A Different Type of Ghost

Yes, Halloween is almost upon us (only 8 more days if you're counting) and I'm trying to share everything with you all before it's too late. Well, I guess it's never too late to share an idea, but I'd prefer to share the ideas before the holiday has come and gone. So without further ado, on with the sharing! This card is a punchy ghost. He's almost completely punched with the large oval punch. Hope you like it...
Stamps: All Holidays
Cardstock: Naturals White, Whisper White, Basic Black, and Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Big Shot with Top Note die, Large Oval Punch, Modern Label Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, White Gel Pen, and Dimensionals
This scary dude was fun to put together. Once you got the pieces punched and everything sponged with the Eggplant ink, it was a snap to put together. By changing the placement of the eyes and eyebrows, you can get all kinds of expressions! Everything from mad, to scared, to surprised.
One little trick I especially liked was attaching the top of the nose directly to the card, but using a Dimensional under the end of the nose to make it stand out a bit. Just a little extra bit of whimsy to make someone smile.
Well, that's it for today. Thanks for dropping by and saying hi to my little scary dude!
