My last post was a Christmas one, but today I'm thinking of another fun time of the year - Halloween. Much and all as I love Halloween, there really isn't a tradition of sending Halloween cards to each other here. But this card is for a sweet girl in the US, whose mum is a friend of mine. The card and some Irish spooky trick or treat goodies will be winging their way to her in October.
Stamp - Ghostly Greetings (Hero Arts) Die - Geometric Shapes (Hero Arts)
I started by die cutting the hexagons and clear embossing the spider webs on the black card. The sentiment was also embossed. Then I stamped and cut out the ghost owls, added them to the hexagons and stacked them on the card.
To finish, I added some googly eyes. Lol can you tell I sorted out and stuck on the googly eyes at night, in the dimmer light of energy saving light bulbs? It was only this morning that I noticed my mistake - two of the owls have different coloured eyes! Oh well, I've seen this in people and animals in real life so I just left them this way!
I'm submitting this card into the current Hero Arts Challenge as the stamp set and die are from the Holiday catalogue. The card was inspired by this card by Jennifer McGuire - the geometric shape framing the character, the stamped background within the frame and also the added embellishment to the eyes.
