cQc # 211 ~ Trick or Treat!

Hey there my sweet peeps! How about another fun inspiration photo and color combo from the ColourQ! I went with a too cute to spook idea this week using a sweet little ghost.  Have a look...



Isn't this FUN!!! I bought a ghost die cut years ago with the intention of using it as a pattern. I've created several cards with it and thought I would turn one into a shaker to share with you today. I have no idea who the die is from, I picked it up from a collection of pre-made die cuts from a scrapbook store that has since closed.  

I dry embossed a white panel, then traced my ghost and cut with a craft knife. Note to self...be sure to have new blades on hand LOL!!! Next up I added the acetate and created the shaker portion using foam tape. I filled the bottom half of the ghost with sequins and backed it with another white panel. A hand cut bow tie and hole punched Washi tape eyes dress this little fella up for trick or treat. My cute DeNami sentiment fits this card perfectly!



Can't wait to see what you create, have fun!! ~Lisa
