31 Days of Halloween: Brewing Up Some Spookiness with Stampendous and Dreamweaver-Day16

Here is my creation for day 16 of the 31 days of Halloween challenge over on the Smeared Ink blog. This one is dedicated to my favorite "Witchy-Poo", and co-incidentally, also my boss at Stampendous. No, this will not be an insult to her, as Halloween is her favorite time of the year, and even her profile pic is of her in a witch's hat. She will love this framed witch (yes, Laura, I promise to send it to you to add to your Halloween collection!) mainly  because it uses some awesome products from Stampendous...the center of the Cling Mirror Mirror, the web and music from the Perfectly Clear Halloween Charms set, and piles of Aged Black and Aged Wine Embossing Enamels.

The frame base is a cheap one that I purchased at Michael's for $1. It is quite small, about 4 1/4 X 3 1/2 inches, and has a small easel back for display purposes. I covered the frame in VersaMark ink, and poured a mix of the two Fran•tagé enamels over the frame, and heated until it was molten and textured. I had some really cool Swarovski crystals in a color-shifting purple-to-gold that I embedded into the molten enamel.

I used the insert for the frame as a template, and stamped the music, the web, and the witch to align in the center, in Onyx VersaFine ink by Tsukineko®. I kept the acetate oval in place, and inserted my stamped oval, and POOF! That was it. Think how fun these would be as gifts or place holders for guests at your Halloween Monster Mash, or as part of your own display for Spooktober.

Thank you so much, Smeared Ink, for providing the opportunity for us to take Halloween to a whole different level, and to Alison Heikkila for nudging us there!

 I hope you've been following the Stampendous team as they've taken turns to demonstrate that even cute can be creepy in the right hands...or claws. Follow on the Stampendous Blog.
