It's All About The Bones....

......Funny Bones that is!! Bright and dancing Funny Bones from Emerald Creek!! 

It is that time again, the Halloween blog release from our design team at Emerald Creek Craft Supplies!

I'm not a Halloween decorating/creating kind of person.....usually. But this Funny Bones stamp from Emerald Creek is so awesome. I didn't go creepy scary Halloween, I went more fun and cheery Halloween, if there is such a thing.

I started with an 8X8 piece of cardstock, stamped the very cool Spider Web image and embossed in clear. Then swiped my Black Soot Distress Ink over that to color everything but the spiderwebs. Mixed some texture paste with a bit of Spiced Marmalade Distress paint and used a Dylusions stencil to add some skulls.

I used my Black Soot to go over some of the spiced marmalade skulls, just to add a creepy touch.

I stamped a number of images of Funny Bones in Tiger Lily and Violet, and yes, I did the fussy cutting again!! LOL Added some words, added my bones and voila...a Halloween design, which I think I'll put on my front door!
