My name is Mary Ellen Driggs and my blog is Creative Time With M.E.

I have had such a fun time being a guest designer for the Clever Dexter blog this month!

This month's challenge Sponsor is Oddball Stamps. And the challenge for this month is Beach Bum.

As guest designer I was able to play with the Creepy Cute Big Eye Hula Girl Spooky Sue Image No. 247 from Oddball Stamps! With this stamp set you get a couple of images. My previous post showcased the hula girl image. For this post, we will focus on the other images in this set.

This card is slightly shorter than an A2 sized card. I printed the stamp set out a couple of times and then fussy cut out the skulls. Then I took my Sharpie marker to doodle on top of the skulls. And finally I colored in the flowers on the skulls using a pink alcohol marker. I then used that pink marker to color the flowers inside the word FLOWERS to create a cohesive look. As for the word ROTTING, I used a red alcohol marker to color the word. For the top of the card, I took a scrap of white cardstock. Then I blended in some distress ink and sprinkled water to activate the ink. Next, I took that scrap and a border punch to create the dripping blood look and glued that to the top of the card.
