A Miserable Halloween

Today is the twelfth day of the 31 Days of Halloween Challenge and Blog Hop, sponsored by Smeared Ink and the Smeared and Smudged forum!

To see everyone who is participating in the blog hop, follow the blog roll on the right.  If you're following the blog roll, you probably got here from Sue's blog and will want to proceed to Leslie's blog after you've stopped here!

Continuing my series A Gibson Girl Halloween, today I have poor Annabelle who anticipates a "Miserable Halloween."  This is a 6 x 6 inch fat page.

The details:
  1. Crystal ball--stamp from unknown maker
  2. Annabelle--Gibson Girl stamp from flonzcraft (also on ebay here)
  3. Woman's head in crystal ball--from All the Gals stamp set by Dina Wakley
  4. Background--found papers
  5. KimberlyGeneral’s and Loew Cornell watercolor pencils
  6.  Faber Castell Gelatos
  7. Little B Kraft/White chipboard
  8. Alphabets--Studio G alphabet stamp sets
  9. "Miserable"--word stamp from I Brake for Stamps (this was an overstock stamp which I believe is now sold out)
  10. Prima Marketing Chalk Ink Edgers
