Who's That Ghost?

You might guess that they're bunnies from the peeping ears...

but might be surprised to open the gate (creeeeaaakkkk!) and find them dressed as ghosts! Trick or Treat!! (I love interactive cards!)
Aren't these Flopsey bunnies from My Favorite Things the cutest? The bunny from "Who's That Ghost" is stamped twice with Palette Noir on Whisper White and shaded with a Gray Koh-I-Noor pencil. I staggered the bunnies so they would look like they're hopping, hard to see but Iadded a tiny shadow underneath each with my pencil on the black CS... Flopsey's little treat bag is pieced from the Basic Grey "Cupcake" pack.

The gate was very simple to make, simply cut a piece of brown CS the length of your card or mat and cut the top with a scalloped or zigzag edged pair of scissors for the picket tops. Then draw a line down from the "v" between each hump with a black pen to make the boards. Add some little dots for nails if desired. To create the wood grain, swipe your CS directly onto a brown ink pad, pulling the pad down the same direction as your lines, repeat with a black pad for even more texture . Now score 1/3 of the way over on one side and cut 1/3 of the way over on the other. Fold the score back, and adhere each side leaving the folded opening loose to open and close

I stamped my greeting from this set on a die cut circle, also from Basic Grey "Cupcake", and adhered halfway off the square card to look like the moon rising.
More spooky scary projects to come! Have a great day!
