August 2013 Papertrey Blog Hop

After a very full day of challenges and projects yesterday, today is Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop.  This month provided a series of color and sketch combinations.  Pick one and interpret.  While several of the color combos and inspiration photos caught my attention, nothing screams at me more than chocolate chip cookies.


My inspiration came from the colors, my desire to work on Halloween projects, and treats.  Here's my interpretation.  The skull is cut from Fine Linen Cardstock, aged with white paint and distress inks.  It's been attached to Dark Chocolate Cardstock with distressed edges.  A strip of True Black Cardstock was cut and then tissue tape was applied.  It was wrapped with twine and a few tiny bat brads were added.  The whole thing was attached to a Kraft Cardstock Card Base which had also been aged with distress ink. 

I am also entering this in A.R.T. Card Challenges Anything Goes Challenge.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

  2. Love your card! The skull and cross bones are very cool! And the strip of paper with the poison on it is very clever. So happy to have you play along with us at A.R.T. for our Anything Goes challenge. Joanne
