Can you tell that sometimes Dream Team’s “Fearless Leader”, Pam Hornschu, has a hard time deciding on monthly challenges? Since the team will be taking turns all month with the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, and we did a Christmas collaboration with Stampendous and Core’dinations the 13th – 17th, the confusion should be understandable. Therefore…happy HallowThanksMas! As usual, we’d love for you to play along with the challenge and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog. Just in case you are wondering…NO, YOU DO NOT NEED TO POST SOMETHING WITH ALL THREE HOLIDAYS ON IT! However, you get bonus points for actually using Dreamweaver stencils and product on your creations! And bonus points might actually earn you an extra stencil as our monthly winner…just sayin’!
Many people think of crows when they think of Halloween. The supposed harbingers of death, their strange “caw,” the movies, like The Crow…which takes place on Devil’s Night and Halloween. So, although my card for today isn’t especially Halloweenie…I still see plenty of elements that remind me of this most magical time of year in it. I hope you see them too.
I started off with the Raven stencil. I used black matte embossing paste, and after it dried, I cut it out. I wanted to show the softer side of crows, so I took the Nest stencil and inked that up. Yes, that is actually what crow eggs look like, I looked it up. 🙂 I added the “Quoth the Raven” sentiment from Smeared Ink.
I used the fantastic Quatrefoil stencil for my background, which I inked and heat embossed. LOVE this stencil! I added another crow on top…this one is a stamp from Inkadinkado, and then some fantabulous ribbons from May Arts.
So yeah….it’s not very Halloween looking. But I often associate these brilliant birds with this very special holiday. Please check out not only the Wicked Bloggers, but the rest of the B Team from Dreamweavers, all listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!
