Blood Curdling

Oh I had so much fun making this card. I know it's a bit gruesome... but I still love it. I haven't had a whole lot of time to create lately. I think I say that in every post. With two kids on different schedules, commuting over 100 miles (back and forth many times) to and from school everyday, and a hubby that is in the middle of seeding, this girl is running in too many directions. I keep telling myself that things will slow down soon, but I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel coming anytime soon.

Back on track... I just LOVE this stamp set. I'm addicted to skulls. Funny that I didn't use that stamp for this card though. I think this was my third attempt at the design. The first two didn't have any blood spatter, and I think that totally makes it. I think the icing on the cake is the Crystal Effects that was applied to each droplet. Yes, it was a bit time consuming but it added another dimension to the card. If you haven't noticed, I like LOTS and LOTS of layers and embellishments.

I can't wait to send these out for Halloween!

  1. I think you've outdone yourself with this card--it's GREAT! As much as I love the outside...I think the INside is just as awesome!
