Today we’re previewing Who’s Your Mummy WTG. 

Who’s Your Mummy?

The last time I used this set (for our VIP hop), I used browns and oranges.  This time I decided to go with blue-green/gray.

I like coloring things that are basically white.  It’s so fast!  :)  Here I used my lightest blue/green marker (BG0000) and then shaded over with grays (W00 and W1).  I used a black Copic to color my pinheads, and I clipped little bits from MFT’s Fancy Flourish to make it fit with my image.  (I love that die.  It can be elegant…or a bit spidery and spooky.)  After tying my ribbon, I zapped it with my heat gun for a crinkly, worn effect.

On the inside, I used another sentiment from the set, a second strip of Double Scallop Border and my favorite “ghosty” paper from WRMK’s “Spookville” paper pad.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
