Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS347) is a Halloween picture for inspiration…hence the big ol’ neon green eyeballs on my card. Isn’t it great to have a card that looks back at you, lol? It seemed the perfect time to bring out my neglected fluorescent markers & neon ink. If you can’t use ’em on Halloween, then when? I really had fun using them to color all the bottles of potions & poisons. Yep…that’s a tasty looking bunch!
After I colored them, I masked a few of them & added the bubbles. After die cutting the jar out of the front, I die cut a top out of metallic silver & added just a little coloring to the jar part of the cut out. I put a piece of acetate w/ some foam tape around it, behind the cut out & carefully placed some googlie eyes before sticking it down.
I came across a piece from the center of some die cut & it just looked like it could be the background for the eyes. So I stamped the eyeball twice w/ neon green ink, added a bit of neon shading & stamped the greeting on top. The spider webs were stamped once w/ the neon ink and again w/ the black then a couple of punched spiders added to finish. Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
