Dreamweaver Spookiness

We're having a hauntingly good time on the Stampendous Design Team this week!  Dreamweaver Thursday is no exception!  I've created a card for today with the coolest creepiest critter made with a Dreamweaver Stencil, a spider!  I actually kinda creeped myself out with this one as I'm horribly afraid of spiders.  Yikes!

And, here's a close-up so you can see how sparkly the spider web is:

Here's what I used to create this card:

VersaMarker™ Watermark Ink Pen by Tsukineko®
Memories™ Mists Iridescent Spray
Black Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Doodlebug Design Inc.™ Haunted Manor 6x6 Paper Pad
3D Foam Mounting Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here's what I did to create this card:

Trim a piece of black cardstock, lay stencil over top and spritz with mist, allow to dry
Paste emboss spider over web with silver paste, set aside to dry
Trim a piece of patterned paper to fit behind stenciled piece
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold from black cardstock
Ink stamps with VersaMarker pen and stamp onto black scrap of paper
Add embossing powder and heat
Create a mat for sentiment from patterned paper
Put all layers together as shown
Using foam squares, attach matted sentiment to card front

I really like the dramatic black and silver/gray color scheme of this card.  I think it's perfect for a Halloween card.  Here's a list of my teammates playing along today:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you're enjoying our hauntingly good fun this week.  I'll have another card for your spooking pleasure tomorrow!  Have a great day!
