New Release at Sandra Caldwell's Babycakes Digi and Design shop
Hi everyone. Since it's Monday, it's New Release Day at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy shop, babycakesdnd. Throughout the day, her new releases will be featured by the DT on the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Facebook group and later today they will be uploaded to her Etsy shop. I was fortunate to be able to play along this time, colouring Girly Ghoul 808 with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. GG was then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border, matted with black cardstock, and popped up on foam tape.
The background began as a 6 x 6 inch piece of Halloween designer paper by Recollections. It had a spider web design and a printed border and provided a great place to start. White and black paint rings were created with Dylusions paint and two sizes of bottle lids. White embossing paste was scraped through TCW's Tiny Circles stencil in three places. Once dry, the wicked laugh, Bwa ha ha, was stamped onto the background using Jet Black Archival Ink. GG was then added to the bottom right corner.
The sentiment was printed onto white cardstock, cut into individual words, and double matted with green and black cardstock. Each word was then popped up on foam tape. Two shimmery bat embellishments were adhered to the background with a single spot of glue in the center of each to allow the wings to be free.
Black and white washi tape adhered to white cardstock was glued to the back of the background layer to create a frame. Black Big Brush pen was used to edge this layer. It was then matted with green cardstock, and again with black cardstock to frame it and pull in the green from her collar and stockings. It also added a pop of colour and goes well with her slightly greenish complexion...:)
Thanks for popping by today. Be sure and stop by the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Facebook group throughout the day to see the other amazing new releases and the wonderful projects by my talented teamies. Both the images and the projects are fabulous! Check out Sandra's Etsy shop, too, for a whole boatload of inspiration.
