Grilled Cheese Monster ATC

Hello,

Whew! It has really been awhile since my last post lol

Here is an ATC I made using a free digital stamp called monstrous grilled cheese from wonderstrange.

I used some white polka dot scrapbook paper for the background and edged around the entire ATC with Distress Ink in black soot.

I coloured the sandwich up with Prismacolour markers in the colours: PB-69, PB-17, PB-123, and PM-23. I coloured the city with Spectrum Noir markers in IG4 and IG6.

I fussy cut him out and added Glossy Accents to the cheese and his mouth.

Zombie Minion Pumpkin 2015

Happy Halloween!

Here is my carved pumpkin for this year--it's a Zombie Minion!!

I painted him with yellow acrylic paint and then sponged on some neon green paint to "dead" him up a bit. hehe

I painted a plastic top silver for his eye goggle and printed out a Minion eye. I painted the strap for the goggles with black paint.

The only part of the pumpkin that I carved was his teeth. I gave him a startled mouth and only 3 teeth. I added some blood with red paint.

I painted his overalls blue and added some white dash stitching lines. I added 2 black buttons and printed out his logo which I attached to his pocket.

Now for my favourite part of the entire pumpkin--his exposed brain! haha I used pink Sculpey Clay and added lots of blood...I even made some worms. 

And lastly, I took some plastic drinking straws, painted them black and stuck them into the top of his head for hair. 

Thanks for having a look.

Halloween Witch Shaker ATC

Hello,

Here is a shaker ATC I made using the digital stamp set Little Witch from Vera Lane Studio. I made this for the September Halloween Swap in the Vera Lane Studio FB group.

To make the shaker part:
I used 2 ATCs. For the 1st ATC, I simply attached some Halloween paper that has iridescent spider webs on it (set aside) 
I cut out a window from a second ATC to make a frame. I coloured it with Distress Inks in Hickory Smoke and Black Soot. Working on the backside of this piece, I attached a piece of acetate and added some foam tape all along the sides to give the confetti some room to move. I added silver, green, and purple confetti for the shaker bits. 
I then peeled off the backing to the foam tape and carefully laid the 1st ATC on top. 
Flip the right way around and viola!

I coloured her and the crow with Prismacolour markers and fussy cut them out. I added Glossy Accents to her buttons/skull and on the crow's eyes. I used clear Wink of Stella on her hat and eyelids.

I attached them along with an iridescent sticker to the front of the shaker.
