31 Days of Halloween - Day 13

to Lyneen's Day 13 of the 
Smeared and Smudged 
31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop! 
and my DT post for The Robin's Nest

During the month of October I am participating in a month-long blog hop with some amazing artists.  Today I am sharing my design team project for The Robin's Nest. If you have time you may want to see what the design team is up to HERE!

Everyday you will find a new Halloween project on all of the blogs listed below.  Each project must have stamping on it, be it digi or ink. There are prizes to win, be sure to check out all the rules HERE and information. There is a daily scavenger hunt, you must go HERE to find the clue/s for the item/s you are looking for in the scavenger hunt.  To find the previous day winners go HERE.  Have fun and Good Luck!

Here are a couple of Halloween greeting cards made with papers from The Robins Nest and stamps from Sin City Stamps. The images on both cards are on the Halloween Takes flight Plate.

The Robin's Nest is having a Masquerade Contest!!!
October 15 - November 15
Hope you join us...
here is my inspiration piece!

My paper mask is made with The Robin's Nest products:

Here is a close up of the left eye, you can see the lashes are raised. 
The right is embellished with random green, purple and blue Dew Drop Diamond Shapes.

The Dew Drop Diamond Shapes were a perfect fit for the beak on this pattern template.

The mask is ready to wear, just add ribbon.!

For a template I searched the web... there are a lot of mask templates to choose from. I found this one at SkipToMyLou


  1. upplies: paper, chenille pipe cleaner, blue ink and glue stick.
  2. Cut two pieces of 6 x 2 inch pieces of cardstock.
  3. Apply glue stick to the back of both pieces of cardstock. 
  4. Put a 4 inch chenille pipe cleaner in the middle of one piece of cardstock. 
  5. Press the other piece of cardstock over the chenille pipe cleaner.
  6. Cut in the shape of a feather 
  7. Cut the fringe of the feather, being careful not to cut through the chenille pipe cleaner. 
  8. From the base of the feather lightly ink.
  9. Attach to your mask with quick dry glue 
  10. Once dry arrange the feathers
