31 Days of Halloween Day #21

Welcome to 31 Days of Halloween 2015 presented by Smeared Ink! Every day this month I will be posting a Halloween/Spooky/CreepyCute project here on my blog. This is a blog-hop and the blog-roll is over there to the right of your screen ---> 
While having some fun, creating, blogging and hopping, I'm also hoping to raise some funds for Cancer Research UK in collaboration with Stand Up 2 Cancer.
Please consider sponsoring my 31DOH posts and as a special Thank You, everyone who donates even a single pound before November 1st via my Just Giving page will receive a handmade card from me! 
This was an experiment with photo paper, Distress Stain, Distress Inks and Black Archival ink. I coated the paper in Fired Brick DI, let it dry then stamped on top with the Black Archival - I found that the stamp in places either left the black ink OR removed the red stain! I plan to play around with this a bit more but love the final look!

Stamps - My Mind's Eye and Visible Image
Die cuts - Tim Holtz Raven (Bigz) and border cut on the Cameo
DP - Authentique Moonlit
Stencils - Tim Holtz Burlap, Dreamweaver Spiderweb
Inks - Dylusions sprays, Mowed Lawn Distress Ink
I will enter this card in the following challenges - 
Sketch Saturday - #38 Sketch
