A Skeleton's Cure?

Hiya folks! Have you seen the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween line? It's delicious!

I used a sticky canvas sheet for the background and MME Halloween papers for the rest. The skeleton is a Tim Holtz stamp that was stamped, cut with a teeny tiny blade, and embossed with clear powder.

I used Glossy Accents on both the potion bottles on front and the skull inside. It's a nice and creepy effect! The black paper swirl on the right edge is cut with a Sizzix On The Edge die and roughed up with Picket Fence Distress Stain and brown ink.

Of course there's a gift box to go along with it!

This is the second time I used a wee blade to cut the skeleton. I swore last time that I wasn't going to do it again... Eh, whatever! It was much easier this time and I'm glad I took it on. :) Speaking of glad, I do love having the card fold on the left edge. It is taking a little time to get used to, though. What do you think? Can you imagine your cards on the left?

Thanks for stopping in today!

Cheers, Susan

And I love THIS, too. I can't believe you cut out that skeleton with a wee blade. Kudos, it turned out amazing.
