Flowers and Day of the Dead: Day 13 of the 31 Days of Halloween

I enjoyed Saturday's post so much, that I decided to go with another Day of the Dead project. This time, my feature image is from Dilly Beans. And, since I am double posting with Dreamweaver Stencils today, I used their gorgeous Corner Flowers stencil as another focal point.

I colored this beautiful image from Dilly Beans first, with my watercolor markers.

Then, I started to play with my stencil! I used Radiant Neon inks (frm Imagine Crafts), and sponge daubers to apply them.

Then, I embossed the flowers with a clear powder. I love the texture and shine the flowers have now.

I used 2 different ribbons from Maya Road (see the puffy blue trim at the top?), and they finished this card off. My post for Dreamweaver today is verrrry different from this one. I hope you like it! Please be sure to check out the rest of the 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
