I was really excited when I saw these colors because I think they make great halloween colors and I have been having a lot of fun using my new stamp set, Googly Ghouls. As I said before, this is my first halloween stamp set EVER, so I want to get as much use out of it as possible!
I first started with the strip of three characters. They are stamped with Black StazOn ink on Watercolor Paper so I could easily color them in with my Blender Pens. I stamped that whole strip with the blotches from French Foliage in Lucky Limeade, stamped off so it was a little lighter. I wanted the little mummy to really stand out, so I stamped him once again and cut him out, then popped him up on two layers of Dimensionals. For the background, I first thought I wanted to do some pennants. They are EVERYWHERE though, so I decided to use the Apothecary Accents Framelits instead. After I cut them out, I lined them up together in the Chevron Embossing Folder so the zig-zags would line up perfectly (yes, a little bit of OCD here :). The ribbon was added as an afterthought. I thought it needed a little something to separate the characters from the sentiment. I like how it hangs off the edge of the card. I don't do that often enough! It can be tucked under to fit in a standard-sized envelope, so why not?
