My post for today is:
A little more Halloween fun, that uses more Glue Dots than you think.
Small, Die Cut Skull (I used my Silhouette to cut a file I purchased from their store)
Black Card Stock
White Card Stock Base
Nonstick Craft Sheet
1) Stamp the image on Mixed Media Paper
2) Color the image with pencils. The background was colored first with Imperial Purple for the top and Copenhagen Blue for the bottom. Then, it was burnished with Cool Grey 30%. The crow was colored with Black first and then burnished on parts with Metallic Silver. His beak is Yelllow Ochre. The skull was Black and Cool Grey 20% and burnished with white. The leaves were Orange, Neon Green, Chartruese and Dark Brown.
3) Use the tapestry needle to poke a hole in the top of the die cut skull.
4) Use the Removable Glue Dots to adhere the die cut skull to the craft sheet. (Otherwise, the little skull will get blown all over the place when you try to heat emboss it.)
5) Tap the skull with Clear Embossing Ink.
6) Cover with Opaque White Embossing Powder.
7) Carefully remove the skull with the craft knife and move it to another location on the craft sheet, gently shaking it to remove any excess powder.
8) Heat emboss the powder.
9) Repeat steps 5-8.
10) Cut the twine into two pieces and adhere one end of each piece around the back of the project with Craft Glue Dots.
11) Adhere the image to the black card stock.
12) Apply one Craft Glue Dot under the area where the bow will be and press the twine into it, leaving a 3-4 inch length of twine on either side.
13) Tie the twine into a knot.
14) Remove the skull from the craft sheet and use the tapestry needle to thread it onto a small piece of embroidery floss.
15) Tie the embroidery floss around the knot.
16) Tie the twine into a bow.
17) Place Mini Glue Dots in several spots under the bow and twine to attach to the background and press down.
18) Use Mini Glue dots to press the skull down onto the background.
19) Attach the card top to the base with Glue Dots.
I live with my husband and my very spoiled collie in Michigan. I enjoy scrapbooking because I feel like it is both a way to preserve memories and create art. I love being on the Dreamweaver Design Team because I can explore techniques using these exquisite stencils and work with a group of wonderful teammates. I previously enjoyed working on the sparkling teams of both Art Glitter and Connie Crystals. I have also served on the Globecraft Memories Design Team, and completely addicted to their 3D Enamel Gels. I appeared in the Dec/Jan 2011 edition of The Stampers Sampler, The 2011 Catch Up Issue. and the April 2011 Stamp & Scrap Arts.
