Ol' Bag O' Bones!

Hi friends!! It's skeletons/bones day here on our blog hop! I have a stamp from Natalie VonRaven to share with you today, it's called The Joker.

To make this card: cut a piece of black cardstock and adhere it to the front of your card base. Cut a triangle of pink patterned paper and adhere that to the front of your card (for this one I used the left over paper I had from yesterday's card!) 

Next, stamp and color your image and then use an ink applicator and Vintage Photo Distress ink to age the background of the image if desired. I sprayed the entire image with my home made glimmer mist to give it a nice shimmer. Mat the stamped image with black cardstock and green patterned paper and use a border punch on the green. 

For the bones embellishment, I used an arm for a skeleton I had left over from our Coffin contest and some ribbon. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Please hop over to Janie's for your next stop!
