Macabre Monday "Bare Bones" Challenge
WooHoo, look at me! Usually I'm part of the "B" Team at Haunted Design House but here I am posting the first week of the challenge. This fortnight the challenge is "Bare Bones" which means CAS (clean and simple), no (or very minimal) embellies. RESTRAIN yourself! Normally this is not my kinda style, but because I DO find it such a challenge, I've been dabbling quite a bit lately. The cool thing is if you manage an idea, these projects are soooo much quicker to execute. Although not required, I immediately thought of skellies (you know, the "bones" reference) and remembered the fabby dancing ones from De Stemplewinkel. The Trees with Crows completed the scene. Wow, TWO rubber stamps on this! Will wonders never cease? Anyway, once they were stamped, I masked off the bottom of the card (one layer no less, go me!) and used a Nesties circle as a mask for the moon and sponged a bit of Stormy Sky Distress ink. Removed the masks, drew a line with my Micron pen to separate the design and ran it through the printer for my sentiment. DONE! See, how easy? Now it's your turn. More fab inspiration from at least half the Minions HERE.
I'm also entering this in the Left of Center Challenge 2 where it's Anything Goes if it's LOC, Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes, Simon Says Stamp and Show (Very Strict) Anything Goes (LOL) and the Outlawz Sunday CAS Challenge which is Anything Goes.
