Today’s Bloggers Challenge is a sketch! My favorite! I get inspiration from sketches all the time. Since I’m still in Halloween mode, I pulled out my Just Jawing stamp set to give it a little love this week! I used it in place of the sunburst image that is drawn in the sketch.
I started by stamping the Skull on Night & Day Designer Paper and cutting it out. I colored the eyes with Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and the teeth with Barely Banana marker, then added Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds (it really turned that brilliant green color!) The base is Naturals White cardstock with a layer of Cast-A-Spell Designer Paper over top of it. Then I used another piece of the Cast-A-Spell Designer Paper on top, and wrapped the Black Grosgrain Ribbon around to the back and adhered. I punched two stars from some Faux Diamond Dust cardstock I made (Versamark on cardstock, add Iridescent Ice EP and heat emboss), then changed the color of a brad with Whisper White craft ink and White Embossing Powder. Finally, the greeting was stamped with Black Craft Ink on Old Olive and punched out with the Designer Label Punch. I sponged some Old Olive ink around the edges!
