Hi again!! Ok, I just learned that I have to write a separate post for each picture I want to add to Darnell’s NBUS challenge so we’ll try it this way now!! My next entry goes a little darker than the cute little adorable mermaids I just wrote about. Well, these actually go a lot darker.. Here is card #1 of entry #2.
What better way to showcase Halloween than with skulls and spiders and blood??? This was REALLY fun to make. It started off as just a piece of manilla paper!! I used Apothecary, Bitty Grunge and Mini Halloween, all by Stampers Anonymous, and I also used Nevermore by Inkadinkado. My family is HUGE skull fans. We even have a permanent Skull that hangs above our garage year round. No really, we do! His name is Dexter. Anyway, I used distress ink to add color to the cardstock. The colors I used are Antique Linen, Old Paper, Vintage Photo, Black Soot and a touch of Scattered Straw. I stamped the skull using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then popped it up on foam adhesive, but first I colored it with my Copic Markers. The colors I used on the skull are W0, W2, W4 and W6. I’ve purchased all my copics from www.carpediemmarkers.com. I then popped the entire card front up on some black fun foam. I still wanted the skull to be my focal point so I popped it up with adhesive squares. If you’d like to see how I made this card, click here to be re-directed to my YouTube channel.
Stay tuned for my next Halloween card as part of my 2nd entry.
