TSG Spooky Silhouettes Blog Hop!

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Welcome to the last stop on the There She Goes Spooky Silhouettes Blog Hop!!

Mwhahahahahahahaha!! (No one laughed better than Vincent Price!)

If you've come by my blog from the super talented Maki Jones's blog, then you're on the right (spooky) path, but if you've just stumbled upon this post and you want to check out the rest of the SPOOKY BLOG HOP, then head over to the TSG blog to start your dark and mysterious journey there!

I looooove silhouettes for their boldness and the solid impression they leave. And especially because they work so well with the sponged ink technique!

I chose to use this silhouette of this spooky tree because it's scrolly branches matched this scrap piece of Creative Imaginations paper I have and because it SCREAMS Halloween! The area around the tree is sponged with Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. Then I used some very sparkly black glitter paper and the Labels Four Nestibilities to create a frame. The two layers of patterned paper were sponged around the edges with Walnut Stain and matted on some black cardstock.

You can't have a spooky tree without a crooked fence, so I used Martha Stewarts edge punch to add a little detail across the card and added the bow to ground it. Then I added some bats with the MS bat punch and sprayed the entire card with some Pearl Glimmer Mist for some extra sparkle! Oh my gosh how it sparkles!

Congratulations! You made it to the end of the hop! YAY! Now head back to the TSG blog to leave your name and contact info with Mr Linky for the chance to win this SPOOKTACULAR SET!! Woohoooo!
