Making eyes goggle!

Today I can honestly say I love this card!!

First I loved creating this image for Taylored Expressions. You'll find this flirty, witchy skirt in the Punchy Potions set, part of the Whimsical Wishes line. But really the stamped image on the card came after I started playing around with my new Impressabilities Circles. I embossed using my Cuttlebug on white cardstock and then smeared black ink all over the embossed image. Because I had a Halloween card in mind, the distressed look was perfect. I imagined googly eyes when I was 'eyeing up' this template at the store. Hope you can see them! Some stitching; wonderful mesh ribbon that was included in the Spooky Expressions Bundle from Taylored Expressions; PTI plum pudding and SU kiwi kiss and black cardstock; and a strip of paper from Recollections Halloween 8"x8" paper pad (I think this is a Michael's brand). Finally, I'm also happy with how my copic colouring turned out. This is a fun and easy image to colour (and cut out with Spellbinders ovals).

I should confess that this was supposed to be a purple card but I sewed it shut! "Scary eek scary eek..." Luckily I still had 12"x12" textured kiwi kiss cardstock in my stash.

Thanks for looking...please let me know that you have. ;)
