31 Days of Halloween - Day 5

Hello folks, and it’s day 5 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 days of Halloween Blog Hop.  All you have to do to take part is to hop through each of the Wicked Blogs that are participating and leave a comment on each project.  All Horrifying Hoppers will receive a Survival Button at the end of the month to proudly post on their blog.

If you’re following the blog hop in order, you’ve arrived here from Teresa’s blog.    If you’ve arrived from elsewhere and you’d like to work your way through all the participating blogs, the blog roll is in the sidebar – just start at the beginning or wherever suits you best.

Today’s project is a  kinetic card based on the Secret Slider mechanism. 



Pull the tab at the bottom of the Rickety House and ...Wooo!  Spooky!  



(I've made a Vine of it in action)

The ghost is a Sizzlets die cut in acetate and adhered to acetate (cut from packaging).  I wanted the "Happy Halloween" to be a nice vivid orange...unfortunately I didn't have any orange embossing powder.  The nearest I had was peach, too pale for what I wanted.  Then I had a lightbulb moment - what if I used Promarker over the top of the sentiment?  Guess what, it worked!












Hope you are enjoying the hop.  Don't forget that Scavenger Items will be hidden randomly on the Wicked Blogs, and are not guaranteed to be available every day. You will have to visit blogs to find them. If you find one, you will email and let us know exactly where it was and your name will go into that scavenger item's drawing. Each person who finds the "hidden" picture will get one entry. The drawing for each scavenger prize will be the day after it was posted and winners will be chosen by random number based on who emailed. you for visiting.  Now, if you’re working your way through the roll, it’s on to Renee.  Bye now!
