I See You

Hello All,

Today is a new challenge for Make My Monday challenge blog. For the next two weeks we have provided photo inspiration for you to interpret. Before we get to the challenge here is my card for today, enjoy.

I used the inspiration photo by trying
to achieve the 'feel' of an ominous spooky environment.
Challenge #33
Photo Inspiration:

The whites of her eyes is very creepy and seem to glow against the red spooky night.
I layered up all the Distress red inks I had on hand then added some gray and black for the clouds.
Look closely at the sentiment. 'Hello Sweet Friend'.
Pretty creepy if you ask me.
I first saw this two toned sentiment technique over at Make It Monday
I just modified it a bit but the idea is the same.

Challenges Entered:
Happy Little Stampers: Anything Goes with Dies
Happy Little Stampers: Mixed Media Challenge- Nature
Creative with Stamps: Sentiment
CASology: Week 219- Spooky


This sentiment was actually my daughter's idea! She loved the 'sweet friend' sentiment but it couldn't stand alone. She recommended to have another sentiment across the 'sweet friend'. A lightbulb went off in my head. And the result is what you see here. I wanted the 'hello' die cut to blend into its surroundings and (hopefully) wouldn't be discovered until later. I guess I wanted it to hide until you found it. But first your attention goes to those creepy eyes peering out at you from well.... somewhere. I just love this card and will probably remain in my collection for a time. 

Well that should do it for me. I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Make My Monday. It should be fun! Until then take care and happy crafting.

All the best,

P.S. I have seen a lot of you wanted to know where this stamp came from. It is from Stampendous here is the link. Happy Stamping!!
