Skeleton Shaker Card

Happy Monday! 

Today is the 3rd Muse Monday at Bombshell Stamps Blog.  If you haven't seen the last 2 Monday's inspiration, I definitely recommend checking those blog posts out too!

So, since it's still October, the Muse Set is still Calaveras Fiesta.  I've said it before and I'll say it again... I *loooooove* this stamp set!  I love skulls and skeletons and this set features 2, that's right - not 1 but 2 skeleton stamps!  And there's also some fun hats in this set that you can put on them!

Here's a card I made with this set:

So, the skeleton laying down was stamped in Tsukineko Memento Ink in London Fog, colored with Copics and fussy cut out with scissors.  I think if I made this card again, I'd stick with the Tuxedo Black ink because I feel that this skeleton is a little too light for this card.

For the middle of the card, I used my eBosser and a die to cut out the shape. The orange and purple flowers are Spellbinders dies that were also cut with the eBosser.

The waving skeleton was stamped on clear acetate with Staz-On Ink in Jet Black.  (I just reused a little piece of plastic packaging I had. )  I used the purple and orange pumpkin cut outs from the Spellbinders die and put them behind the skeleton to make a little shaker card.  (Here's a past tutorial on how I did the shaker part.)

Please take a look at some other great inspiring projects using this set over at the Bombshell Stamps Blog!
