Who's Annie? Everyone knows Annie?!! She teaches my parents' water aerobics class!!
Annie is a wonder, and this group is like a family now. They range in age from (I'm guessing,) 35 to 87 (I happen to be sure of the 87 - I won't say why ;) The core group goes out for coffee after every class, twice a week, and also celebrates everyone's birthday (either at coffee or at a restaurant, depending on the birthday person's availability!!) I have gotten to know most of them, and wish I lived closer so that I could be a regular!!
Here's my Halloween/Birthday card for Annie:
This was my first time using tulle. It turns out that it doesn't stick to Tombow adhesive at all!! I decided to try Liquid Glass, but I didn't want to get my fingers stuck in it, so I used a bit of scrap paper (pretty scrap paper in this case) to secure it:
|How would you have secured this tulle?|
I wanted the black tulle curtain to come together a bit under my little Vaudeville sign. So when I placed the foam adhesive tape, I just left space in the center, like so:
"Best Witches" came from the zip strip that runs along the top of one of the sheets of paper in the Moonlight Pack that I was using. It's just an extra little bonus!!
Front of envelope and back of card:
I have used the Moonlight paper for everything except Halloween, so I thought I should make a few more cards. I don't know if it shows up in the photo, but the sign reads "Beware." I added tiny red sparkles to the ghosts eyes, so that it would be just a tiny bit creepy.
Inside of ghost card:
|Tom really liked this and felt it needed a watermark!!|
For all of the characters, I stamped them on the light paper that came in the Moonlight Kit. It is a sort of Colonial White softly sponged in Goldenrod, Smokey Plum, and Slate. I have a real thing for this paper!! I am going to have to try to make it myself!!
Lastly, with the stamps that came from the Workshop on the Go kit, I made this one:
Ghost and Mummy received spiders on back; Vampire got a bat.
I decided to enter the Mummy card in the Heart 2 Heart challenge blog for the Halloween or Pumpkin Challenge. It is a wonderful challenge blog with a truly amazing group of creative artists. Bwaaahaaahaaa!
