More Halloween goodness up tonight....or this morning. I picked out the sketch from today on the I heart 2 Stamp blog for this card. Whenever you run low on mojo, go for the sketches. There are so many wonderful sketch artists out there. I picked up the Honey Bear from my Inkadinkado stamps. Isn't he a cutie? I worked on more shading techniques for the Copic Challenge #35 going through September 30th .
For the background squares, I used Fiskar embossing folders to dry emboss spider webs. The spider web at the bottom is a Tim Holtz mask rubbed over with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
I wanted to create a white border around my stamped image and am usually unsuccessful at keeping the embossed edge of my nestabilites clean when I try to free hand it with my Copic markers. So tonight, I decided to keep the image nested inside my die and color my shaded background. After completing all the shading work, I popped out the image and had my white border.
