Easel Valentine


This week's Monday Mania challenge at Club Anya and Friends is to make an easel card and add a bit of ribbon.

I colored Wild Sprout Ebony a while ago, and worked with her outfit colors to put together this red and black easel card. Although you can't see it, I added Glossy Accents on the little skull on her shirt.

After I made the dotty background, I liked the sponged edge and used it behind Ebony. Can you see it? It's the first time I've used something that I usually throw away.

The sentiment is from a stamp set that my daughter bought for me from Oriental Trading Company. Who knew they had clear stamps?

Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Hero Arts Dots, Oriental Trading Company
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Basic Grey, Gina K
Ink: Versamark, Black Soot distress ink
Other: Copic markers, Clear embossing powder, Nestabilities,
Glossy Accents, pop dots, sheer dot ribbon
