Hi everyone unbelievable that it is already October. That means a new challenge over at Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. This month the theme is Halloween. One of my favorite holidays even though I don't have the trick or treaters like in the past. Here is my first challenge entry.
My background for my stamped images was so fun to do. I took a piece of cardboard and cut it to size. Then applied a heavy layer of gesso and placed pieces of cut up cheesecloth. in the wet gesso. I then took my brayer and rolled over to make sure the cheesecloth was down tight. I made sure the cheesecloth went on the sides of the cardboard to cover the brown edges.
For the mummy I took athletic tape and placed it on a scrap of card stock. Because the tape hides what is underneath you could even use a piece which you goofed up stamping on. ;-) I'm all about being frugal. I then stamped with Jet Black Stazon ink. I used a blue glaze pen for the eye which is peeking out. I could have stamped on plain white cardstock but the tape adds a little more texture and I'm all about texture. :-)
The bats and cat were stamped on deli paper. I used black Memento ink for the bats but went with the Stazon for the cat as the texture of the inkpad shows up on deli paper. Once again I used a glaze pen to color the eyes.
There you have it my first Halloween card. I hope you will join in the challenge. Details can be found here:
I am also entering this in the monthly mixed media challenge.
Off to look for some crafting supplies which have gone missing in action. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
