Strolling Skeletons: Day 14 of 31

Greetings! It's Day 14 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today I have a card featuring the Strolling Skeletons Stamp from Stampendous.

I stamped the image with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black. With all of those small details, I couldn't imagine using any other ink for this stamp. I then colored it in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I kept the palette simple and stuck to greens, oranges, purples, and grays.

I felt that the background was too stark to leave white, so I rubbed on Desert Sand Memento Ink to tone down the white. And I like the effect the ink pad gives to the paper, which is Canson's Mixed Media. I trimmed the image down and rounded the corners.

I made my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock from My Colors and sprinkled on Spoonful of Midnight around the edge. You've got to heat this from underneath, since there's no embossing medium holding it on temporarily. That's it for me today. This was a pretty quick card, once the coloring was complete.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.

The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
