Yet another card with Booglie Eyes… these guys are just too cute! I cased this layout from SweetMissDaisy. Check out her adorable card!
I started out by stamping each of the characters. I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol and a stump. The ghost is colored with Signo white gel pen. I wanted them to look like trick or treaters so I drew in a sidewalk for them to stand on. I’m no expert in drawing so I’m not sure if this looks alright, but good enough for me! LOL! I added some piercing to the image and used the speckle stamp from Itty Bitty Backgrounds for some extra dirtiness. For cardstock I used Pumpkin Pie, Vintage Violet, Whisper White, and the green striped paper is from The Angel Company. I used the Happy Boo to You sentiment throughout the background along with the speckle stamp. The Pumpkin and Violet layers are sponged with black ink. Then I added orange brads to the corners, some doodling and stitching with the white gel pen, and the stitched ribbon in Vintage Violet. The trick or treat sentiment is done with Karen Foster snap stamps. What would I do without them!?
Now I am off to the couch for the rest of the day. I tweaked my neck and can hardly move my head without pain so I really shouldn’t have been stamping today. But I just couldn’t resist! 😉
