Yes, I know, Halloween is over and my calendar does indeed say November but there were at least two challenges left to do that had inspired a ghostly card and I thru in a Get Sketchy Challenge for good measure. (that and the sketch worked perfectly). So here are the Challenges:
1) Everything But the Kitchen Sink . The challenge was to incorporate toilet paper in a project...that's right toilet paper and you should just check out some of the ingenious ideas that those ladies have come up with. All week last week my preschooler was coming home with these ghosts made out of kleenex and he decided to use a box of it to make his own at home. By the end of week I was pretty tired of finding these little guys all around my house. Who would have thought it would be the catalyst for my next creation?
2) Crazy 4 Challenges . The challenge was to make a spooky halloween card. These ghosts may be more cute than spooky but it still fit the theme.
3) Get Sketchy Challenge #12 . My version of the sketch is a way more simplified version than most but once I got those ghosts on my 5x5 card there wasn't room for multiple layers and embellishments.
The ghosts are made by covering half a square of TP with a whole square and tying with gingham ribbon. I then ran the ends of the ghosts over my black ink to give them a darker, scarier look and then I added eyes with my marker. I also used my marker on the die cut sticker to doodle the Ghostly Greetings sentiment. What do you think? Any ideas on how I could have jazzed it up a bit without making it too busy?
