Medusa Card: Day 16 of 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to another installment of the 31 Days of Halloween! After yesterday’s super long (though pretty rad) post, I’ll be sure to keep this one a wee bit shorter!

Today I bring you my latest card featuring an image from Strange Skin. This is from their Cameo Collection…I give you…Medusa!


Isn’t she fabulous?  I love the huge snake that forms the cameo itself! I colored the image in using my colored pencils…in only about 4 shades…which is very minimal for me! The papers are from my stash of scraps…Basic Grey and Heidi Grace. I thought the ric-rak was a cool embellishment, since it reminded me a bit of a snake.


I added some dots of Distress Stickles in Vintage Photo and some swipes of my EK Success watercolor markers around the border of my card.


  Pssst! I heard through the grapevine that Strange Skin will be releasing some brand spankin’ new images soon! Like real soon. Like within the next couple of days. So be sure to check in with them to see what kind of twisted art the dynamic duo of Pam and Jorge has come up with now!

Pssst again! I also heard that there may just be a hidden image floating around somewhere today! Please visit Terra’s blog for all of the details!

Be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers for some more Halloweenie inspired tricks and treats…listed in my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!
