Day 20 of 31 for the ongoing 31 Days of Halloween Challenge! Love it!!!
Wow this is winding down or revving up? What do you think??
Please visit Terra's blog for the details of the challenge and the daily Scavenger Hunt clue for this fabulous Smeared and Smudged event. WE have some awesome sponsors and you can see them at Terra's blog.
This is also my altered playing card for week 7 in Claudine's 26 week ongoing play along for altering an entire deck of playing cards. You can see this week's inspiration HERE and to join us go to this PAGE.
I made a pair of cards today. I added some creep I think or maybe it is just haunting, not really gruesome. The inspiration prompt was a nautical theme. My stash is small and very non-nautical, mostly grungy, darkness.
Really straightforward this time. The standard sized playing cards were covered in gesso awhile ago. The Madness card has some tape embedded to add texture.
I masked the plain gesso before inking with Distress Inks. Also did some stamping. Then I removed the tape mask and stamped the angsty lady and skull.
This one is fun. Take a piece of plastic, shrink plastic, plastic from a package, any thin one will do. I have a stash of the thin sheet that come with the cling stamps so that is what I used. Emboss it using a folder. Claudine used a bubble folder which is awesome for the underwater theme. I used the Tim Holtz bubble wrap one. I love the shadows you can see on the card from the embossed layer. The line above the card is a shadow, I cut the plastic flush to the card.
I stamped the lady 3 times only inking once.
Thanks so for all your awesome time and comments!
