Swirling Ghost

Boo2

Good morning everyone!  The nights are definitely getting cooler and the days just a little shorter which means Fall is definitely on the way with Halloween right around the corner. I love the warm colors of Fall and used them for today's Halloween themed shaker card.

The background was done with Distress Paints (barn door, mustard seed and carved pumpkin) and water creating a marbling effect.  I inked up the edges with Black Soot to tone down the colors.  The Swirling Ghost Circle die is a die whose cut is meant to stay in the paper so I used that for my shaker window.  I then cut another Swirling Ghost Circle from white paper and cut out the ghost portion and adhered to the in the paper cut. I discovered a whole bin of googly eyes I had stashed away in a dark corner of my craft room and popped some on the largest ghost to increase the cuteness factor!

I added a few more of these stinkin cute ghosts from the Swirling Ghost die and then stamped the word Boo over top with black archival ink to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by for a visit today!
