Big Witch, Little Witch, Ghoul and Ghost

Hello.  Welcome.  As I was looking to see what I could use to join the fun at Unity friends today I came across a few halloween itty bittys.  I had been looking for something that would fit the Unity sketch and decided these guys were perfect.  One was a ghost, which reminded me that DominoART want any game with a ghost.  Which reminded me that I STILL have some unaltered playing cards.  Just call me Procrastination.  So, put it all together and come up with this



I took my gesso'd playing card and stamped Unity's Frazzled, the ghost from Be Afraid, the witches from Best Witches and Halloween Greetings (NBUS) , and Numbers, Etc. (NBUS). I embossed the trick or treaters with black embossing powder.  The numbers were stamped using London Fog ink and clear embosssed.  



I coloured with sharpies, promarkers and distress inks.  I was going to add a halloween greeting and the number 31 but then it struck me that it looked like the kids had dressed up for Halloween and were posing for the camera.  So I die cut Smile using Cheery Lynn Happy Hippo in green and black.  I really need some tiny little 'click' sentiments to scatter around.

  11. Oh, my goodness, Gail.....did you mask all those characters to do that stamping????? I loathe masking as much as fussy cutting!!!! LOL...
    What a fun and spooky take on the sketch!! Fabulous for Halloween. I like your wonderful coloring and the numbers in the background. But you know what?....I really like the ghostly effect of the unfinished first photograph! Now you need to make another one. :)
