Fright night

We're fast approaching Halloween and Rizwana would like to see spooktacular makes for our challenge over at Daring Cardmakers this week.

I don't own any stamps or other supplies that are spooky so I found a way to improvise and made a postcard! I used a cheesecloth background stamp and torn edges as masks to create a "wrapped bandage" effect  and a longer word ("KABOOM!") with selective inking and a marker pen to fill in missing lines for the sentiment. The eyes are drawn using circle dies as templates.

This year may have gone wonky in many ways but Lost Coast Designs have their usual 31 Days of Halloween going on so I'm linking up there, too.

Cheesecloth backgrounder (Cornish Heritage Farms, no longer with us)
Kaboom (Waltzingmouse Stamps, no longer with us)

Bristol board

Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Vintage Photo)
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black)

Copic markers

Black fineliner 
Circle Nestabilities by Spellbinder (to draw round)
White paint pen by Posca

Thanks for stopping by, hope you are keeping safe and well.

Not only is this card adorable but that you were able to create this with no Halloween stamps is amazing! Great job and thanks for joining the Lost Coast Design Challenge!

I am so impressed with your clever idea with the cheesecloth and masks to make the wrapping! I never could think of a reason for me to have that kind of I am having ideas for get well cards!

The eyes are spooky!
