It's SKULL-tastic

OK...I'm a bit of a nut for Halloween.  I love, love, love it!!! I have been stockpiling Halloween crafting supplies for the last few months just waiting for a chance to use them.  Up until yesterday I had only made one card.  Last night I got all my supplies together and started thinking up some new designs for this year.  I popped over to the Kraftin' Kimmie blog and this weeks challenge....SKULL-tastic.  The skull doesn't have to be in the stamp, just somewhere on the project.  Although oodles of their stamps have skulls on them. Although funnily enough with about 35+ of their stamps I only have 2 that have skulls on them...I think I may have to remedy that soon LOL.  Well since I used one of those stamps for last weeks challenge I decided to break out my Voodoo Lady stamp....I've been wanting to use her for awhile now and just haven't had the this was perfect.

I stamped her with black memento ink and colored her with copic markers (E02, 11, 21, 25, 27, 29, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47 & 50 - W1, 2, 4, 6, & 8 - YG91, 93, 95 & 97).  I added some white gel pen to her tooth belt and some clear star glitter pen to her bead belt and the smoke rising out of the skull.  You can't really see it in the first picture.  Also I added some green perfect pearls to her dress which shows up better in the light.  I embellished a few areas with a green star dust pen and a sepia multi liner.   The skull on the striped paper is from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween stamp set and I used memento espresso truffle ink. The patterned paper is all from the Carte Bella "All Hallow's Eve" 6x6 paper pad.  All the papers are edged in midnight black versa magic chalk ink.  The decorative edge under the skull paper was made using a fiskars edge punch.  The greeting which is normally one long line is stamped with archival black ink. I added a little more detail to the card with some brads a rhinestone.
I can't wait to get back in my studio and make some more Halloween cards!!! Happy Friday everyone and thanks for visiting my blog.
