I am back with Stamp-n-doodle

Hello! I am so late today with Stamp-n-doodle, please accept my apologies everyone, especially the fabulously understanding Stamp-n-doodle peeps! We are showing off a Halloween image called "Dancing Queen". It is a hilarious image of a witch dancing with a silly mummy. I love it! We were also asked as a challenge to NOT use orange or black. Wow, that turned out to be harder than I thought it would be. My "Halloween" brain kept me going back to orange or black every time I wanted to do something with my creation. I did print the image in black, I hope that was ok. I finally decided to go with purple and green color scheme.
I colored the image with the following Stampin Up markers: Lovely Lilac, Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant Old Olive, Always Artichoke, and Sahara Sand on the mummy. Then, I cut it out with a square Spellbinder's Nestibility, and sponged some SU Going Gray ink around the two dancers. Then I ran one of my Halloween Cuttlebug embossing folders through, with some DCWV card stock, as it has a white center layer in it and I wanted to sand the raised portions a little bit. Then I added some dark purple ribbon from my stash (clearance section at Archiver's). My last thought was to put some tiny googlie eyes on the embossed areas of the background. that sums it up! Now, go visit the stamp-n-doodle blog tomorrow, to see if this image is offered to you for free! Go visit the other DT members and see what cute ideas they have come up with with this image! See my sidebar for links.

Now, since I am late with this post today, I shall leave it up all day tomorrow too at the top of my blog and post a Stampin Up card on Saturday instead of tomorrow.

Blessings, Lisa
