Voor mijn eerste blogpost op deze foamtastisch blog heb ik gekozen voor 2 mediums.
Distress oxide voor de achtergrond en de klassieke distress inkt voor de Indigoblu stempel.
Langs de rand van de kaart heb ik met distressink oranje en bruin hier en daar wat gesponst.
Inmiddels is de stempel droog en kan je hem uitsnijden of knippen. Lijm hem in het midden op de achtergrond. Geef hem wat schaduw met de Oxide ground espresso.
En nu dan de tekst, ik heb die gestempeld met de Distress oxide ground espresso.
Craft emotions heeft een serie met verschillende alfabetten. Ik vind ze helemaal geweldig. Ik kan heerlijk zelf mijn teksten samenstellen, en omdat ze clear zijn kan ik ook zo makkelijk de positie bepalen, ideaal.
Ik hoop dat jullie het leuk vonden.

Hallo dear reader.
Do you already have the creeps for Halloween?
Distress ink walnut stain - frayed burlap - antique linen.
Stazon timber brown, jet black.
Alcohol ink caramel and mushroom.
Viva decor inka gold, gold brown and gold.
Dark brown acrylic paint.
Small sponge, paint brush.
Glue and hot glue gun.
Water based markers (zig/tombo), dark brown, shades of beige, dark and light grey.
Sizzix sizzlits docorative strip die, Ironwork gate.
Fake cobweb and some embellishments.
I used the little rum bottle, a pirate sword, pumpkin, metal charm skull.
Moss, make sure it is dry.
Cut and score your cardboard like this photo.
Take the aluminium foil and wrinkle it.
Don't flatten it but keep it a little bumpy.
Glue it on the cardboard with a glue gun.
Paint it dark brown with acrylic paint.
And make sure it is dry.
The metal charm needs a little sanding and gesso or any primer will do.
Let it dry thoroughly.
Colour the charm with the alcohol ink, until it looks rusty.
Stamping the goth shrine.
Now take the stamping tool, and the watercolor paper.
We proceed as follows,
- stamp with distress antique linen the entire stamp.
- repeat this with the frayed burlap, but now only some pieces of the stamp.
- And for the last step you take the dark brown marker and use it direct on the stamp.
But its only for the shadows, so I did it on the edges and corners of the stamp.
It is time to color in the accents and details with the markers and the waterpencil.
I was going for a weathered wood look.
If you want a stone look then you can do it with grey tones.
Now its time to stamp the big skeleton parts.
The upper and lower arm pieces, each 1 time.
Both hands 2 time, so there are 4 hands.
And 2 skulls.
When you cut out the parts, leave a piece of extra paper.
This is necessary to glue them together.
Now comes the tricky part.
Assemble the skeleton so that it looks like he wants to steel the charm.
Glue all parts on.
Cut of the remaining pieces of paper.
Die cut the fence and color it with the distressink as shown on the picture.
I coloured the skull and hands that rise up from the grave a bit darker.
After all, they have been buried in the ground for a long time.
Now we are going to put it all together.
Fold the narrow side back and glue together.
Glue the headstone to the front.
I made a little cardboard support on the backside.
Glue the skull and hands on the grave.
Take pieces of the fence and glue them on the sides.
Glue on the moss and your embellishments.
Stamp the bird on bike with black stazon and cut of the crow.
Glue it on the tombstone.
With a black piece of paper you can make an eye patch for the skull.
And don't forget to join our challenge, we love to see your cards and projects.
And you can win a very nice prize.
This pirates grave is playing along with the monthly challenge at Sandee & Amelie's steampunk challenge.

Hi there, Riet here with another jukebox card.
For this card I used the LCD Birds in tree's background stamp,
and the Jukebox from Carmens Veranda.
I actually made this background for another card.
But it was not so suitable for that card and I had not used it.
So I found it very suitable for the vintage jukebox.
I made the background with destress glaze resist.
And distress Walnut stain and Antique linen.
I colored the jukebox with watercolor paint.
I did the metal parts with a silver pen.
Those parts seem to be made of chrome.
Too bad it cannot be seen in the photo.
Add some accents with the white gel pen, then cut out and glue on.
Hope you enjoyd the card. Dont forget to join our challenge.

Hi everybody, I made this arrow card for the mancave challenge over at the LCD/CV blog.
Now here is how I made it.
Black acrylic paint
Rust colored acrylic paint
Viva Decor inkagold, Ice blue
Distress oxide spekled egg
Distress oxide black soot
I drew a large arrow from a piece of cardboard for the background.
With a diamond plate stencil and modeling paste on the cardboard.
After drying for a while, I painted it black with acrylic paint.
After that I just hit the top with a sponge and inkagold Ice blue so only the diamonds are touched by the spunge.
With some rust-colored paint that I diluted with water,
I made some rusty spots here and there.
I sponged the small arrow with distress oxide speckled egg and with Distress oxide black soot I made some stains on it.
With a marker I wrote "man cave" on it.
I added a bit of black to the edge of the small arrow.
I colored the jukebox with markers.
And I did the tubes of the jukebox in Fluor colors.
I attached the small arrow and jukebox with 3d tape so that they are slightly higher.
Well this was the explanation for the Man cave card.
Now come on over and show us your take on the mancave challenge.
We love to see your gorgeus cards and makes.
Dont forget to read the challenge rules.
