I had so much fun making this card! I just got these cool skeleton stamps from Stampin' Up! and I couldn't wait to break into them...
I used the Glowing Image Technique for the main image here, and then used the Pearlized Gesso Technique for the Background. Both techniques are from the August 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I stenciled a little red ink over the gessoed pearls just to make them a little more "flourishy."
It's a little hard to see, but the eyes and teeth were colored with a glittery marker -- and the red stars along the sides are crystal. For some reason I just couldn't get all the shimmer, shine and glimmer to show in any of my pictures.
My 15-y/o son told me that this card is HOT... When you are making teen cards, there is no better compliment!
