Ghostly Boo!: Bag Topper

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Hi there! It looks like these bag toppers are addictive for me! Here's another set:

I'll be entering this in Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge #140, just like the previous two sets, and also the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C109 challenge, to create something for an upcoming holiday and to incorporate heat embossing in your creation.
For this topper, I mixed up Mod Podge with white glitter and painted it on the ghost. You can see the sparkle pretty good in this photo:

After it dried, I used black Enamel Accents on the eyes to make them pop a little. I colored the shoes and legs with Copics. For the "Boo!" I stamped it in white Colorbox ink, then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Maybe a little overkill, but I wanted to make sure it showed up good on the black paper. As you can see, I used my new Scary Fence punch again. That little fence is so cute!

This bag topper was pretty easy...or maybe I'm just getting the hang of it, now. ;)

My DD wants me to make one more set for a few more friends, so you may be seeing me again soon, with a last set (I promise!), unless I take the easy way out and just make a few more of these easy ghostly toppers. :)

Before you go, check out my new blinking badge in my sidebar. I won the Tuesday Morning Sketches judged challenge #115 last week for my Paisley Hope card! TMS is a fun challenge, their sketches are awesome, and the DT is super inspirational. See for yourself here!

Oh my gosh, these are so cute! :)
Thank you for your comment on my blog - regarding the Dark Tower books, I wanted to tell you that if you get through the first book or two, you will be hooked! The first book is hard to really get "into" - but by the 3rd or 4th book, you will not be able to put it down! :) xo
