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.
