Well, Halloween is creeping closer and closer so its no surprise to see lots of Halloween cards out there. I've seen some really fantastic ones too. I figured its my turn to share one now. I made this for a recent submission call at Paper Crafts Magazine but it didn't get picked up. Which is okay, now I can share it with all of you! I really like how this turned out.
I think it's the first time I've ever used googly eyes on a card. LOL. So, to make this card I did the following steps....
...Make card base from white card stock. Cut panel from navy cardstock. Using a scrap piece of cardstock cut circle and create a mask. Sponge white ink on navy panel using circle mask to create moon. Water down black paint and using a small paintbrush add to card in a vague tree form little bits at a time. Use a straw to blow paint to create "branches". Let it dry thoroughly. Stamp and emboss sentiment. Adhere navy panel to card base. Cut circle from black cardstock and using circle cutter or circle punch cut small crescent to make owl shape. Glue on googly eyes and adhere owl with foam dots.
Isn't the owl cute? I love how my moon and tree turned out too. I think I might send this to my niece for Halloween. :-).
I'm going to link up to the following challenges.
