QKD Thirteen Days of Halloween Blog Hop







Welcome to Queen Kat Design's Thirteen Days of Halloween Blog Hop!  If you've come here from the QKD Main Blog, you are on the right track.  For the next thirteen days, you'll see cards and projects using stamped images from the Queen's royal court of talented artists.  Today the theme of the Hop is Steampunk or Skulls.  I decided to use the very first QKD stamp I ever received, called Bodice.  I paired it with another stamp I fell in love with called Gothic Necklace.
For this card, I used a cardstock base that was literally a full sheet of black paper full of holes.  I backed it with white cardstock and used Orange and Black Stickles in each hole for a little shimmer.
I colored Bodice with my Copics in Halloween colors and again used Stickles for some shine, then fussy-cut the image. It is framed with patterned paper stamped with the Gothic Necklace in black.  I put it all against a black background, stamping Gothic Necklace again, this time in white along the top.
I had a lot of fun bringing the necklace to life by adding short chains, pearls, Stickles and tiny beads.  A few skulls and some stars and my card is complete.  I love my Bodice stamp, and have used it timne after time, from Halloween to Christmas to Valentine's Day.  You can find it and other fabulous stamps HERE.
I hope you like my Hop offering.  Now it's time to hop on over to BETH's Blog where you'll find inspiration for the upcoming holiday.  Before you leave, don't forget to leave a little love!!
