When I first saw this new Nature's Skeleton Stamp Set from Whimsy Stamps I was absolutely positively going to make a masculine autumny themed card and then this happened. What's going on with me and halloween cards? I've got a load made for upcoming releases and that is so not me. I blame it on the ink blending kick I'm on, who woulda thought I would go from pretty and pastels to this? Though pretty and pastels are still my first love ha!
So, I started off by inking a piece of Bristol Smooth with Twisted Citron in the centre, moving out to Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn and then finishing off with Black Soot. Once the panel was dry I stamped the Natures Skeleton with Memento Tuxedo Black in a sort of pattern, used my favourite Wonky Stitched Rectangles Die Set to cut the centre and card panel out, then layered the centre on to black card and popped that up with foam tape.
I stamped that CUTE cat from the Got Peepers Stamp Set and coloured the eyes to match the background then fussy cut it out. I die cut the BOO using the Bold ABC Die Set from black and white card so I could put a white shadow behind the word to make it stand out and finished off with a sentiment from the the Sleepy Hollow stamp set, and some tiny bats from the Bats & Bubbles border die set
