Creepy Cute Mummy Card

I ran across this Skellie Dude by Sarah from Wonderstrange in my digital stash and thought it was about time to use it!

The card base is a kraft paper that I wrapped with fabric tape. It really looks mummy-ish, doesn't it
As some of you know, we spent many hours in the hospital this summer, and the nurses often sent us home with extra medical tape & were nice enough to let us keep the blue rubber tourniquets they used to take blood. We're enjoying healthy times these days, but I amassed quite the collection of medical supplies for crafting purposes!

I colored the rubber piece with a black marker (it barely adheres) and added an orange washi tape to create the side banner.

The oval pieces were cut with a Sizzix die. The purple oval is cut from a very glittery cardstock.

I printed the image on white paper and colored it with Copics and gel pens. I fussy-cut it and glued it to the Kraft piece embossed with a Sizzix folder. I placed the piece on an Action Wobble for a little fun!
