This week I decided to have some fun with the Easy Scraps small Skeleton set. My friends are having their Halloween party on their Anniversary, so I thought it would be fun to make a card in keeping with both themes.
I stamped the Skeleton pieces in such a way as to make it look like there are two of them, gazing into each other’s eyes and holding hands. I then cut a top hat out of black paper for the groom and added a piece of netting for the bride’s veil. The crown is a piece of the Rosette stamp from one of Easy Scrap’s new Greek rubber stamp set.
The background originally was plain white, and since I had the Skeletong images set up the way I liked them I wasn’t sure quite how to go about finishing the card. I could have scanned them and layered them over a background digitally, or cut them out and layered them over another stamped image. But then I decided to try to color using Pan Pastels. They are quick and easy to use and I was able to color around the Skeletons with not too much trouble. I think the card came out cute if I do say so myself ;-).
While I was playing around with the Pan Pastels, I had another card to make, so I used them to color in the stamped image of the little Girl. She is so sweet!
I hope you have a great week! Happy Stamping!!
