Completely Unscripted Wednesday

The card for today is made possible by my daughter who is home sick, thereby giving me time to stay home and stamp! Since my plans have all changed for the day I thought it was only appropriate to do an Unscripted sketch. :)
halloween card in Stampin' Up!'s In Colors

stamps: two that I've had for years. Bought the skeleton to stamp on kids' hands at a preschool party 9 years ago and the face I actually bought to use as coffee beans for a project a couple years ago!
cardstock: Stampin' Up!s basic black, rich razzleberry, crushed curry, and whisper white
ink: rich razzleberry (pad and marker*), basic black
accessory: crushed curry polka-dot grosgrain ribbon

  • A little "connect the dots" doodling adds just enough detail to the background. Using the rich razzleberry marker on the same color cardstock keeps it from standing out too much.
  • the face is popped up on Stampin' dimensionals for extra emphasis
  • the card is 5-5/8"x5-1/2", nearly square!
