SDC214; Early halloween

Carol is challenging us to create an early Halloween inspiration.  This simple card has giving me fits -- I have been coloring and fussy cutting all week which has resulted in major migraine and neck aches.  So I advise taking needed breaks!!!

My original card ripped when I pulled fibers around the edge. I hastily turned it into a tag -- which I was most unhappy with.  So with a new attitude and a little effort I returned it to the card it was meant to be, and perhaps this paper back is even a better choice!

The house is one of five in my stitched houses stamp. My Skullboy  is standing behind a portion of Daniel's Picket Fence.  The background was from an exercise I was doing with students, creating dry brush stripes in analogous colors.
The house is colored with Copics and Skullboy is a combination of Copic marker and Prismacolor.
Hope you enjoy this simple composition


  1. I know what you mean about taking breaks during a mega cutting session but it was worth it. You have produced a lovely project for Halloween. x
