Halloween



I was browsing through the Splitcoast gallery last night and was intrigued by this card. I liked that the colors were a little different and not the traditional Halloween black and orange combo. I also liked that it wasn't really juvenile and I thought to myself...."Hmmm, I bet I could adapt this to some A Muse stamps." I also had this card of Heather's in mind when I created this.


I used my Martha Stewart Bat Punch for the bats but they didn't pop off the card like I wanted them to so I put them on top of white cardstock and trimmed them out. Then I mounted the bottom one flat, the second one with 1 dimensional, and the third one with 2 dimensionals so it would appear 3-D. I also used a Quickie glue pen to draw little dots of glue for eyes and sprinkled them with some black glitter. What do you think? Does this work for a 'tween?'
I hope to get a sneak peek posted later or tomorrow for the Operation Hero Mail set so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, check the blogs of the other A Muse Creative Team members and be sure to leave some nice comments. We love to hear from you!
