Anyway, moving on, it's my turn to host a post at Airless Chambers, where we share some of Rick St Dennis's darker images. I managed to get a bit of time in my craft room yesterday evening to finish a card that I started on Friday when it was still warm and sunny! I've decided that it's not too early to make a start on next year's Halloween collection:
Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Smiley Bill the Monster Clown; Winnie & Walter - Moonlight
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Soft Sky, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango; Versamark
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Tangerine Tango; Graphic 45 DP - Rare Oddities; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; White and Clear Embossing Powders
I know that many people like clowns and actually enjoy watching them. But I really, really don't like them much - and when they look like Smiley Bill here, I like them even less! I think he makes a wonderful zombie clown! I printed him on white card, coloured him with Copic markers, cut him out and added a subtle shimmer to all his greenish skin. I used tangerine card to make the base and stamped some spiders webs at the corners, embossing them with clear powder to give a tone-on-tone effect. I cut a piece of purple design paper, stamped on some more spiders webs and embossed them with white powder. I adhered the panel to the card, attached the clown and finished with a simple sentiment. I also added a couple of little spiders in the webs. On the inside I cut a panel of white card, stamped on a greeting and added a few more spiders webs.
I used the colours from this week's Colour Q challenge - cQc#317, as I think they're just perfect for a Halloween card!
If you want to get a head start on next year's Halloween cards, then may I suggest a visit to Rick's Zibbet shop where he has hundreds of images from cute to down right scary!!
I'm not planning on going out at all today - well, I'll have to clear the drive, but apart from that I'm staying indoors and playing in my craft room. Be safe. Thanks so much for dropping by, see you soon.
Oh yeah, Smiley Bill is EXTRA creepy LOL!! BUT you've colored him perfectly Deborah, this is a terrific card!! Thanks for joining us at ColourQ!
