31 Days of Halloween - The Skeleton Dance - Day 1

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Welcome one and all to Lost Coast Designs/Carmen's Veranda 31 Days of Halloween.  Yes, we are participating in the blog hop once again this year and have 31 days full of projects to share.  I'm going to include the blog roll below, so don't forget to hop along with all the participants.  Some will be giving away prizes along the way and yes, we are one of those that will.

For a chance to win some LCD/CV rubber link your entry below by midnight, October 31st.  See the RULES to make sure your entry qualifies.

I'm going to kick it off my with my ATC called The Skeleton Dance.  I recently watched an old 1929 black and white cartoon short called The Skeleton Dance.  When I came across the Dancing Skeletons stamp set I knew what I was going to do.  A homage to that awesome cartoon.

To begin, I stamped CV Skulls and Bones in white on an ATC I had painted black.  I then whited out the area I wanted my skeleton to go, stamped the Dancing Skeleton on a piece of cardstock, cut it out, and added it to the white space.  I then added dots of orange ink around the edges.  I am in a black and white with a touch of orange Halloween ATC swap and this fits the bill perfectly.  Finally, I printed out The Skeleton Dance on my computer, cut it out, and added it to my piece.

If you want to watch the short, click HERE.
Now, your turn.  Hop on along with the below Wicked Bloggers.  I have also posted the blog roll in our sidebar to make it easier to find.
