Day 20 of 31 Days of Halloween

Ok....SO I f'ed up big time... If you were here this morning... you would have seen that I had TWO projects up today. My Strange Skin card and a StampInsanity card. Trouble's NOT Thursday! So...I took the StampInsanity portion of this post down. This is what happens when I get no sleep! So...that post will be up tomorrow, along with something else. Major oops! Sorry Beth! (blushing)

Now for my 31 Days project! I used one of Strange Skin’s Cameos for this card. I love this whole set!!!


Isn’t she awesome! She has such a snarky look on her face!


It’s tough to see,, but I used some pale shades to color in the vamp and the backgrounds. You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger. I’m really happy with the candle holders. My husband suggested I color them to look like they had a patina finish, and I think they turned out great!


As you can see from this photo, I stamped some batty bats on to my deep red cardstock. Plus, I used Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist along with my Martha Stewart splatter stencil. The K. & Co. paper on top is just divine with the colors I used in the cameo.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Blogger…posted on my sidebar. Don’t forget about the Groovy Gurlz! And, if you have time…pop by the StampInsanity shop and Strange Skin as well! And don’t forget…today we will have our hidden image from the Wild Flower Kids! Sorry about any confusion there may have been yesterday. Have an inspiring day!!!
