Howl You Gonna Act?
Yippee, it's Tuesday, I can howl with the Midnight Madness crew. The full moon will be here tomorrow so I can howl again tomorrow. That leaves about twenty-five other days this month that there's no accounting for my bad behavior. Oh well...
So for sketch challenge MMSC13 I used the Inkadinkado (I wish I had come up with that name, it is my absolute favorite brand name ever, stick around this blog long enough you'll expect to read something like that every time I use this brand) Rock Star stamp set. I stamped the image in Versamark on beige card stock and embossed it with black powder. I ripped the paper, made a black mat and ripped that one up too, then made a gray mat that I ripped up. I used some note shaped eyelets for embellishments. Little side story on the bellies. Last year for my b-day, buddy Eileen (aka Hazel) gave me a bag of eyelets. There were probably over a thousand eyelets in a bag, all mixed up. I spent hours separating them, way too many hours, I was like a lunatic, I stayed up till 4 in the morning separating them. I've had them for a year and I'm finally using some of them. Woohoo, I knew I'd get to them sooner or later, now I've only got about 993 to go, but I digress.
The background paper is from creative imaginations. If I had it to do over again, and actually I do, I would rip the square too but I punched them out with Stampin' Up punches. I wasn't too sure I'd have enough control of the rips to get the skull portions for the squares and that I'd get them sized to fit on the card.
This is a fun stamp set to make a card for a teenager, I'm gonna try it out on mine.
