I had to have the Halloween Cuddlebug stamps by Tierra Jackson that Unity Stamp Co just came out with. I love the Cuddlebugs to begin with and these are simply adorable. I love that several of them have sentiments that can be used for other things besides Halloween. This mummy is the perfect example
Isn't he the cutest. I colored everything with Prismacolor pencils. I used the warm grays for the mummy and the background. The spider is the darkest cool gray and the outline was sepia. Everything was blended with Gamsol. The sentiment is stamped in Archival Distress Hickory Smoke.
I really wanted to make a mummy wrap background for this image. I took my cue from his wrap and just used a fine tip pen to draw some lines. I used the same warm gray pencils and Gamsol to color it in. I made the edge a bit curvy and cut along it so that it was slightly smaller than an A2 card.
Last week, I made a card using the Count. He is just has fun and versatile as the mummy.
My friend Echo makes the most amazing cards and I had to use her Distress Oxide blended background and make one of my own for the Count. I just used a circle die to make a mask for the circle. Distress Oxides used: Fossilized Amber, Stormy Skies, Black Soot.
cape-All over with C3, then I used BV23 and BV 25 over that.
