Greetings! It’s Day 26 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween. Along with that, this week, the Stampendous team is featuring projects that are All About the Dead. I made a card featuring the Skull Roses stamp, and the Spider Web stencil from Dreamweaver.
I colored the stamped image with my Tombow watercolor markers. Then I fussy cut it out. I embossed the Spider Web with glossy black embossing paste on to teal cardstock. After it dried, I started adding my torn paper and punched border.
I used some wonderful Mini Glue Dots to adhere my black cabochons to the top of the card. The mini Glue Dots are usually my go-to dot size of choice. They are the perfect size and really bond so everything so well.
That’s it for me today. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Blogers, all listed in my side bar, as well as the Stampendous gals that are listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!
