Rest Your Bones! Diggin' up this cute card
using Unscripted Sketches #127

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.

What is Sketch it Saturdays at Unscripted Sketches? Every Saturday morning a new sketch is posted for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way, as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation! And everyone is invited to join in the fun...and post your creation on their page for all the world to see!

Now that we have some slightly cooler weather {only around 90}, it's actually starting to get below 80 at night...this is fall in south Florida. Keep a lookout for some upcoming posts in addition to Unscripted Sketches - I am now on the Viva Las Vegastamps and now Amazing Mold Putty Design Teams, too. Have a great week!!!
