I have done it. I have amazed myself at how
awesome this card turned out.
This week's Macabre Monday challenge is
We are sponsored by Delicious Doodles.
Teri has a bunch of awesome images to play with.
I wanted to use them all.
I also had a birthday card to make for a friend's
daughter who is into pirates, and skulls and stuff.
I needed a card design that would accommodate all of
images I so greedily wanted to use.
Step card, here I come!
Not bad for a first try.
This is so easy to do, it's kinda stupid.
I messed it up once, despite how easy it is though.
The measurements make all of the difference.
Kinda like baking, and I suck at that too!
I cut a piece of card stock to 10.5" x 5.25".
I scored it at 1.25", 2.5", 4.25", 6", and 8.25".
I used a MS scoreboard, which made all of the
scoring much easier and less intimidating.
I just folded each step in an accordian fashion,
and it nearly made itself!
After coloring the wench, the map, and the zombie,
I fussy cut all of the images out, but the hardest to cut was
that ship silhouette. It was so worth it though.
I glittered it with black fine glitter, and added some chunkier
blue glitter beneath it like the deep blue sea. Backed with a big
vellum moon really finished it all off and added some
stability for the ship and it's delicate cuts.
My favorite image of all is this incredible
He's available today in Teri's shop,
Just a quick peek into my madness.
What ISN'T on my workdesk Wednesday is more like it!
When I tell people I am a stay at home Mom, they almost
always say, "How do you do it? Don't you get bored?"
Umm, no... I'm always making something.
Usually, many things at once. I am an artiste!
This is my first attempt at sgraffito. I plan to cover the entire
skull with flourishes and schtuff and then add neon accents
with 3D paints before firing. The skull will be all black.
Slow and steady, but it's coming along.
