Skeleton Hands card with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Halloween and we're also showcasing Memory Box products.

Halloween is my favorite season for making cards, tags and such. I love the scary-ness of it. For the Memory Box product showcase, I used the Skeleton Hand. Unfortunately, it's only one hand and it's the right, but that's okay, I just used two rights.


I started with a sheet of the Materialize Paper Pack for the background. I cut it to the right size and used Texture Paste along with the Bats background stencil. My Crushed Grape Dylusion Paint is has turned into a thick heavy body paint, I don't know how that happened, but for this technique it didn't really matter.

With the Skeleton Hand die I created sort of Jazz Hands to light up the scary-ness, and with the googly eyes turns the creepiness down a little.

Is it just me or do the googly-eyes actually makes this creation more disturbing as if those hands weren't enough? Sandra, your over-the-top creepiness has me grinning ear-to-ear (or in Mr. Skull's case, hand-to-hand) and the playfulness of your creation will inspire the ghoul in all of us!

This is awesome, Sandra! The skeleton with those eyes make it especially ghoulish because they are so unexpected. Amazing background as always!
