Eat, Drink and.... Be Scary!

Hey all! It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge and this one... is downright scary! :-) All you need to do is pull out your Impression Obsession stamps out and make up a Halloween card!

I chose some of the new Leigh Hannan stamps for my card. I just LOVE these little skeletons that are all ready for a party!

I stamped my skeleto n crew -- Skulls About Town -- out on Flourishes Classic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with a mix of Copics and Copic Spica pens. Add some bling, a fun ribbon side, a beautiful silk ribbon and a fun little clip with my sentiment - Eat Drink and be Scary! - and... done! For my background paper, I actually took some scraps of Halloween paper and - on the top piece - I stamped the Cover a Card Harlequin background stamp, embossing with black detail powder.

Here's a close up of those cute little skeletons! If you want to know more about the challenge and how your work could be featured on the Impression Obsession blog... just click HERE.

And, don't forget to see what the rest of the DT whipped up for this spooky challenge! ;-)

I like these! They make me think of swizzle sticks or whatever it is they put in fancy drinks. Nice holiday card with good bling. You can never go wrong with the mega curved nestabilities or black embossing.
