Got It? Haunt It! Theme week and 31 Days of Halloween

This post represents the "Got It?  Haunt It!" Theme week for Stampendous, my first post for the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween and, of course, Dreamweaver Thursday.........

Here is how I did it:

Removable Tape
Craft Knife
Card Stock

For the Background Papers:
Mixed Media Paper

For this project, I made my own distressed background paper.  Since the paper was actually the extra papers that I created for another project, I will direct you to the post that includes those instructions HERE.  
When the papers are dry, then follow these steps:

1.  Paste the blue paper with the Spider Web Stencil using the Regular Embossing Paste and set it aside to dry.  (To paste, adhere the stencil over the paper by taping down all the edges with removable tape.  Then, use the palette knife to put paste on the paste spreader.  Place the paste spreader directly on the stencil and pull it toward you, like a squeegee, keeping contact with the stencil at all times.  Then, remove the tape and the stencil.)

2.  Use the Spider Web Stencil over the top of the orange paper to determine where to place the spider.  Mark it lightly through the stencil.

3.  Paste the Spider Stencil over the mark.  Use the Matte Black Embossing Paste.

4.  While the spider is still wet, use tweezers to place the gemstones.

5.  Stamp the sentiment in the corner with the Stayzon Ink.

6.  When everything is dry, use a craft knife and scissors to cut out the spider web around the saying and the spider.

7.  Assemble the card.

Now that you know what I did, check out the rest of the posts for the day.  They may be the "Got It? Flaunt It!" Theme, or even Dreamweaver Thursday, but I am the only 31 Days of Halloween player on this list today.
