Hello everyone! Here is card number two of the March class I will be teaching at China Phoenix. This card uses another beautiful set of stamp images by Bombshell Stamps called Altar Skulls. I love the sugar skull with the candles behind him and felt this cried out for some attention from my Spica Glitter Pens. I added lots of subtle glitter accents after I colored the image with Copic markers. It is hard to catch a glimpse of the glitter in these photos, but it's there...trust me! I kept embellishments to a minimum on this card as the image really is the focal point. The oval panel the image is sitting on has been distressed with lots of Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Ink, plus a crackle stamp cube by Stamper's Anonymous. This cube is fabulous and offers a crackle stamp image in 4 degrees of crackle. I keep this stamp handy and use it one way or another on lots of projects. It just adds a little some'in, some'in...if you know what I mean.
I need one more sample for the March class, so cross your fingers for me and check back to see if I have come up with one :) BTW, I hope your Valentine's Day has been filled with lots of your favorite things, whether that's chocolate, roses, champagne or all the above ;D
