One Eyed Jack

Well...here we are, the week of Halloween and I still have a few creepy projects to share! Like this bony little fella I like to call "One Eyed Jack," for obvious reasons:


He's not too scary, is he? It's hard to tell, but the skull is another one of my Silhouette creations; a digital shape that I've cut out and glittered. He was still laying around, dying to be used, so I had to put him to good use. I placed him...uh...strategically on my card. I added the last of my glittery bats, too. I'm going to miss those little guys. I finally used my Just the Ticket set and coordinating die from Papertrey Ink. Don't know why that took so long! And I love the bright colors of this BoBunny patterned paper - it's just a little different from the traditional colors. To finish it all off I dyed some silk ribbon with my Copic markers, crinkled it up and tied it on and added a button and some baker's twine:


I may have another one or two projects to get in before Halloween. I still need to put some finishing touches on my daughter's outfit and make a few more treats. I'll share what I can, when I can. See you soon!
