A little spooky...A little late...

We have been having some drama around here.  We were without power for the majority of this past weekend, and now I am just getting caught up!

 One thing that I missed was the Rubbernecker Fall Blog Hop!  The card was 99% ready, when the power went out...and that is where the drama began.   I say drama, because there was no loss of property, no health endangerment, and it was only light raining outside (no snow, hail, tornadoes or freezing rain).

Here is my late contribution to the hop:
What I used:
  • Stamps: Sleepy Hollow Tree SKU:590; and sentiment; all from Rubbernecker;
  • Ink: Dark Brown Fluid Chalk Ink; Tim Holtz Distress ink (in order from bottom to top) Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, Aged Mahogany, Barn Door; 
  • Paper: white, brown, dark and light purple cardstocks;
  • Accessories: Spellbinder's dies; ticket corner punch, edge distress tool, Stickles glitter glue;

How I did it: 
I stamped the tree image with the Fluid Chalk Ink (it is waterproof and will not smear; Dark Brown).  I punched a circle from a scrap and applied removable adhesive to the back and placed it on the image.  This will become the moon.  

Using a scalloped circle for a template (experiment with different sizes for different effects)I started at the bottom and worked my way to the top of the image (see product list for colors and order) with an ink blending tool.

I then removed the punched circle.  I added Stickles glitter glue and smeared it to become fog.  I cropped and mounted the image and distressed and inked the edges.  The sentiment was inked and mounted as well.

Want some more inspiration??? Check out my other team members who were able to participate in the hop!
 Thanks for stopping by today!
