Giving Thanks Card

I used the Mrs. Skellington from Dilly Beans Stamps for my image on this card. I colored the image with MS Paint and then added some chalk shadows, red marker for the hearts and some glitter. I added ribbon to the plaid paper I used for a background. She has a colorful fabric bow to help brighten up her lack of complexion, lol! I love Dilly Bean stamps! Check out the store for a wide variety of images to use in your artwork.

Top Tip: Scraps of fabric make great embellishments for your artwork. Larger pieces can be used as backgrounds instead of design papers.  Small pieces can be used as patches on clothing or as bows. Fabric adds color and texture to your artwork!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafting When We Can - ribbons & skulls
The Octopode - skulls and skellies
Top Tip Tuesday - #89 hearts + tip
Simon Says Stamp -Thanksgiving
Kaboodle Doodle - #145 plaid

There is a lot of beautiful artwork displayed on the above listed sites. Please take a look!
