Day 1 of 31 Days of Halloween

Oh yeah!  It's October 1st - time to get your SPOOK on!  This year I am participating as a Wicked Blogger  - which means I will be posting a Halloween project each day this month.  It's all part of a month long super spooky hop hosted by Smeared Ink.  You can follow along with us Wicked Bloggers - you'll find all the links over there on the right side ---> IF YOU DARE!

For my first project I figured I'd stay true to myself and my purple and owl obsession.  This was the best owl I had for making Spooky something. And of course I'm going to have my moon stamp very close to my side the next 31 days. And try as I might to not use that honeycomb stamp around the edges - it just works so well for me.

For the background a did some stamping with the winemakers mark stamp in purple distress ink and then sprayed it.  Then I went around the edge with a purple, silver, and black gelato and SMEARED and SMUDGED (appropriate, no?).  Then I stamped the honeycomb stamp around the edge in black and purple, then the word Spooky and the tree in black.  Then I stamped the moon and owl on white paper, cut them out and glued them on. 



I glued the whole thing down on white card stock and stamped 31 days of Halloween.  
I know I'm going to have a lot of fun this month sharing my creations with you - and I hope you enjoy following along!  Happy WICKED blogging!

I like the way you put the black ink on. At first lance, I thought it was a photo that had been in a fire. Very cool looking.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to leave a comment. That's what I was thinking too Nan - it ended up reminding me of a poloroid.
