Terrific Tuesday!!! The weather is finally back to "Sunny South Florida" standards and is beautiful and a little cooler. With all of the rain over the weekend...I had time to rest my weary bones since I have been burning the candle at both ends.
So with Halloween just around the corner, I am in spooky crafting mode. And this card used Unscripted Sketches sketch #127 and features the Viva Las Vegastamps "Skeleton Dancing" #7778 using the emboss resist technique. The background began as a section of a painted book page, painted over with a mixture of white gesso, glending medium and a touch of pastel green. With a whitish background to start with, I then stamped with clear versamark ink & embossed with VLVS Ultra High Gloss Clear embossing powder. I finished by blending in various distress inks with a makeup sponge (the background was so much darker when I started, but the gesso I mixed in with the acrylic paint & blending medium really lightened things up). I inked the top hat and cane with a permanent black marker and finished off with pearl Dew Drops and some glitter stickers. This is one of my favorite stamps and Mr. Dancin' Bones just makes me giggle.
