Have a Boo-tiful Day

Here's my card for this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  When I made this card last week, I cut out and stamped a whole bunch of these cute little one-eyed ghosts from Lawn Fawn's Monster Mash set.  I put one of those ghosties to use on this design.

Have a Boo-tiful Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn FawnI put a piece of green and gray patterned paper and a strip of steel blue cardstock on a dark gray panel, then adhered the panel to a coordinating green card base.  The "have a boo-tiful day" sentiment was stamped in gray ink on a green strip. After edging the strip with gray cardstock, I set it over the cardfront, hiding the seam between the patterned and solid paper panels.

I added just a bit of color to the ghost using Copic markers, then coated the image with a subtle layer of glitter from a Wink of Stella pen.  After covering the eye with Glossy Accents for shine and dimension, I used dimensional dots to adhere it to the sentiment strip.  A trio of black enamel dots arranged above and below the sentiment completed the design.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Lawn Fawn Monster Mash stamp set and Monster Mash dies; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Memento Luxe Gray Flannel ink; Jillibean Soup Witches Brew 6x6 paper pad; Studio Calico enamel dots; Wink of Stella clear glitter pen; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Sour Apple, Steel Blue, and Steel Grey cardstock (My Favorite Things); markers (Copic); Glossy Accents (Ranger)
