Creative Inspirations Spooky Challenge....

Hi everyone, I must apologise for this being posted late, my Godmother is very unwell so I've been spending most of my free time with her at the hospital. On a more cheery note, this week at Creative Inspirations we were given a choice of 2 images from Sassy Studio Designs. I chose to use the Sassy Ghost image and decided to create a 3D box card (this is a bit of an experiment for me I'm afraid so this is my first attempt at this type of card!) Here's the result.............
This looks better in real life, they are very difficult to photograph I promise! Here's some close up of the image...

She is COVERED in stickes but again you can't see this (really must improve my photography skills!) I also added some crackle glaze on her eyes.

Below is a picture from above to explain why this is a 3D box card as like I said, it doesn't show up well in the photos!

Image: Sassy Ghost (Sassy Studio Designs)
Dies: Nestabilities circle (for the moon); Sizzix halloween tree; star punch
Stickles: stardust
Colouring: copics and distress inks; white sakura gel pen for the highlights

Thanks for browsing and any comments you might leave, I love reading them. Hugs. Katy. xxx
