Spider Web at Night: Day 29 of 31

Hello! The 31 Days of Halloween are nearing it's completion, but at least we still have a couple more days left. Today is Day 29, and I have a card to share. Spider webs at night look really cool when the moonlight hits them, especially if there is some dew on it. That's what I was trying to recreate here.

DWLJ816: Spider Web Stencil
DWLS28: Spider Stencil
DP101: Detail Silver Embossing Powder
DP111: Detail Black Embossing Powder
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Imagine: Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost, VersaMark Ink, Ink Sweeper
Ranger: Distress Oxides in Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade, and Black Soot, Ink Blending Tools
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Roller, Foam Squares
Kraft and Gray Cardstock

1. Using Mixed Media White Paper and Ink Blending Tools, apply Wilted Violet in the center of a
5 1/4" x 3 3/4" rectangle in a circular motion.

2. Apply Seedless Preserves to the bottom of the cardstock, blending it into the Wilted Violet ink.

3. Apply Spiced Marmalade to the top of the cardstock. blending with the Wilted Violet ink.

4. Apply Black Soot in random areas. Do not completely cover up the colors. Allow them to show through in some areas.

5. Spray Sheer Shimmer Spritz on to inked cardstock. I spritzed it as well as opening the bottle and allowing the straw to drip on to the cardstock.

6. Dry with a heat tool to speed up the process. You may want to use an anti-static powder tool over the whole thing just in case you missed a spot.

7. Temporarily tape down the cardstock to your work surface, and tape the Spider Web Stencil on top of that.

8. Using the Ink Sweeper, apply VersaMark ink to the entire stencil, using a dabbing motion.

9. When the cardstock below has a sufficient amount of ink on it, remove the stencil and sprinkle with Detail Silver embossing powder. Heat set.

10. On gray cardstock, tape down the spider stencil.

11. Apply VersaMark ink to the spider with the Ink Sweeper.

12. Remove the stencil, apply Detail Black Embossing Powder, and heat set.

13. Fussy cut the spider.

14. Create the card base with Kraft cardstock, to create a card tat is 4 1/2" x 5 1/2."

15. Apply VersaMark ink to two sides of the card base. Sprinkle with Detail Black Embossing Powder and heat set.

16. Repeat with the other two sides.

17. Adhere the spider web layer to the card base.

18. Cut small pieces of foam squares to fit under the spider's legs and body and adhere it to the card.

That's it for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed below. Have a spooktacular day!

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha.
My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "thank…

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…

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…
