Nicole Eccles<-----YOU ARE HERE

Today I have for you some quick spooky Halloween Inspiration to share!

This 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" Wood Art Block is simply made with only a few steps and some Mod Podge.
Combing the simplicity of black and white stamping with clipart. 
I absolutely LOVE the glazed over zombie like stare of this Skeleton!!  His eyes were just perfect for adding a touch of red with some yummy bling!
Stamp, or adhere paper along the edge of the block for a finished look.  To make it look more warn an aged, sand down corners till rounded, then ink before sealing with Mod Podge.
Supplies Used:
100 Proof Press: 4553 R ( Skull)
Webster's Pages
Want 2 Scrap Bling
Staz On Jet Black
Ranger: Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
Other:  wooden block, sand paper, Mod Podge, Clip art, Printer
Up next I have a delightfully toxic little Shadobox!
Though I love to color in my stamped images.  There is just something about using black and white images with just touches of color that can really make your project pop. 
Though it may be hard to tell from the picture, but each little image inside the box has been dimensionally placed using 3D Foam squares.  This helps to give more depth, but to really bring the whole scene together.
Combining 100 Proof Press Stamps with clipart, scrapbooking supplies and other stamps is so easy, you won't want to stop once you get started!!!!
Supplies Used:
100 Proof Press: 3643 U (witch)
Reminisce Labels and Patterned Paper
Martha Stewart Halloween Stamps and papers
Scrapbook Adhesives : 3D Foam Squares
Ranger: Lime Stickles
Other: 4x4 Shadowbox
Thank you so much for joining in the hop today!!
Hopefully we have all left you running for the scrapbook room to get started on your next creative journey!!
Wishing you a safe and relaxing weekend!!!
