Monster Mash Halloween Card
October 15, 2022
Tami here on the Clear Scraps Blog with you today.
Can you believe it is almost time for Halloween!? Always seems to "creep" up on me ;) At least the weather is cooling off a bit here in South Texas now that it's October; It was almost in the 80's!
My kiddos are both grown so I don't have the usual bustle of costume making to keep me occupied in preparation for the holiday. Which leaves more time for some sPoOky crafting.
Have you ever looked at something and seen something other than what it was supposed to be? That's what happened the first time I looked at Clear Scraps Wings Chipboard Embellishments...
They are beautiful wings, perfect to add to a project, especially one with angels. But... for some reason, the top one reminded me of hair for a monster! I couldn't get the idea out of my head, so I decided to try it out on a Halloween card.
Here's what I came up with...
I thought my monster turned out pretty well! What do you think?
I painted the chipboard wings/hair with lime green paint that matched my printed papers. Of course he had to have googly eyes. I drew the nose in with a black marker and made the mouth and tooth from cardstock.
The face and hulking shoulders were cut from printed cardstock.
For a title, I painted Clear Scraps Spooky Chipboard Word Title orange to use as the sentiment. And how could I resist putting googly eyes in the two "o's? Obviously, I couldn't!
I think a banner of different versions of this monster would make a unique piece of Halloween decor. Or you could make tags to hang off of goodie bags using him.
I hope you enjoyed this project; please stop back by soon to see what other great projects the Clear Scraps Design Team has for you!
