Day 2 of 31 with Stampendous & Imagine

Greetings! It's Day 2 of the 31 Days of Halloween, and I have a project that is chock full of Stampendous and Imagine today.

This is a 6x6" Mini Page. I think I'll have a bunch of these this month. I like the size and the fact that I can just pop them into an album once they're done. For this one, I started off with Desert Sand Memento and Wheat Versa Magic from Imagine, and I streaked it across my cream colored cardstock. Then I stamped and embossed the Raven Skull stamp from Stampendous. 

Next, I played with one of my all-time favorite stencils, Houndstooth. I used the stunning Black Shimmer Delicata Ink from Imagine and a stencil brush. I applied it semi-random, with a varying coverage. Then I used an older stamp set from Nat Kalbach (via Stampendous) and Brown Shimmer Delicata to ink the brown splotches. I also used the Brown Shimmer on the die cuts I made using Stampendous' Build a Wreath Die set. This set is fan-freaking-tastic, and is going to be used a whole lot around here. As you can see, I cut the 2 pine boughs, and the scalloped circles. I cute the pieces with black cardstock, flipped them into the ink pad and pressed random areas into the ink with my fingernail. 

Then, there's my absolute favorite new inky-thing that I've gotten this year (and I thought it was going to be the Delicata inks! Those are my second fave). Check out those finger-licking-good drops of blood. Those were created with Imagine's irRESISTable Spray in Love Letter. You NEED this stuff. In lots of colors, but especially Love Letter. It seriously looks like someone bled all over my project. I may go through a whole bottle of it this month!

That's it for me today. Thanks for hanging through and making it to the end of this post. I hope you go and try some of these products. You won't be disappointed! Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
