The Frankensteins

We are hopping over at Viva Las VegaStamps! and our theme is famous monsters, fun right?!!



Here is our awesome line up!



*Michele Kosciolek*




I created a card duo to share with you featuring the Frankenstein's.


I used Frankenstein's Bolts and Bride of Frankenstein  for these cards.


With my Gelli Plate and Dina Wakely paints (cheddar and tangerine) I created the background using a couple of mixed media stamps.  (Six staples, stitching, staple X,  tape X, grunge circles


Monsters are stamped in archival ink and colored with Distress Markers.


The frames are cut from chipboard with a Tim Holtz die, painted black with accents of white crackle paint and some Distress Ink.


Finishing touches are Um Wow Studios chipboard ravens, Bazzill and Authentique papers and some Tim Holtz alphas.

I just love Halloween for creating!!  Bright colors and grunge together, it doesn't get any better than that.


Make sure to get to all the design team members blogs and see what they have up their sleeves, then back to VLVS! and let us know your favorite thing about Halloween.  Leave some love too, because there will be a prize up for grabs!!

Until next time...GET INKY!
