DDSC1Whimsical Wednesdays has Begun!

I am so excited! Twinkling Tuesday's Team has begun! But, the team has a new name and post date: Whimsical Wednesday's: "The Diedrich Dare" with a new blog & blinkie! I am so excited to be participating in this team of talented women once again.

Below is the sketch given to us for our first challenge:

I decided to go with a Black & White Halloween theme (see card above).
  • SU! Medallion stamp: Black Embossing Powder
  • SU! Twick or Tweet stamp: White Embossing Powder
  • SU! Sweet Centers Stampset (spider/EEK)
  • SU! Classic Black Ink
  • SU! Night & Day DSP; Whisper White; Basic Black
  • SU! Black Brads
  • SU! White Satin Ribbon
  • SU! Black Marker
  • Sakura Jelly Roll Pen
  • Black Ribbon (source unknown)
After embossing the Medallion stamp, I cut it out and sponged black ink on the edges. I tore the black square (skeleton image) and adhered to white square, edges sponged in black ink then attached to Medallion with Stampin' Dimensionals. After cutting the DSP to size, I sponged the edges in black ink and drew a spider web and spider in the upper right hand corner then traced the web in a Gelly Roll Pen. I just love creating in black and white. Not sure why I don't do that more often.

Marie from The Greeting Farm and Jess are offering a prize this week to celebrate! One participant of the first challenge will win Jess' Butterfly Wishes set. Click here for deets.
