Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween - Day 15

Smeared and Smudged
31 Days of Halloween
Day 15
-------------------------

Welcome back!  Today we are on day 15 of Smeared and Smudged's 31 Days of Halloween.  

My project today is similar to yesterday's project.  When using alcohol ink backgrounds, I tend to make a bunch of backgrounds at once since the inks can be so messy.  Then I store my stash until creativity hits.  This makes assembly WAY quick!  For this card, I busted out my Ranger Alcohol Inks and dabbed them onto a sheet of transparency.  Once dry, which only took moments, I stamped my pumpkin and bats (Inkadinkadoo) in black Archival Ink.  I mounted the transparency onto yellow cardstock with eyelets and a simple black ribbon.  The yellow background helped to bring out the yellows and oranges of the alcohol ink.

Notice my potion bottles in the background?  I'll be featuring them in a separate posting on Sunday.  Technically, they don't use a stamped image so I cannot use them for one of my 31 projects, but they are so cool they are worth a looksie!

Here is the blog roll for today:

Thanks for Stopping By!
Cheers!
