Happy Birthday, Betty!

I love being a part of Simply Betty Stamps Facebook Group. Betty is such a generous person and I was glad to be able to make her a card as part of her Birthday Surprise. Well done to Corinne for all her planning and thank you to Tamara for the image. Tamara's link for this image is:
                         and she has a great special on it for Betty's birthday!

I coloured the image using my Copics:
Face: E51, E53 and R20 for cheeks
Hair: 100,W10, W8, W5
Hat and Dress: BV08, FV2, BV13, BV17
Skirt and Corset: R17, R35, R39
Skulls: W5, W2, W1
Bat: W10, N8, N6, N4

I added lilac Spica Marker to her eyelids.

The web in the background of the card was created by covering cardstock with foil tape. The card was then embossed using a Tim Holtz web embossing folder.
I covered the foil with gesso and once dry, applied Ranger Alcohol 
Ink in 'Butterscotch', 'Eggplant' and 'Red Pepper'. (Thank you, Kelsey for showing me this technique!)
The embossed design was then sanded back before I attached it to the card.
The final touch was a spider to complete my 'spooky' Birthday Card.

I hope you like it Betty and best wishes for you having a fantastic day with your family!

Have fun following the blog hop, everyone. Jackie
