A Poem for the Fall...



This is such a cool new image from
Stampendous!

I love the look of this skeleton when he is heat embossed!


I simply trimmed and burned the edges to look like old parchment and then inked it all in Momento Rich Cocoa.
The tulle flower adds some softness, and the little owl?
Well, who doesn't love a tiny little charm?!


Here's a closeup of the way the embossing looks!
Isn't it amazing!

Supplies:
Stampendous, "Clear Bark" Embossing Powder
Stampendous, "Skeleton Poem" Cling Stamp
My Mind's Eye, "Spider's Web" papers
