I only have eyes for you

Hi everyone! I'm excited to share with you my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #62 - Anything Goes! Our sponsors for this challenge are Bugaboo Digi Stamps, DRS Designs and Sparkle N Sprinkle! Come on and play with us! We know you love some anything goes!

This was a super fun and easy card I created for Halloween. I chose the awesome Eyeball digi and Eyes For You greeting from DRS Designs. I created what I call a 'smooshed ink' background with several alcohol inks in Halloween colors of orange, purple, green and yellow. wrapped a thin strip of cheesecloth a couple times around the panel and layered it on black cardstock.

I used a few Spectrum Noir markers and clear Wink of Stella to color the creepy eyeballs. I made one slightly larger than the other and put several layers of fun foam behind the smaller one to make it slightly more dimensional than the larger one which has just one layer of fun foam behind it.

I left the inside very simple with just a stamped sentiment.

I'm happy to enter this super simple Halloween card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Premium white cardstock, Marco's black cardstock
  • Stamps: DRS Designs Eyeball digital image, Stampin' Up! And Many More stamp set
  • Ink: Adirondack alcohol ink- Purple Twilight, Lettuce, Sunset Orange, Sunshine Yellow; Spectrum Noir- CR9, JG1, LG5
  • Dies/Punches: Spellbinders Classic Circles die, Stampin' Up! 1-3/4" Circle Punch
  • Accessories: Dritz cheesecloth, clear Wink of Stella, white fun foam
