Hello, Everyone, and Happy Thursday. Is it Halloween yet? Well, if you shopped at my local grocery store, you would think it was! Seems a bit early for the Halloween candy, although to be honest, I could eat Reeses pumpkins year round. I mustered up the necessary willpower to walk past the candy, but my recent shopping trip did inspire today’s card. I am stretching my supplies by using the fun Mysterious Egypt stamp set from Penguin Palace.
I have had a small pack of cheap vellum in my stash for a long time. I never use it for cards because it’s just not the right type of vellum. I finally was able to use it for this card, though! I just ripped several strips of it to make it look like gauze, or whatever kind of bandage a mummy gets wrapped in. I layered the strips onto a piece of black card stock, only adhering them to the back. I love the texture that it created.
I stamped the mummy and coffin images and colored them with Copic markers. The matching die for the coffin is really fun because it partially cuts the center of the image to create an opening. To make that part appear more like gold, I used my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen in the Midas Touch color.
I used Versamark ink to stamp the little bug from the set onto black paper and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I made three of these and tucked a couple of them into the bandages.
The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz stamp set that I have had in my stash for a long time.
