Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween 2014 Blog Hop- Day 14

Welcome to Day 14 of the 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop. As you know by now, I am participating in this month-long blog hop with some extremely talented artists.  The complete list of Wicked Bloggers (that's what we are called) are in my side bar.  There are lots of prizes in the daily scavenger hunt, and a Grand Prize worth over $300.

Today I have yet another journal card for my mini album.   If you've been following along, I've been making journal cards to place inside my still undecorated mini album.  Here's another one of my journal cards to add.  Click here to see my previous post.

I cut a piece of white card stock to 3" x 5", and placed inside by box designated for spraying inks.  Spritzed first with the Bittersweet spray.
Layer stencil over card and spray with the Mantis mist.
Remove stencil to reveal your design.
Stamp Spooky Collage with Versamark ink and emboss with detail black embossing powder.  Trim  card stock to slightly less than the Olive Green journal card that has been cut to 3" x 5".  Round all corners and adhere.  Add strip of washi tape across top, and tiny pearl gems inside the design.
Cut "31" from the Tim Holtz die and black card stock.  Add to journal card and cover with Lime Green Stickles glitter glue.


Card Stock:  White, Olive Green two-tone
Sizzix/Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers (Mini Spider & 31)
Memory Box Spooky Collage rubber stamp
Ink Pads: Versamark ink pad; Peeled Paint Distress Ink Pad
Detail Black embossing powder
Tim Holtz stencil (Latticework)
Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mists:  Bittersweet, Mantis
Green pearl gems
Recollections Haunted washi tape (green)

Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!!!!
