H is for Heikkila: Day 25 of 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to Day 25 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have something other than a paper craft. Hooray!!! I have been working on this piece for a while, because I had to allow for drying in between laying down the patterns. You'll see what I mean....


This pressed board "H" I found at Michaels for about a quarter on clearance. It's about 14" long. I think I may hang it on my front door or attach it to a wreath and then hang it to my door.

I used a bunch of Dreamweaver Stencils and a couple of stamps too. There's the Bats, the Owl on Oak, Damask, Houndstooth, Spider, and the Spider Web. The rest are stamps.

I used a little glossy black Embossing Paste, some black ink, and some fabulous black glittery embossing powder.

I would work on opposite sides of the H so that I wouldn't touch the wet spots. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

This is so cool and represents your family and their love of holidays and acting, reinacting, etc.

I grabbed a few letters of various materials when our Michael's closed.
Most my son's first initial.
