Skulking .....


Made a card for a 'Halloween' Challenge over on UK Stampers Forum ......

I started with a 6 x 6 inch sqaare white card base. I then made a coloured background with Black Soot & Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide inks, by smooshing through the water sprayed inks on a non-stick craft matt. This was dried and stamped with the barbed wire and chandelier stamps in Versafine black, edging with white Posca pen.

The blood drips are watered down red acrylic paint added to the matt with a pipette at the top and allowed to drip  down before drying.

The scull was made with paperclay and a mold, coloured with ivory acrylic paint and with a couple or red adhesive gems in the eye sockets.

At this stage the background was matted onto black card and then to the card base. I added the skull and the stamped greeting on foam pads which was stamped in Versafine Clair tulip red and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to finish ....

Breathe ......


This card was made for the Less Is More Challenge .....


It has been made on a 6 x 6 inch white card blank. I cut a 4 x 4 inch matt and then die-cut some circles from yellow and purple card. I interleaved the circles and decorated with dots of purple and yellow Posca pen before applying on the matt. The matt was edged in yellow Versamagic chalk ink.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink and die-cut. It was again edged in yellow chalk ink. The matt was applied to the card base and the sentiment applied on foam pads to finish this simple card ....

Secret .....


Another 4 x 4 inch square card made on a white card base.

The background is an acrylic paint and mark making Gelli plate background with brown paint. I have cut a smaller square from this and then coloured with purple and light blue Distress inks, wiping over with a wet wipe to remove the ink from the paint which acts as a resist. I then stamped some dandelion clocks in purple Versafine Clair ink and coloured these with silver and white pens. The background was matted onto black card and again onto mauve card.

The printed words were trimmed and matted on more mauve card before applying and edging in black Posca pen.

The 'paper doll' was coloured with alcohol markers and Posca. It was matted on black card and trimmed to leave a border. It was attached on foam pads and grounded with black Posca pen. I added three violet adhesive gems and applied the panel to the card base to finish ....
