Crow in Tree: Day 31 of 31

Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!! It's the greatest day of the year! I can't believe we have made it to the end. Thank you so much to everyone that has left me such wonderful comments. I have been more of a lurker this year, but I am going to try to go back and leave you guys some love now that the month is over. For my last 31 Days of Halloween project for the year, I have one last tag.

I broke out an older stencil called the Leafless Tree from Stampendous (originally from Dreamweaver Stencils). This is a HUGE stencil, but I used just a tiny piece on this tag. I sprayed it with a few colors like purple, black, and deep blue, and then flipped it over on to my tag.

I pulled out some Inkadinkado stamps from years ago and applied them with Onyx Black VersaFine ink, and then I heat embossed them with Detail Black Embossing Powder. I wanted to add something else and I toyed with the idea of splattering red, but I didn't want to do that. Then I thought that I could add some white splatter to look like stars, but instead I decided to go with Nuvo Jewel Drops in Seafoam. This is translucent and I thought it added a nice bit of dimension and shine to the tag.

That's it for me! Again, thank  you so much for all of your visits. I really hope you have enjoyed my projects this month. And I hope you will visit again soon. Have an absolutely spooktacular Halloween!!!

What a clever way to use the stencil so that you get the negative image. It makes such a cool sky. Great tag with all that dimension and texture. Happy Halloween!

I like the idea of using just a small part of the stencil. I'm learning to use stencils and I'm more comfortable with the larger ones. Now I know I can still use them on smaller projects. Thank you for the great inspiration.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
