Happy Friday stampers. It’s time for another one of Beate’s weekend sketch challenges. You can see Beate’s sketch HERE if you want to play along this weekend.
For this card, I used Stampin’ Up!’s Scary Skeleton stamp set. I stamped the image in versamark on Basic Black cardstock. Applied White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Heat to set with Heat Tool. Colored in with White uniball signo gelpen.
I repeated the above process twice so I could cut out only the head and adhere with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
I didn’t want the Basic Black cardstock main image piece to be as large as the skeleton image. It was just too much for the cardfront. I left the feet of the skeleton by cutting out around them to match up with my rectangular size. I added paper piercing around the basic black main image rectangle. To add some Pumpkin Pie color to all of the black and white, I used my Color Spritzer Tool just to add a subtle splash of color.
If you look closely, you can see that I colored in some of the white circles to the Night & Day Designer Series Paper. I also used my Sanding Block to distress the paper. The sentiment tag has a couple layers: base created with Night & Day DSP and Matchbox bigz xl die; second layer created with a window sheet from Night & Day DSP and Matchbox bigz xl die; top layer has the stamped sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with my Small Oval Punch. Added two black brads and attached to card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added Pumpkin Pie ink to Whisper White Organza Ribbon.
You can see more samples for todays sketch at these blogs: Charmaine, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, and Sharon.
