Here's lookin' at you

This has got to be the funnest card I've made this season! Don't you LOVE all the eyes!?! They are from Spooky Nights (Our Craft Lounge)!


After stamping them all over white cardstock, I colored each with YG21 (Anise) and YG25 (Celadon Green) Copic markers. Then my brilliant friend Joy said... "ooo' you've got to add some Glossy Accents!" OMGOSH! Now the eyes just pop! I used the Copic Airbrush System to spray a spooky grey sky (C2 - Cool Gray) and stamped the fence with Tuxedo Black (Memento)

The sentiment is stamped with Tuxedo Black on orange cardstock, and die cut with a Labels One die (Nestabilities). I ran my 2 way glue pen around the edge and sprinkled on the Eyeliner Black Crafty Sparkles. That stuff has the best sparkle to it! I thought the eyes in the sentiment needed some ooomph, so I stamped it on white cardstock, colored the eyes with YG21, cut them out and glued them on.

Are you ready for Halloween? Me either... but I'm getting there! :o)
