BOO! to You

Happy Friday Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne today with a quick and easy card featuring the ghosts from the new Halloween release.  This release along with the Christmas Part 3 release are on sale for a limited time on the web site.
There are several ways to decorate these ghosts including a witch.  I chose to use the lantern and the jack-o-lantern with these two.  First I cut all the pieces from white cards tock.
I used a sponge dauber and Smoky Slate ink to add just a little shading to the ghosts.  The rest of the pieces I colored using Copic markers.
For the background I cut a piece of mixed media paper slightly larger then A2 and used Washi tape to tape it to a masonite board.  This helps keep the paper from warping while making a wash background.  I used the Smoky Slate ink.
 After I had my "mist" I stenciled some bats on top using the Smoky Slate. When everything was dry I cut it down to A2 size.
For the word "BOO" I cut both orange and black letters using the Sugar & Cream die. 
I decided to use the black letters on top with a hint of orange underneath.
I used foam dots to adhere the ghost and glued it all to an A2 card base.
Fun card and easy to make.

 Thanks for stopping by and have a fun and creative weekend!
