Day 8 of 31: If You've Got it, Haunt it.

Hellooooooo! It's time for Day 8 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween. I've got a card for you today that goes along with the Stampendous theme this week, which is "If You've Got it Haunt it." And since its Dreamweaver Thursday, I've tied a stencil into this theme too.

I took a slightly different approach to this theme. Instead of doing something witchy, I decided to "haunt" my pretty Fairy stencil a bit. Real simple...just used Glossy Black Embossing Paste. I like that it picks up the texture of the cardstock that I used, because I didn't apply a super thick layer of paste.

I got my sentiment from an older Stampendous stamp that is no longer available, but it had lots of sentiments all on one stamp. I spritzed it with irRESISTables from Imagine Crafts for some glossy texture.

I used some washi tape and paper scraps to finish off the card. Easy peasy! This was another fairly quick card to make (minus the drying time of the embossing paste).  Please be sure to check out the Stampendous gals that are also posting today, as well as the Wicked Bloggers that are listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by.. Have a terror-ific day!

I had to chuckle when I saw this card! Last night I was playing around with this stencil and am planning to use it on a Halloween card!!! I guess the saying "great minds think alike" is correct! Great card! TFS!

Awesome, I first looked that the fairy was embossed, you've done a smooth job with paste, brilliant.

the haunt is pretty.
I've not done much with embossing paste but it's on my list to do.
Love how small pieces of washi add some extra embellishment.
thanks for sharing.

Another wickedly good card Alison! You are successful creating a brooding fairy! Such a great way to use our tools for different themes. Thank you for sharing your card.

That image really reminds me of you!
As much as I admire witches, this is perfect for a haunt theme.
