Bats at Dusk: Day 9 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Can you tell that sometimes Dream Team's "Fearless Leader", Pam Hornschu, has a hard time deciding on monthly challenges? Since the team will be taking turns all month with the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, and we are doing a Christmas collaboration with Stampendous and Core'dinations the 13th - 17th, the confusion should be understandable. Therefore...happy HallowThanksMas! As usual, we'd love for you to play along with the challenge and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog. Just in case you are wondering...NO, YOU DO NOT NEED TO POST SOMETHING WITH ALL THREE HOLIDAYS ON IT! However, you get bonus points for actually using Dreamweaver stencils and product on your creations! And bonus points might actually earn you an extra stencil as our monthly winner...just sayin'! For me, I'm all about Halloween, of course...so I will be saving Christmas for the hop next week. 

This was FUN! I started off with Dreamweaver's Tree Line Die. I cut it using their double stick sheets, which I love. It makes sticking and glittering so simple. Then I started playing with photo paper. I took out my Ranger Archival Ink re-inkers and began to swirl colors. Here's what it looked like before I applied the trees to the background.

I stuck the trees on, and then I stamped on some flying bats from Inkadinkado. 

I added some ribbon from May Arts, and a little bit of glitter paper behind it to fill in the empty space. Pretty simple, but it gives off a creepy-cool feeling. Here's the rest of the "B" team, that's also posting for Dreamweaver today.

Wow- how different the background looks when trees are layered upon it.

It works beautifully.

The purple strip at the bottom gives it a strong baseline.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
