Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!! It’s my favorite day of the year and I am so excited to share it with all of you. It’s a bit bittersweet….I LOVE the anticipation…building up the excitement, and I always get sad when it’s all over of course. Also, my sweet Mother in Law passed on Halloween night 2 years ago. She (along with my Dad, Father in Law, and dog Oliver) will be honored in our annual Day of the Dead Celebration. But no more sadness now! It’s Halloweenie!!!
As you all know, I have been a Guest DT member with the Dream Team from Dreamweaver Stencils this month. And I have loved every minute of it! This month, the challenge has been Magical and Mysterious. Kinda like me! 😉 So here is my last GDT project….
Ok. So I don’t like spiders. I used to be terrified of ’em, but I’m trying to play nice and not shreik every time I see them, or kill them, etc. I let them live now, I save their lives (by taking them outside), let them hang out in corners of the house, and so on. So, I thought it would be nice of me to make them a card. Yeah, I think I have lost my mind.
I started off with embossing the Spider Web with silver embossing paste. Love that stuff! I shook on some gunmetal colored glitter, and let it dry. I took my Spider and embossed him with black embossing paste on black cardstock. Once he was dry, I verrrrrry carefully cut him out. Actually, the paste made it a lot easier. I took the gorgeous Leafless Tree and inked it up with silver ink on black cardstock, trying to make it look like cracks or something that has shattered.
I used pop dots for the spider, and I stamped my sentiment (Recollections) with StazOn on to acetate. I fastened it with 2 eyelets. Ta da!!! The Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween is officially over for me! And I loved it! Loved all of you too! Thank you for making this month rock! And a huge thank you to the Dream it Up! team for allowing me to be a guest. It has been a blast. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers one last time…all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!!!
