Simply B Stamps 13 Days of Halloween: Day 6


With less than thirty minutes to spare I'm here with my entry for Day 6 of Simply B(etty) Stamps 13 Days of Halloween challenge!  The theme this time around is "Slime and Grime".  Over on the Simply Challenged Challenges blog we've been instructed to use lime green and distressing on our projects.

I selected the Bride of Chrisenstein from the 2012 Teen Scene Halloween collection.  She is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up with foam squares.  My sketch is an awesome one from Graphicat Sketches (#18).  Papers are Brenda Walton's Haunted by K&Company.  I have used my Tim Holtz tool to distress the edges and then they were inked with Distress Ink in Antique Paper.  That covers the "grime".  For the "slime" there are a few elements that meet the requirement.  I have her skin colored up in lovely shades of lime.  I also used some Stampin' Up Green Galore card stock.  My Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch provides a nice border for the black velvet ribbon.  I also added two lime hued flowers.  The Halloween ticket was made using a Tim Holtz stamp and die combo.  I distressed the edges a bit and sponged them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  My final element is a metal corner embellishment.


I am loving these challenges but this one was a bit tough with less than two days to complete it.  Being a single mom who works full-time makes time management challenging sometimes.  I am hoping to be able to play along with the next challenge since the weekend will be here.  I'd love to enter all 13...  We're just about half way there now so we'll see!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
