More Halloween love :)

Hello friends -

I have a quick set of Halloween inspired cards to share with you tonight. I probably spent more time working on the button illustrations then on making the cards. Now here is where it gets really shocking… I actually mailed these cards to people. Lol.


To start I scribbled Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on a slick surface, spritzed with water, and then smashed watercolor paper into the inky mess. I let the cardstock dry between colors so that they wouldn’t blend and turn muddy. Once dry I added a strip of designer paper and then stamped a sentiment from the Boo-tastic stamp set (Mama Elephant). Then I glued a flair button and coordinating sequins to the card using Glossy Accents. Rounded a corner and adhered to a white card base using foam tape. So very easy! 

For your viewing pleasure, here is each card by itself.

1. Cranky Owl


2. Hangin’ Out Spider


3. Spooked Ghost


4. Twisty Spider Web


Oh, and if you comment on THIS POST, I’m giving away a bunch of these flair buttons. I made oodles and they need loving (spooky) homes.
