Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween 2014 Blog Hop- Day 8

Welcome to Day 8 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.

To see all of the rules and regulations for 31 Days of Halloween 2014, please visit THIS POST.

Today I want to share a fun card I made.

Stamp dress onto white CS and color with Copic markers.  Use Labels 14 to cut out the dress image.  Use Twisted Metal Tags and Accents die to cut out the yellow CS.  Leave yellow CS in the die and add Seedless Preserves distress ink through die openings.
 Here are all the pieces you will need to put your card together.  "Haunt Couture" was stamped onto yellow die cut Fancy Tags 3.  Leave yellow CS in the die and add Seedless Preserves distress ink through die openings.
Layer Stampin' Up print paper onto yellow CS, then onto black card.  Add frame, pop dot the inside piece with the dress image, and pop dot the label.  Add a gold swirl gem sticker, as shown.  Easy peasy!
