Happy Haunting

Halloween Card Making Has Begun!!!!!  And I am so excited if you can’t tell.

Oddball Art is literally just releasing this collection of Baby Boos and you can find it today in the online shop under IMG458 Baby Boos.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art aFor this card, I took each of the individual png images, and layered them together, purposely making them different heights.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art dTo finish this project off, I adhered in a digital sentiment into the inside of the card after matting it on some black cardstock.  I know I don’t normally finish off the inside of the card, however, I just couldn’t ruin the scene with a matted sentiment.

Are you as excited as I am about halloween projects being on the horizon?  When do you traditionally start?  Is July too soon?  Alas it probably is, but I was excited to color these images non the less.
