We have a really fun challenge over at Retro Rubber BlogChallenge for the next two weeks. Show us your Spooky images and share in the creativity!
I am not a super big fan of decorating for Halloween, and my stamp images reflect that as well. However I do have these two really fun dancing skeletons that have been around for at least 10 years. With a little research I determined the stamps were made by Stamp Franscisco.
Since skeletons are best shown in white, I stamped the images on black card stock with Tsukineko Versa Magic Cloud White and heat embossing them with detail white embossing powder. I used card stock left over from a Halloween layout that was perfect for this card, My Minds Eye Night Light in Dotted Corn to frame the image. Bazzill card stock in burnt orange backs the Dotted corn perfectly. Both were trimmed to size and the smaller oval from Spellbinders Petite Ovals Small was die cut through both layers. The larger oval was die cut from the Dotted Corn in a second step. The sentiment is from Rubber Stampede set that was originally mounted on foam and purchased from Michaels at least 18 years ago. It is stamped in Tsukineko Versa Magic Cloud White and heat embossing them with detail white embossing powder. The deckle torn edges were inked two at a time and also heat embossed. With the sentiment I was purposely not as careful with the embossing powder to give it a more rustic look to match the design of the card. The black card stock is adhered to an A2 size Kraft card stock base. The frames are adhered with dimensional foam adhesive.
Please come around and check out the rest of the Mod Squad’s creations at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge and join us with your own Spook Us project.
