31 DOH - Day 29

I can not believe it, Day 29!  You all are wonderful, thank you so much for hanging in there with us.  To start from the beginning, see daily winners, and for more info check out Terra's Blog.

You are now here at Shoni aka Crafty Inknik's and should have just left Roni's blog.  Jenn is next on the Wicked Blogger list, that is on your left if you just joined us.  Big shout out to Smeared Ink and the Smeared and Smudged Forum for hosting this 31 Days of Halloween event.  And a HUGE THANKS to all the Sponsors who have been so generous all month long.

One of those fabulous sponsors needs no introduction, Rick St. Dennis.  His wonderful, fun, and creative drawings are inspirations themselves.  I have used four images from a digi set called Aliens and Mutants.  When I first saw this set I wanted to make a Waterfall Card using some of these characters.  Finally got around to it!  So, X's & O's (kisses and hugs) to all of you from each of them.

Orbiting Details
Images were printed on to Neena paper.  Each was colored in with Copic's, and fussy cut.
Stamp with 'XOXO', Stampin' Up! set called Oh, Goodie!, was stamped onto Whisper White card stock (cs) with Basic Gray ink.  Ink pad with the four colors was pressed directly onto stamped squares.
Finished images were then adhered with dimensionals.
Crystal Effects used on each image to add more dimensions and other worldly shine.

Large background
Background stamp, Chevron (SU!) was inked with different colors.
I then used Basic Gray ink on one side of the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I used the Kissing Technique of pressing the inked side of the folder onto the inked background stamp.  Then, I stamped onto my large Whisper White cs.
Different inks where then pressed onto stamped cs to fill in the white areas.

Basic Black cs used for card base, matte, and the pull/flip piece.
3 Basic Black Glitter Brads used.
Fibers from stash for pull end.
1" Circle punch to hold pull end fibers and brad.

In the last pic, I am going to write my message with the White Chalk marker.
All materials used are Stampin' Up! and are current unless otherwise noted.
