Got Treats?

Happy Halloween! Make sure you have enough treats when this tricker-treater comes to your door.

This is a 5”x7” card (A7) due to the size of Frankenstein’s head! The sky was ink blended using Tim Holtz Distress Ink, the bats are die cut as is the black cloud/haze from which Frankenstein is emerging. Frankenstein’s face was colored using Copic makers.

Note: Bristol Smooth card stock was used for the ink blended sky. This particular cardstock is great for ink blending. The inks sit on top of the paper for a while, rather than being quickly absorbed into the paper. You get a better blend as a result of this.

Have a Happy Halloween, celebrate safely and Happy Haunting!
