Skeleton Warrior and his Diabolical Steed (Day 3)




Everyone is doing SUCH neat stuff for the 31 Days... I wish there were more hours in the day to take it all in! I am going to try to alternate and catch about half each day if I can do that. And I will miss tomorrow most likely since I will be at work from 8 a.m. through midnight (yes you read that right) NBC is coming to film where I work as part of the presidential debates and I have to stay and help because my boss is off the next 2 days. It should be fun but I will be exhausted!

I am working ahead, so no fear, I will have a posting at the very least. This is so much fun. Thanks for all the wonderful comments so far and to everyone who is stopping by to visit.

For today we have a fun skeleton warrior on his wonderful skeleton horse. This is from Lost Coast stamps and I just love this stamp. It's colored with the wonderful white Tim Holtz Distress marker - I just love how it goes on even on dark colored card stock and it shows up just GREAT! (the other Distress markers don't work quite like the white one) It has a nice patina and is a whole different look than what you can get with a gel pen.

The background is a neat paper from a Halloween pad - I got quite a few with coupons this year - you will be seeing quite a lot of scrapbooking paper in my projects this month - I'm forcing myself to actually USE my lovely papers and not hoard them.... they are too pretty not to be using up! Oh and the circles are some cool new stamps I found that are from a Claudine Helmuth set I found at Archiver's - foam stamps on a thin, clear plastic backing so you can see where you are stamping with them! They also have clear rubber stamps that coordinate that sort of outline the foam stamps but I didn't get those, I kind of like the look of these without that added outline. It is a neat concept the way they are backed though, nice to be able to see where exactly you are stamping. I used Chalk pad inks for those – I love my Chalk pads!

Be sure to get around and see as many other blogs as you can - there's so much awesome stuff out there to see!

What a great stamp and I love the color you chose, it is so unexpected. Good luck at work, I know what the long hours are like. The longest I stayed at work was 4 days and it wasn't fun. Thank you for sharing.

You know how much I love that skeleton horse and rider and I think the papers you used are smoking. But the white distress marker is so cool it takes top honors here. Can't wait to get to that show in Strongsville and snag one!
