Surprise! Halloween Style

First- I have to disclose that this idea came from someone else, I just put it together.  This image is What's In The Box Peeker from the Peekers 2 Collection drawn by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD


I started by stamping the image on white cardstock and coloring her hair and skin   I then stamped it on patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows collection I got from SCACD.  I stamped the present again on white cardstock.  After cutting out a piecing together the little girls dress, bow and headband I also cut out the present from the white cardstock and the bow from the patterned paper.  I colored the box with my black glaze pen and did the same with the large dots on the box and pieced it together as well.

The hand coming out of the box is stamped using the Teresa Collins Happy Hallows stamp set I also got from SCACD.  I am going to be using this set a LOT!  I cut it out and then placed it on with the second present I colored and cut on top of it.  The rest of the card uses other papers from the Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows collection and a sketch from the JUGS challenge this week.

It feels fabulous to be creating some spooky, creepy, and fun Halloween things!!!

Fabulous card ... Love the patterned papers and colours .... But how can I resist that bony, spooky hand ...fantastic contrast from sweet and innocent to spooky and scary!
