October 3~ 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Blogger Challenge Day 3~APCC Week 5

Greetings this Friday! Yay!

Today's post is Day 3 of Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Blogger play along. The challenge being to post a new project each day using Halloween or Day of the Dead and a stamped or digi image.

See Terra's blog HERE for all the details. Remember there are great daily giveaways in the scavenger hunt and a giveaway for all you lovely Blog Hoppers :) In case you get lost, the Hop is right here>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>under Mr. Neon Skele!

My project is also for Claudine's Week 5 Altered Playing Card play along. This is another super fun project to alter an entire deck of playing cards, just do 2 per week. Cool thing is you can join up anytime to play along. Come see the fun HERE

This is the first card for this week, I hope to get the second one done soon, lol. The prompt is using acrylic paint and run from there!


I primed the card with a thin coat of gesso a couple of weeks ago to prep for this challenge. I painted the coral color onto the background and let it dry. Then I used a stencil to add the teal dots. 

I used Unity stamps for everything else. The pumpkin was colored with Sharpies and Bic Mark It pens.  I stamped the bats and sentiment onto tissue paper with Jet Black Archival ink. The black dots are from a domino pattern Unity stamp.

I love the playing card size, it is very close to an ATC, so fun to play with!

Thanks for visiting today, I adore all the comments you all have left, makes me all smiles!
Happy Hopping, see the Hopper list on the right sidebar:)

Have a spooky day!
