Glad you decided to come and Trick or Treat with the Odd Girls! You should have arrived from Lenny’s blog. If you’ve just stumbled on our hop today, you’ll want to go back to the Some Odd Girl blog to start at the beginning.
Our hop this week is full of spooktacular Halloween Tricks and Treats. Don’t worry, our tricks won’t be too scary! AND, just like trick or treating for candy, you don’t want to skip any houses…or blogs in this case! In order to win TREATS, you must leave a comment on each of the Odd Girls’ blogs.
For my stop on our hop I have a Trick for you.
My trick is to use no halloween papers or specific images (minus the bit of brain lol) to make a creepy card.
I used a simple woodgrain paper, then the flower and sentiment stamps from Miss You Mae. After stamping the flowers I pooled ink at high areas of the petals and blew the ink outwards to get the effect.
For the image I used Picnic Mae, a digital stamp, who is normally a very sweet spring image and colored her up to look the zombie.
To do that I used the same Zombie Skin technique I shared on the Some Odd Girl blog earlier this month. I put the brains in her picnic basket from Zombie Mae. I could have digitally pieced it into her basket too but I didn’t think of it ahead, I got caught up in how fun it would be to have a picnic basket of brains lol.
My other trick was to make her look just a little more “undead” I used a white pen on the pupils of her eyes and then dabbed at it with my finger to get that glazed over look.
I’m the very last stop on the hop, but just as a reminder you can Trick or Treat with us thru midnight EDT on October 31. Winners will be announced Saturday Nov 2 on the Some Odd Girl blog.
I hope you enjoyed this fun hop!
