Skeletons = Love

I designed the card using this dapper skull from the Tim Holtz Undertaker collection from Stampers Anonymous and the Love stamp and die from Hero Arts.

To create the background for the skull, I used copic inks and blending solution and metallic mixative from Ranger on alcohol ink cardstock (also from Ranger). I stamped the image on top with Ranger black archival ink.

After stamping the card base with the “love” stamp in magenta hue archival ink, I die cut the “love” from some pink foam and adhered Distress Spun Sugar glitter.

To finish off the card I applied some black onyx sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and sprayed the whole card with shimmer spray.

I’ve added this to my Etsy Shop which you can see here. (Skeleton crew not included)

More Distress Glitter Flakes

For these snowflakes I put some matte medium on the wood and let it dry before putting the adhesive and glitter on to see if I could get better adhesion.  Overall, it did not make that much difference.  I used Distress Glitter in Spun Sugar, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves.

For these woodcut snowflakes I used Distress Glitter in Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers over Glossy Accents. After the first coat dried I applied a second coat to fill in some of the gaps.
