Sin City Stamps is having a DT call, and in order to apply they ask to show a minimum of  5 projects using rubber stamps. All details can be found on their blog here.

I thought to give it a try :-)  wish me luck......

It's hard to choose which ones to show, so I decided to shop a mix of the kinds of projects I usually make, and as you can see it's not just all Dark Art :-)

31 days of Halloween ; day 30

31 days of Halloween ; day 30

 The paper was already black and white so I decided to keep it that way and have an all black and white page :-)

The frame is a stamp by Viva Decor and I used black embossing powder on it, I like the effect that it looks a bit raised like a real frame.

All other stamps used are from de Stempelwinkel, I did not bother to mask when stamping the crow in the frame because I liked the branches sticking out of the frame.

I used black sooth distress ink for all edges and rubbed a bit over the page aswell using a bleding tool.

See below ow this page looks when it's in the book

thanks for visiting and the nice comments , see you tomorrow

31 days of Halloween ; day 29

Welcome to day 29 of the 31 days of Halloween, blog roll in the side bar

Today some more page from the junk journal.

In todays junk were some left over pieces of plastic sheets and a bit of black sticky paper ribbon a small tag and some black cardstock and a piece of a rub on

   I used the sheet to make a pocket and decorated it with the black paper ribbon, The skelleton is a die cut by Sheena Douglas. I just die cutted it and put it in the pocket. Assembled the skeleton is too big for the book, so thought to make a build your own skellie friend kit,  Just some glue needed and your skellie friend is ready to paly
  the tag has some distress in on it in purple and black, added the rub on and stamped the word caution.

In the book it looks like this

see you tomorrow for some more junk journal stuff
