Prickley Pear Day 2

(right now this card is being featured on the PPRS blog)

Grim Reaper Card

Paper Solid: Black- DCWV, Grey-ColorMates, Red-Papertrey Ink, White-Neenah
Paper Patterned: GCD Studios
Tools: Copics (R29, W1, BV23 and blender), Pearl White Smooch, EK Success Chalks, Perfect Layers rulers, Memories ink, Dove Grey StazOn, Pop-dots, VersaMark, Hero Arts White Embossing powder and black threaded sewing machine

I cut down the grey paper to make a 6x6 card. I also cut down the pattern paper to 5x12 long enough so it wraps around to the back of the card, I glued and sewed that paper to the grey card. I stamped the reaper in Memories ink on white paper and colored him with the Copics. I also stamped the "coffee ring stamp" in Dove grey on the white (and made it look like a moon). I mounted the stamped image to a piece of red paper and then all of it on a piece of black paper (using my Perfect Layers rules to get the border perfect). I used the chalks to rub on the stamped paper and make it look like there are clouds. After the clouds were done, I cut apart a halloween spooky tree ATC PP Transparency and glued that onto the card (cutting around the stamped image). I took a pencil eraser and erased the very edge of the white portion of the card to add a little white border.

For the saying I cut a piece of black paper the width of the reaper image and stamped the saying with VersaMark and embossed it using white embossing powder. I mounted that using pop-dots to the very edge of the reaper image.

Before I glued down the stamped image I cut a small slit in the top of the card to feed the ribbon though it. Tied the ribbon in a knot at the bottom of the card.

I used pop-dots in all 4 corners of the layered grimm reaper image, and stuck that whole panel down to the top center of the card. To finish it off I edged the whole grey card in memories black ink.
