Frankenstein Fun

I have a confession.  I have never made a card for halloween.  Ever.  I have never even owned a halloween stamp set!  Sure, I've had pumpkin sets (well, I actually don't think I ever even mounted those sets!), but never anything that screams halloween.  Well, when I saw the Holiday Catalog, I KNEW Googly Ghouls would be my first true halloween stamp set!  It is so stinkin' cute, and at only $12.95 for the clear mount set, I knew it had to be mine!  PLUS, for only $4.00 more, you can get the bundle, which includes the stamp set AND the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit.  The kit includes glassine bags, googly eyes (which I am now OBSESSED with!), baker's twine and tags that you can stamp on.  I will be using these for my kids' treats at school this fall!  I was so excited to use the stamp set and they had the best challenge over at casology this week.  Here is the cue card for the week:

My immediate first thought was FRANKENSTEIN!  And I now have one so this was an easy one!  The best thing about casology is they want Clean and Simple cards, so it doesn't take a lot of supplies and they can easily be recreated.  I had a lot of fun with this one:

It doesn't show up very well in the picture, but I used shimmery white cardstock, so it looks really cool in person!  I sprayed my piece of cardstock with water and then I took reinkers and dropped them on the cardstock.  Then I sprayed it some more to make them run all over the cardstock.  When I had to add reinkers and spray a few times until I was satisfied with the results, and then I took a paper towel and pushed it on top of it to soak up all of the water.  The BOOOO probably didn't need all of the eyeballs, but I am obsessed with them and have been putting them everywhere! ;)
