Ghouls ~SOUS October 14, 2011~


Hey all! Today is post day for Stuck on U Sketches and there is so much to share! First off, hosting this spooky month of September is our sinful sister, Nanne. However due to a goof by, month sketches will be by me instead of Nanne (next month, I'll do text, you can enjoy her sketches). So anyways, LOL, some of you gals had requested some CAS sketches and so that's what I made. For as simple as it may appear, you'll had to check out SOUS though and see the cool interpretations the ladies did! 

And a bit more news...exciting news...we have a wonderful new designer joining us at SOUS for sketches. You can find Melissa here! Please do go by and say HELLO! We think you will all enjoy her and her style is beyond cool! Check her out!

And onto my page...this was certainly a time consuming one. So I'll just say's gonna be a lost post.

So starting here at the base of my card. Using the Gyspy I welded together a bunch of Halloween images. Tombstones, ghosts, pumpkins, hats, skulls and more. Then I randomly smooshed Versamark over this and used UTEE. Then stamped with a distress like random ink spot stamp and embossed with black embossing powder. The edges were also inked in black. 

This is my first time using the font from Happy Hauntings and oh my! The thrill factor is pretty great! I cut a red shadow and popped the black and added Glossy Accents to all the drips...eeew! I also inked in a few gruesome shades on the frame and randomly used UTEE on the edges, and distressed. Very, very neat IRL. (I also and totally ridiculously cut out a couple teeny spiders out of printed paper and added them onto the beyond!)

There's always a creative mishap, right? Well try die cutting with Grungepaper, inking black and then covering in Versamark with UTEE....can someone say, bubbles? It just so happens the nastiness just added to the spider! Nice! And check out that super big butt bling! (I'm in a mood...forgive me!)

The fussy cut skull is from DCWV newest holiday stack. I added some staples (ouch!) and added the stamped text. Another detail you can't see is the glitter pen I outlined his teeth in.

Also hand cut this beautiful bottle. All I did was add the swirl stamp and embossed with black powder. And I added some pearls to the swirls.

Another cut bottle with sanded edges to show the white core. I used a embossing pen and black powder to add detail to the spider, and added gems. The pumpkins are from Happy Hauntings. And another nasty spider.

Did you think it was never going to end? LOL! Hope that wasn't too bad but I really did so much that I wanted to share it all! You know how it goes...So thank you so much for coming by and if you're not too tired from this go by SOUS and check out the other (not creepy) pages! Later ladies!
