Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop. This hop is scheduled from Oct. 19 at 8:00 am through Oct.31 at 11:00 pm (central time). It's that time of year when the nights are all spooky and creatures are known to wander the forests. So sit for a spell with a nice cup of hot apple cider and check out all the great projects.
If you just happened upon this hop, then welcome, but make sure to go back to the beginning and start at Lisa's blog.
We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.
The hop is a 13 day hop with only 13 blogs to visit so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup 13 times. Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops. Please come back all 13 days to see great projects.
This card was also designed by my BFF, Gina. We stamped and embossed the mummy and then cut it out. It is placed on a piece of paper that was embossed with a Tim Holtz brick embossing folder, then distressed. The background of this card is what this card is all about though. It is done with a can of sweetened condensed milk. We learned this technique at a class that we took at Impress. You paint the milk on the paper and then heat it up with a heat gun. It gets the brown coloring from the sugar in the milk burning. It smells like you are making cotton candy during this process. Then when you are done, you use chalks to add different coloring. I added green and purple. A piece of gold tape was applied across the bottom of the card.
Now on to AMY's blog to see another great project!
