OK, now for the hop! 

This project just kind-of happened and I'm extremely pleased at how it came out. Last night I was searching for inspiration and found an awesome image in one of my magazines. It's a metallic print of a close-up of a face. The eyes are closed and the skin looks worn. My lightbulb went off and here we go...

I chose to mix this awesome image with one of the As Death stamps (Smeared Ink). I colored my image with prismacolor markers and then used clear crackle over the entire image. I really like the effect even though it was hard to photograph. For my sentiment I used the words Halloween and SCREAM from the Lonely Boy and Puff set (Smeared Ink). I distressed them with my peeled paint ink pad and then used the clear crackle on them as well. I ripped the edges of my background image and glued it to my black card stock. Then I punched some small holes so I could sew some silver twine through it. I applied my other images and then added in some more twine on the sentiments and over the eyes of my background image. My coworker saw the card this morning and told me that it really creeps her out. LOL. I laughed....just a normal laugh though, I need to work on my evil laugh.

Once again, I hope you're enjoying our hop! A lot of fabulous artist are working really hard to bring you all these great Halloween Projects!! You might have noticed that my blog has changed a little so I wanted to be sure to point out that the 31 Days of Halloween info is still located on my sidebar with the list of Wicked Blog Participants.
