31 Nights of Halloween - Night 11 - Special Guest Marie Marco

Good evening, Whimsy friends!  
Tonight we welcome the uber talented Marie Marco back to the blog for some spooky inspiration.

Hello Crafty Friends! I’m so happy to be back guest designing here on the Whimsy Blog! We are on full Halloween mode now! Today I am revisiting my favorite spooky stamp set from Whimsy Stamps! This stamp set, designed by Deb Davis, called Eye Scream is just so much fun that I knew I had to make another card with it! There are just endless possibilities with this set! Today I wanted all eyes on the image of the peekaboo Mummy eyeball! 


This is a very simple card using just one image as my focal point for the front of my card. I wanted this piece to have a vintage, gore vibe.
To start off, I die cut 2 A2 sized panels from sturdy 110 pound cardstock. I then found some vintage wallpaper Halloween pattern paper (any will do) and die cut it in A2 size. I adhered it to one of my cut panels using score tape and distress inked the edges in Walnut Stain and Black Soot distress inks. 


I colored the eye using the noline coloring technique by stamping the image with Antique Linen and used water color pencils to color. You can you use any kind of watercolors! 
Then taking a vintage-looking frame die, I cut out the die using black card stock. I also used vellum paper for some simple interest which I also distress inked and placed behind the eye. To frame my focal point eye image, I watercolored some random sprigs and foliage die cuts to create a wreath . To make everything POP, I added some red texture glue using an old bottle of Scribbles fabric glue to create that bloody amazing detail! You can use any red texture glue - like Nuvo drops would work perfectly!  I love this part! 
I wanted to keep the front of my card simple, so I put my sentiment on the inside. 


I used Whimsy’s amazing Happy Halloween Word Die for my sentiment.  I also used the bat eye from the “Eye Scream” Stamp set.  I cut off the wings to replace the “o” in Halloween. I love the font of this Happy Halloween Word Die so much! It evokes very spooky vibes!! 

 Presto! A simple Halloween Card that your gore-loving friends and family will love this Spooky Season!!! I would like to give Whimsy Stamps a big, Giant THANK YOU for letting me be a part of  the Halloween Blog Celebration!!! I had so much fun creating this card! I hope you all have a very fun and memorable Halloween Season!!! Take care! -Marie
