I Want My Mummy


A wonderful crafty friend of mine, Tim, posted a link and told me to take a look at the Just Ink Lined challenge. When I spoke to him over the weekend, he was telling me all about digital stamping, extolling their virtues and I had to admit to having never tried them.

So here is another first (there seems to be quite a few of those recently). I printed the image of the Mummy out and with my promarkers, added the colour. I trimmed the Mummy out and thought about how to use it. I guessed that it was meant for Halloween so, though it's not such a big event in the UK, I made an attempt to create a card for it.

Materials List:
Paper/Card: Black & Dark Grey (from scraps), Grey (DCWV)
Stamps: Just Ink Lined
Dies: Spellbinders
Other: Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Promarkers, Black Fibre, Glitter glue

Brilliant, Paul - love the way you've used that image, though I have to protest here - you can NOT call it a STAMP!!! It's flipping clip art and digital art - now come on, lol. It has its own place but it certainly ain't stamping!!! Will argue with you when I next see you, he, he!
