I Brake for Dapper Skeletons!

Here's a Halloween card featuring the ever-so-dapper Skelly Tonn from the Randi Dandi Halloween Series 1 Collection of rubber stamps by Rick St. Dennis that are available exclusively at I Brake for Stamps.

Skelly Tonn was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) and colored with Copic markers. The tip of his cigarette, eyes, and nose apertures of the skulls on his bowtie and fashionable cufflink received dabs of red, orange, and yellow glitter pens. The skulls, buttons, and his cigarette holder were coated with several layers of clear glaze pen to add dimension and shine. The Skelly Tonn image was then fussy-cut and edged with a black marker.

I selected a sheet of patterned paper, then placed the Skelly Tonn image upon it. I loosely traced Skelly Tonn's shape onto the patterned paper using a charcoal pencil, lifted the image, then used the charcoal pencil to color the traced image. When I was happy with the coverage, I also used the charcoal pencil to edge the image panel. The image was loosely adhered inside the charcoal-colored area.

Orange cardstock was cut and folded to form the card. The image panel was adhered to it. A scrap of the excess cardstock was die-cut with the words from a  Happy Halloween sentiment die set. Pale yellow-orange vellum was die-cut with the shadow dies from the Happy Halloween sentiment die set and the vapor die from a cauldron die set. The vapor die-cut was adhered behind the cigarette on the Skelly Tonn image, which was then more firmly adhered to the image panel. The orange Happy Halloween sentiments were adhered to their vellum shadow counterparts, which were then adhered to finish the card.
