Where's My Mummy? 41

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 19, 2009 @ 11:40 AM | , , ,

Happy Saturday Ladies! I have some last minute errands to run before my party tonight but I wanted to share my lil' Mummy card & tags with you :) I combined 3 different challenges to make this gift set: 1. For sketch inspiration: Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #98 2. For color inspiration: Samantha's Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Challenge #15, SPCC15 & 3. The Pile It On #15 - Color Pop, where I had to use 3 colors, 2 of which had to be black & white. Hop on over to all 3 of these sites for endless inspiration of creativity!!! Isn't he the cutest lil' Mummy you've ever seen? Be Sweet!

I made this set for Connor, my step son. He looooves plain Hershey's bars!!

This lil' Mummy stamp cost $1 at Michael's craft store! What a bargain!! I have just been lovin' the brayer technique lately! It just creates a cool effect & you can easily make your own colored textured DP!!!

I inked up the Mummy image with VersaMark ink, stamped him, them embossed with black embossing powder. To create sort of a shadow around him & make him pop off the piece of white paper, I outlined him with the Copic W3 marker & blended with the Copic 0 Colorless blender.

The pail was another bargain that I found at Michael's. It cost $1.5o! It holds a 12 ounce bag of candy bars!

Ingredients Used: Stamps: Recollections Mummy, PTI Spooky Sweet II Paper: SU Really Rust, Basic Black, Whisper White, My Mind's Eye DP Ink: VersaMark, SU Basic Black Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle nestie, Quickutz tag dies, EK Success punches, generic twine, brads & embossing powder, Cuttlebug Diamond Plate EF, Offray ribbon, Basic Grey buttons
