Isn't he CUTE!!!?? I used white cardstock as the base and then tore up some white scraps I had laying around to use as the mummy's wrappings or bandages. I inked the edges to give it an older more worn look. I stamped the bottom with a sentiment from My Thoughts Exactly's Fright Night Phrases stamp set using Vintage Photo distress ink from Tim Holtz. The eyes I cut out using some stencils I had.
Thankfully I didn't start out with a cutting machine when I started crafting because having the old school basic stuff helps out when you just don't want to mess with SVGs or setting up the machine and computer to cut. Really, I just don't want to deal with the hassle sometimes. In fact I have been eyeing punches lately but then I realize I'd end up spending a TON because I would need every shape in every size and I might as well just either use the stencils I have or use my Silhouette to cut them out rather than spend hundreds on punches. Oh the dilemmas us crafty people deal with! :)
Oh by the way, I read that Silhouette is coming out with a new machine?! I can't remember the name of it but I was intrigued at first but then realized it's small like my SD so I have no use for it. If I'm going to upgrade I will get the Cameo and get rid of my dust collecting Cricut Expression. Poor thing has been sitting for at least a year collecting dust. I have used it once since getting my Silhouette. Probably time to sell the thing and use the money towards a Cameo!
Anyway, hope you enjoyed my mummy! I may make some more with different colored eyes such as purple or green. Maybe have him or her peeking ou from behind some darkness......
