QKD Blog Hop Day 5

Welcome back to Day 5 of our 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  Have you guys been checking out all the wonderful works of art that is being showcased?  Wowza.  It's fantastic.  My DT sisters have been rocking Halloween this week.

First things first..you should have arrived here from  Janie's blog.  If not, please go back to the Official Queen Kat Blog and start over.  I wouldn't want you to miss a thing.  Also, make sure you take advantage of the coupon code for 15% of your total order at the store.

Today's theme is SKELETONS/BONES.  When I was crusin' through the store, I found this stamp and knew it was the one I wanted to use.  I love it.  It represents what true love is all about.    Even after death, love always remains.  I am actually sending this one to my cousin and her husband for their anniversary.  She is into Tim Burton and Goth, so this card will make her laugh.

I apologize for the image distortion.  My camera isn't working and I had to try and scan it in.  I used a sketch from Mojo Monday to complete this card.  I think it turned out very well.  I began by stamping the images, which are two separate ones, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored in the image with colored pencils and OMS.  I used Nestabilities to die cut the image and DI Spiced Marmalade to highlight the circle.  I then cut out a scalloped circle to put behind the focal image.  The two DPs are from Recollections collection that came out last year.  The three paper roses I made using black and each side of the patterned paper.  I then covered them with Stickles.  I hand wrote the sentiment and added some rhinestones.  It was fairly simple.  The part that took the longest was die cutting everything.

Thanks for joining us today and we hope to see you back tomorrow for Day 6.  Just for a little hint, the theme for tomorrow can be a color, a drink or a fruit.  Happy Friday!
