Who's Your Mummy now?

Happy Friday!

I'm sure all of the DRS staff and design team are having a good time (and a laugh or two) ever since this Who's You Mummy greeting was released. I'll let you in on a secret about this greeting. As soon as we rec'd it, all of the DT started looking for a mummy image. What?? No mummy image?? So Sue (the person responsible) says, whoopsie, y'all (ok, the y'all part is me since I talk that way. Sue's from up north. I don't think they say y'all, lol) don't have to use it this year. We'll get a mummy next year. So what do we do? If the others are like me, it became a challenge I couldn't refuse. I think Sue is also responsible for making us think outside the box. And y'all are getting 3 (so far) ideas to use the greeting even w/o a mummy image. Pam showed you a super cute & creative Mummy card. Chris showed you how to dress up Frisky Florence as a mummy on her super creative card. Today, I want to share my spooky graveyard scene w/ just a partial mummy peeking over the fence. So I just have one question for Sue....Who's Your Mummy now, lol?
This little scene was created by stamping the two tree scenes w/ white pigment ink then I added the tombstones and extended the background w/ a white gel pen. I stamped the moon part again using black ink on a piece of yellow c/s. It was punched w/ the circle punch and attached over the base image. The mummy face is a punched circle I embossed w/ the stripe folder then added more torn strips on top and some googly eyes. The fence is more distressed stripe embossing w/ the top cut w/ deckle scissors. I added just the little bat (x 3) from the small bat w/ moon image. The finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Neat card Julie and way to go thinking outside the box! Great idea to just use the bat from the moon and bat stamp!

I'm bowing - once again - before your greatness :) Looking beyond your awesome "made from scratch" mummy, I love the b&w with the yellow moon popping out!
Wonderful post too! Although to be accurate I do "Y'all" every now and again!
And for a little Halloween mystery, I posted a comment yesterday and today it's gone - spooooky!

Let me see if I can comment now. Terrific mummy scene. I love the dude hanging over the fence. Quite clever.
