Always a Lady

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!  It's Day 31 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween!  Can you believe it's already THE best day of the year?  My how the month has flown by.  Later today, I'm going to transform myself into a wickedly fun witch and celebrate the night with family and friends.  It's been incredibly busy of late so I'm looking forward to a night of relaxation.  

In honor of this most auspicious of days, I'm sharing my scariest of Stampendous Halloween cards.  I absolutely love this stamp, she's called Skeleton Lady.  She's incredibly elegant in a spooky cool way.  I love the Victorian style dress and I can just picture her walking down a street in the French Quarter of New Orleans!  Of course, if you look at the postal information, the address is French, very fitting!

Here's what I used to create this card:



Chameleon™ Markers (NU1, RD4, Y03, CG8)
Tim Holtz® Black Soot Distress Ink by Ranger®
Black Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Red Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
ZipDry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives™

Here's what I did to create this card:

Stamp image and color with markers.
Trim image closely all around.
Add black distress ink all around image.
Distress edges with scissors and add additional distress ink.
Trim a mat for image from black cardstock.
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold.
Adhere all layers.
Add red micro glitter to dress.
Mix fragments and glass glitters and adhere to edges, tap off excess.

Set aside to dry.

So, I hope you are as in love with the Skeleton Lady as I am!  Now, go forth and Trick or Treat!
