SCACD Digi Day!

Today SCACD's DT and the Friends of SCACD group are showcasing SCACD's Fall digital stamps. Some of SCACD's digi stamps will have a special twist to make them seasonally appropriate.

If you want to see all this fabulous inspiration and win a shot at some yummy blog candy, Susana's offering a sweet FREE digi image through October 5th. Head to the SCACD Store Blog for details.

Here's my seasonal offering, featuring Mrs. Bones and Gothie Feline.

PhotoElements was used to reduce Mrs. Bones and Gothie Feline. It took a bit of playing to make Gothie Feline somewhat proportionally correct to Mrs. Bones. A new document was created and the reduced versions of both were imported.  Gothie Feline was duplicated and flipped, then both kitties were positioned on either side of Mrs. Bones. I printed out a test copy and realized that the scene size was huge, so I flattened the scene, saved it, reduced it, and printed out another test copy. Much better. I printed out the final copy onto the good stuff, Neenah cardstock, using my laser printer. 

Mrs. Bones and the Gothie Felines were colored using Copic markers. The Gothie Felines's eyes, the cats' flower's skull, and Mrs. Bones's earrings and necklace were coated with several layers of Clear Gelly Roll Glaze pen to add glossy dimension and shine. I used my Spellbinders A2 Card Creator dies to die-cut the image panel.

The patterned papers are from a very old Ambrosia 6x6 pad by Basic Grey. Some of the layers were roughed up a bit too add some color and textural contrast. One of the two dies included in SCACD's fabulous Classic Corners die set was used to die-cut one of the solid sheets from this pad.

The Mrs. Bones digi stamp comes with a sentiment, "No bones about it, style never dies." This would have been perfect. Alas, I did not leave enough room for it or the alternate "Accessories are everything" that I thought about using. Oh well. Poor planning on my part!

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you are inspired by what you see here, at my teammates's blogs (blogroll to the right --->), and at the Friends of SCACD's blogs.
