Impression Obsession DT challenge- Halloween!

I sure do love these design team challenges, and I always love seeing what everyone creates. I am especially excited to see some new Halloween ideas!

For my card, I used the new Leigh Hannan ghost (F2356) and spooktacular saying (C5522). The background was made using the new woven cover-a-card (CC020). I LOVE that new background. I have inked it with brown ink for my fall cards, and it looks like burlap. As with this card, I sometimes ink it with grey ink and it looks great for Halloween....sort of like mummy wrappings.

To color the card, I used a variety of cool gray Copic markers around the ghost and a green Copic marker for the cemetery. To get the ghost a nice bright white color, I used a white Prismacolor pencil. I then layered everything onto black cardstock and added some scalloped trimmings from Doodlebug that I colored black to match.

Want to see other spooky cards? Check out what Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Julie, Kathy, and Shirley created. Want to play along with the challenge? Email your own Impression Obsession Halloween cards to Shirley, and every week cards will be highlighted on the Impression Obsession blog. Fun!
