Happy Boo to You!

I had to do it...I just had to make ONE Halloween card! I love this stamp set...got it last year when it was going to retire. I was just itching to use it! So, here is what I came up with...my own Michelle Zindorf knock-off! (BTW, if you have not seen her blog before, you are missing out! Check her out here.)

I love the concept of the card, but I am not 110% happy with how the card itself came out. I think I needed a brighter color on top of the black to make it pop more. Hummm....

Anyway, wishing you a very Happy Halloween full of treats and no tricks!

Stamps: Booglie Eyes, Season of Friendship (SU)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Black
Ink: Ranger Vick Bantock Lamp Black, Versamark, Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue, Copics to color the images
Accessories: Silver Cord (SU), Google Eyes, White Gel Pen

Technique: For this one on Whisper White cs I stamped the tree in Versamark and then Chocolate Chip, immediately sprinkling with clear EP. I heat it to set.

Then, I stamped the witch and mummy, colored in with Copics, colored over with a Versamark Pen and sprinkled with clear EP, then heat to set.

After that, I punched a circle with a post-it (you know how I like those! LOL) and put it over the witch. I then took my brayer and covered the card in Bashful Blue. I layered Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy until I got a good sky. I removed the mask for my moon and sponged in the Barely Banana and Apricot Appeal.

Thanks for looking! BOO!
