Damask Divas Scaredy Cat Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas Blog Hop!  If you came here from the amazing Cydney, then you are at the right place. If you have missed any of the Sept line up, you can start back here. We are featuring Scaredy Cat paper pack this month – item # X7185B
 I just LOVE the designs in the Scaredy Cat paper, so I didn't want to cover it up. My project covered an old acrylic picture frame with the different sides of the b&t paper. Both side are so pretty that I just trimmed off part of the collage paper and used the opposite side as a strip underneath it. The other side of this paper is all different fences. The bottom is just different sized strips of the other papers in the pack.
I added chipboard arrow that came from the artbooking cricut collection. I stamped the trick or treat and the Happy Halloween from the retired CTMH Holiday Jubliee. (I think it was the stamp of the month many years back) I had Ruby CTMH ink left on my sponge dabber and dipped it in CTMH honey ink and found it made a pretty orange color that I put on the edges of the arrow and rubbed on the arrow. I also edged honey ink all over the edges of the paper before I assembled it. In this second picture of my project, I added the witch hate I cut from the same stamp set. I stamped it in slate and daped over it in that same ink mixture. I think the hat went well with these images. I also added an epoxy bubbles in green to the spider web.
