Tiddly Inks has teamed up with Simply Betty Stamps for a spooktacular blog hop! Get all the details here and join the hop to win some fabulous prizes!
There's a small twist to the hop to share a "trick"--a favorite technique that you used on the card--or a "treat" which is simply sharing a project.
I chose "Rio", a digital stamp from Simply Betty who will be retired as a digi this Halloween (how appropriate!) and turned into rubber. I've always admired her super cool spider web skirt!
She was already trimmed out--which took me forever!-- and it seemed like a waste to toss her just because of her mouth. So I decided to do a face transplant.
I colored another face, being extra careful to color in her lips without smearing, and trimmed it out. Then I adhered it over the original image and managed to salvage Rio and use her on my card.
Here's my finished card with Rio's surgically repaired face.
I found some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye with a spidery background that was perfect with Rio.
I also used Tim Holtz's new embossing folder and tied some seam binding that I dyed with Spiced Marmalade + Rusty Hinge distress inks.
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween!
