Topping off the Details

Main image is a Smeared Ink Rubber Club set.  This stamp is from the set Morbidly Adorable Tarot (Jan 2014) and can be seen in the Rubber Club Past Offerings.

I inked the stamp with Versa Mark Ink.  
Stamped onto foil, found in my kitchen drawer.
Used Pearl Ex colors and paint brush to color in image.
Used Crystal Effects over entire image.

Once dry, I inked up stamp again with Archival Black Ink.
Re-stamped over first image on top of dried Crystal Effects.
Used Butterscotch Alcohol Ink and Blendabilities (alcohol markers) to go over areas in image to help stand out a bit.
Adhered finished foil piece to Basic Black card stock.

Adhered ribbon (from Michael's) to back.
Once done adhered finished piece to top of lid.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
