I have officially made my first Halloween card of the year. Though I think they are fun I just don't give as many out and I tend to be in crunch time come fall. This one is a little non-traditional. I certainly wouldn't call it frightful...maybe delightful? I couldn't resist this DP in the background that seemed fall but also had some bright colors, so I just went with it. Besides the paper the main driver were the birds on the wire, a die that accompanies a stamp from Hero Arts (though no stamp used here). The stamped image of the vampire from PS was actually the last piece I applied, sort of an after thought, but I think it works. :)
Fun fact about a group of Ravens, did you know they are called a Murder?! They feed are scavengers who often feed on carrion, are extremely intelligent and are widely spread across most of the Northern Hemisphere. AND with those beady, watchful eyes, it is no wonder people often think they are creepy and perfect for Halloween!
So I am entering this into the Deconstructed Sketch #120 , Paper Smooches SPARKS- Anything Goes and the Curtain Call Challenge Spooky Scene (even though it isn't that spooky!).
Today's Question of the Day is- what was your favorite Halloween costume you've ever seen or worn? My dad was really into dressing us up for Halloween and went all out with the makeup and fake skin. I remember not being able to be something girly (like a fairy or princess) and feeling upset by it, but I made a pretty good Charlie Chaplin-esk fat man. My brother and dad went as a Coneheads one year and that was pretty hilarious. So what about you?
