Gaze into my Crystal Ball with Petaloo and Graphic 45 Blog Hop

Have you been hopping along this week with Graphic 45 and Petaloo?  I hope so.  Not only will you see some amazing Halloween Décor goodies, but you can win a great prize pack. 
I am a sucker for Halloween and Halloween decor.  I'm not one for the gore and blood but I love the vintage Halloween decorations that have become so popular.  I think I pulled off that vibe with my pair of crystal ball centerpieces.
I love the way I trick the eye and you think there is a floating image in the center.  I achieve that will a little smoke and then stamping on transparency with Staz-On ink and some Steampunk Spells stamp set.  Once they are placed inside the glass ball they really look like they are floating in mid's so cool. 
The paper line I used is Eerie Tale from Graphic 45 and the colors really lend themselves to that retro Halloween theme.  I just adore the little spider I stamped....just the small details can really boost your projects. 
The flowers I used from Petaloo were beautiful but they had white problem I just sprayed them with some purple dye/stain and then they were perfect to nestle into my grouping.
