I created this background on Glossy Photo Paper from Epson. I used alcohol inks from Ranger in the colors Black Soot, Eggplant, Cornflower and . I dripped the colors on the paper and used Ranger's Blending Solution to move the color around.
After that, I broke out a coffin from Bombshell Stamps and inked it up with VersaMark ink. I used Detail White Embossing Powder on the coffins. If you try this yourself, I highly recommend using small images that can melt quickly. You don't want to heat up those inks....they emit quite an odor that I am sure isn't very good to breathe in.
I used one of Stampendous' new border dies on the right and left sides of the background. Next I stamped a skeleton from Andy Skinner on to vellum with StazOn ink in Jet Black. I cut it out and adhered it to my background with On Point Glue from Imagine. My card base is a piece of black cardstock, and the completed size is 4 1/4"x 5 1/2."
