31 Days of Halloween - Day 31

And here we are - the last day in the Smeared Ink 31 days of Halloween Blog Challenge 2015.  We survived!  Before I go off for an evening of magical mayhem, let me say for one last time that, if you've been working your way around the blogs in order, then you've reached here from Sarah’s blog.  If you're hopelessly lost, then the blog roll is there on the right.

This is my favourite project of the hop, so I saved it for last.  

I used the into-the-frame die cutting technique to make it look as if the skeleton was staring in from of the apart.  masked off the big skellie with clear embossing powder, and the smaller one with a bit of post-it note.  The aperture is from a retired Stampin' Up! set and I was sad when they retired it, because it is such a beautiful shape.  This one is staying out after Halloween is over because I LOVE the way it turned out.    

I hope you've enjoyed visiting me throughout the month.  I have really, really enjoyed reading your comments and it's been lots of fun getting back into the darker side of crafting.  So now, for the last time in this hop, might I trouble you to move along to Lisa F’s blog .

Happy Halloween,
