31 Nights of Halloween - Night 11 with Special Guest Andrea Ockey Parr

Do you ever see a stamp set and know that you absolutely must have it in order for life to continue??  That's how I felt when I saw a stamp and die set called Franken Bad Hair Day.  It was designed by the flippin' fantastically talented Deb Davis for Whimsy Stamps and I was honored when they invited me to participate in their 31 Nights of Halloween Blog Celebration. Here's the card I made featuring the aforementioned lovable Frank set:

So how did I bring Frankie to life?  I started with a cook book page (cause I never use cook books for cooking) and covered it with acrylic paint and Washi tape.

It was looking a little too festive for Frankie, so I added black, white and green acrylic paint, which I smeared on using my fingers.

Next I added my favorite liquid-y paint: Golden High Flow acrylics in teal, black and fluorescent pink.  I spritzed the paint with water to ensure some blending and drizzling.  Then I let it dry..

Next I worked on Frank.  I stamped his head on white paper, then his shoulders on some plaid paper.  I cut his chin-shape out of the plaid paper so that he would have a stylin' shirt.  I smeared some Distress Ink  and Simon Says Stamp ink onto his shirt to give it a bit more oomph.

I tore a square section out of a grammar book and circle-punched a hole through the middle.  I outlined the circle with a Sharpie and glued it to my background.  I stamped the "friend" and "good" sentiments from the stamp set, glued them to some black patterned Washi tape and put Frank together.

I assembled all the components and cut out a triangle hat for Frank (the set comes with the most adorable selection of hats, too) and I added a Washi tape number to the hat.  I finished off the card with some faux stitching from Whimsy's In Stitches stamp set.

Here are the Whimsy products I used on my card:
