Greetings! I have a fun and kinda sarcastic card for you today. When I first received the Lots of Drips stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, I immediately thought I needed to make some sort of vampire-themed card and the drips would be red. That’ll make a great card, eventually, but I wanted to challenge myself a bit, so I dug through my stamps for inspiration. The Steampunk Alchemist stamp set from AALL & Create gave me a fun idea.

I decided to go with oozy, perhaps radioactive, bright greens for the Lots of Drips stencil, so I inked it up with Twisted Citron Distress Ink with some darker areas done with Rustic Wilderness. On top of that, I flicked on New Sprout Fireworks! Spray from Imagine.
The Steampunk Alchemist stamp set has lots of really cool images, including these 3 bottles. I colored them with Copics and fussy cut them. I needed them to be grounded on something, so I die cut an elongated oval out of Kraft cardstock and drew in some woodgrain with a Copic. I found my sentiment from the Smile Sentiments stamps from Stampendous. My card base was inked with the same 2 Distress Inks as the Lots of Drips stencil.
I like the bit of snark this card has because of the “medicines.” You probably won’t feel much of anything after taking these, although Epsom Salt is great for reducing swelling, among other things. So again, I give you not-quite-a-Halloween card, only because this is my typical style and sense of humor, but it certainly can be used for Halloween.
