Day 16 - Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween - Stitches

Day 16 of Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween!


Day 16...we are officially half way through the Challenge...glad to see everyone is hanging in there. I am getting so many good ideas and inspirations from visiting your sites. Great artwork everyone!

I made this card with Dilly Bean Stamps (#475 little monster + #375 cute and dark sayings). I wanted to make a clean and simple card (difficult for me to do)! This little ghoul's eyes are paper pieced and propped on foam disks. They are also covered with glossy accents for some shine. His head cones also sport some glitter for some sparkle.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Cas-ual Friday - #117 clean & simple/stitching
Aud Sentiments - #91 funny Halloween sentiment
Crafty Catz - #202 Halloween
Sister Act - #28 anything goes
Sweet Pea - sparkle & shine
Incy Wincy - Halloween
Make it Monday - #162 anything goes
Parade Your Crafts - #6 Halloween
Stamp & Create - Fall/Halloween
Paper Shelter - #133 use two colors only

♥ Wendy
