Puttin' On the Ritz

This 4x6" tag postcard uses VersaMark which is our Gingersnap Creations GC74 Spicy Supply challenge for Goth-tober.  Here's the link to the post so that you can read all about it and join in the fun: GC74

I heat embossed the skeletons by using this technique: stamp image with VersaMark to create a translucent image. Sprinkle image with Ranger Seafoam White embossing powder and shake off excess. Use heat gun to melt powder until image is shiny and raised.

To make this look like a stage for my dancing duo, I used clear gems, Tim Holtz tissue tape, and puffy silver star trim. Do they look like they're dancing their hearts out for their audience? (We won't talk about all those bones under the stage!)

I used stamps from Red Lead Paperworks because this tag is going to a Red Lead Swap Sister.
