Splatter Ghosts

When I was playing with images from the Brush Strokes set from Hero Arts, the bigger splatters reminded me of the fingerprint ghosts my boys used to make in school when they were younger. So I thought I'd make a Halloween card using these splatters.

Splatter Ghosts

Stamps (Hero Arts) - Ghostly Greetings & Brush Strokes


I embossed the splatters on black card and cut eyes and mouths out of black card. After adhering these to the ghosts I applied a layer of glossy accents for some sheen. It's impossible to see from the photo but I also stamped some cobwebs in black on the background. The sentiment was also embossed and I popped up the little ghost on the sentiment panel on a foam pad. To finish I just added a few gems and baker's twine.

I'm submitting this card into the current Hero Arts Challenge as the card was inspired by the super cute Halloween card (splatters on the background and popped up ghost) on page 28 of Hero Arts' Holiday & Stamp Your Story catalogue. Edited to add - I've just found out that Lisa Spangler made the card in the catalogue. You can see more on her fun card here.

Hope you are having a fun and inky weekend!
