Oh NO!

I’m usually not too big on ghost and goblins, but these little guys were to cute to pass up, so I took a few liberties with the circle element of Taylor’s Sketch today. I colored and cut my ghosts and pumpkin. Aren’t these OCL images adorable?

I’ve paired the images with <surprise> Echo Park Halloween paper. I am committing to you that I will *not* use Echo Park on my next blog project. Brownie Scouts honor!  My Copic Marker colors for the pumpkin are: YR12, YR16 and a bit of YR04. The mouth, eyes and nose: Y15 and Y19. Gray scale on the ghosts: W0, W1 and W2.

I cut the bottom edge of my paper tags with the new MFT Perfect Bracket Die. <swoon>  It’s sized large enough to put a pretty edge across a whole card front. LOVE! How I did it: I cut my patterned paper squares to go across the front of my card and adhered them to a strip of scrap paper at the top on the backside just to keep them all lined up nice and neat. Then, I trimmed the bottom edge with the die across the bottom. Easy-peasy. This die will be a mainstay on my craft table, and I cannot promise you that it won’t be used on my next card – even if I move on to a new paper line.
