Its Stampendous and May Arts week!


Its Collaboration time again at Stampendous and May Arts!  We have loved the collabs in the past and couldn't wait to do this again.  May Arts has the most beautiful yummy ribbon ever!  I was lucky enough to receive lots of fun textures and patterns and I chose Halloween of course, especially since today is October 1st!

I created a layout for today using a variety of Halloween stamps and ribbons.  My picture is of my youngest daughter and one of her friends when they did a bit of zombie makeup one day.


I started by spraying my background cardstock with Squeezed Orange, Pure Sunshine and Crushed Grape Dylusions ink sprays.  I then pulled out an od Tattered Angels stencil and sprayed Black Marble through that in random spots.


Along the edges of my page I stamped Tin Panel and embossed that with Aged Black Embossing Enamel.  I also added a portion of the Beware Gate in the bottom left also in Aged Black.



Next I cut some papers from the Chillingsworth Manor paper collection by Echo Park.  I edged one in Pewter Distress Stain from Tim Holtz.  The other I embossed the edge with Aged Black.  I also stamped Raven Background and embossed that with Clear Detail Black on a separate piece of cardstock.  I added Aged Black, Aged Spice Enamel and Trick or Treat Color Fragments to the edges using my Versamark pad and Heat gun.



My final touches were a few stickers from the EP paper pack and of course lots of fun ribbon!  I used a mesh black, large Orange and Black plaid, and satin black on black striped.  These were added with a touch of glue and then taped over to the back.



NOW I feel ready for a month of Halloween!  I hope you'll check back at the Stampendous blog each day for more inspiration and a list of the players for each day.  There are always fun prizes to be had!  

Here's today's list of players:
