Yeah! Today’s Bloggers’ Challenge is a sketch card! I love sketches, as you know! This is a pretty easy one, once I had my stamp set figured out!
I love this time of year, I get to pull out my Halloween sets…and yes, I have a LOT of Halloween sets. Except, Just Jawing isn’t really a Halloween set…more of a teen stamp set, but I love the skull. (And Tonya, yes…if you are reading this, I have changed my mind about this set!) I received it free during the promotion last year and finally got it cut and mounted a couple months ago. I’ve found it useful for doing cards for my teenage niece and nephew!
Anyway…here is the card I did using this sketch!
I started by stamping the skull with White Craft ink on a piece of Cast-A-Spell Designer Paper (can you see the bats and such in the background?) and embossed with White Embossing Powder. I then used some Tombow Multipurpose glue and colored in the heart eyes with glue and sprinkled on some Celery Fine Cosmo Glitter. Fun! I roughed up the edges with my Cutter Kit Distressing Tool and layered it on an Old Olive piece of cardstock and distressed those edges, too. That element was layered onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock, also distressed and inked with Basic Black and a sponge dauber. I wrapped some of the delicious 1 1/4 Striped Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon (this stuff ties SO nicely!). I made up some Faux Diamond Dust glitter paper (rub Versamark over your cardstock, add Iridescent Ice EP and heat set) with Old Olive cardstock and punched three of the small hearts from the Heart to Heart punch and adhered them to the Pumpkin Pie cardstock with Mini Glue Dots. Finally, I stamped Happy Halloween from Teeny Tiny Wishes in black ink under the hearts. (If you don’t have that Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set yet…what are you waiting for? I use it on almost EVERY card now! It has 28 different greetings that are the perfect size for small wishes!)
I hope you have a great weekend! Other than my Demo Convention Round Up meeting on Sunday, I think I’m in for a quiet one…yeah!
