huge, for so many reasons. I have a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge to share with you, the new term with Bombshell Stamps is starting, and…the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween has started! Holy crow! That’s a whole lotta stuff. Let’s start with the itinerary for DICC, which is also my project for today’s 31 Days project.
I chose to use this fabulous silhouette of an owl and a full moon by Floppy Latte. The itinerary numbers I used were 2, 3, 5, 7 (I promise it’s purple and not blue!), 9, and 10. I colored the moon with 3 colors of Copics.
I inked the edge with a chalk ink, and after assembling the whole card, I sprayed it with Walnut Stain Glimmer Mist.
Here you can really see the shimmer from the Mist. Isn’t it pretty? I like how the large splotches of Mist look like craters on the moon.
My sentiment (stamped on Mulberry paper) is from Inkadinkado. It’s a very simple card, and not overtly Halloween, but for the faint of heart, this is just spooky enough.
Now, you have few things to do. You need to head over to the DICC Blog to see what the rest of the DT did with their Floppy Latte images. You need to check your visit the Bombshell Blog/Forum and your inbox to meet the entire team for the newest term. And, now this is super important, you need to check out my sidebar. See the Wicked Blogger list? Go and visit all of those wonderful folks from the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween for nothing but Halloween goodness! Go get hopping! Thank you for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
Great colors and I love the Copic work. They blend so well and I love the touch of the Mulberry paper, I didn't think of that for any of my projects. Thanks for sharing.
