September 2010 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the September 2010 CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  If you have just arrived from Antoinette's blog, you're on the right path.  If not, no worries.   Our blog hop is a round-robin, so you can jump in anywhere and enjoy the whole experience.  Just click on the link at the end of each blog to take you to the next blog on the hop.  This month we have over 60 CTMH consultants participating in our hop.  We are featuring the September Stamp of the Month Thriller, a set of nine stamps.

Although this seems to be a Halloween-themed set, when I saw the cute skulls with heart-shaped eye sockets, I thought of pink and black.  My project is a covered composition book.  I random stamped several of the images in versamark and heat embossed with black powder.  The main image on the front was stamped in Versamark, heat embossed in black, and then I colored in the skull with Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint.  For the distressing, I used black ink and Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint, and the techniques used were the stubble tool and fan brush from the Distressing Kit, and direct-to-paper edge distressing and cross-hatching.  For the spine, I cut multiple strips of ribbon, which I adhered to another piece of cardstock, and then attached to the composition book.  Photo was taken before coating with Mod Podge to protect it (I didn't want to have a glare when I took the photo).

Inks: CTMH Black, Versamark

Tools and Techniques: Heat embossing, crosshatching, direct-to-paper edge distressing, stubble tool, fan brush, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint, CTMH ribbon
