Stampendous Spooky!

It’s Day 17 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween.  Are you getting sufficiently spooked yet?  Today I have the Stampendous Raven Skull stamp for your viewing scariness!  I really love this stamp since it’s got all the basic elements for you, a background and a focus image all in one. 

Here’s what I used to create this card:


Chameleon™Markers (BK4, YO3, OR4)
Copic® Markers (E40, YR30, Y21)
Black Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Gold Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Tim Holtz® Black Soot Distress Ink by Ranger®
ZipDry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives™

Here’s what I did to create this card:

Stamp image and color, trim closely and add distress ink.
Sprinkle embossing powder on image and heat from beneath paper.
Trim a mat from black cardstock and adhere image to front.
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold and adhere matted image to front.
Mix color fragments and glitter and adhere randomly around card front, shake of excess.
Set aside to dry.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you’ve enjoyed my creepy cool card!  Enjoy the remaining 31 days of Halloween!  Here are some links that should answer all your questions and maybe even inspire you to play along!
