31 Days of Halloween with Smeared and Smudged - Day 19!!!



31 Days of Halloween with Smeared and Smudged
Day 19!!!

Welcome back for another day of Halloween Hopping!
Notice anything familiar about today's project?  I used background digital images from Itkupilli again and also used the same DCWV cardstock as yesterday.  I read someone's blog the other day (sorry, I don't remember which blog it was) and the blog host made a project from all of the scraps on her craft table.  I decided to do something similar.  Although I started with a whole sheet of cardstock, I used it until it was gone.  I actually made 4 projects with it.  Not too bad, eeeh?  Anyway, it helped me utilize my materials better and saved a huge amount of time in clean-up as there was virtually nothing to clean when I finished my projects.  I may have to craft this way more often as I am a messy crafter and I HATE to clean!

I used "Lola" from Simply Betty Stamps "Back to School Emos" collection.  If you look to the left you'll notice a vampire in the shadows waiting to strike.  The tombstone on the right says "vampires are a pain in the neck".  Poor Lola seems clueless to the vampire's presence.  Perhaps the surprise will be on him?  Who's to say Lola isn't packing some serious stake action or holy water in her backpack?  Maybe she has some mad Ninja skillz?   I added a graveyard fence to help set the mood.  These acetate die-cuts are from the devil herself, Martha.  One of my blogging buddies summed it up pretty well..."even the devil can hire a good designer" so I don't feel too bad about financially supporting her minions.

I hope you've enjoyed my offering for today.  Be sure to leave some love on the other wicked blog participants.

Cheers!
