Haunted Techniques

I spent the day resting, but when Mike decided to play video games in the bedroom I figured I could try to play a little. I got very frustrated when my first attempt at this card failed miserably. The stupid Hero Arts background stamp didn't stick to the acrylic block and ruined the image. So I had to toss it out and start over again. I embossed both the Graphic 45/Hampton Arts owl stamp and the Hero Arts spider web with black. Then I used my inks to create the purple/orange background. I coloured in the owls and the sentiment with my Copics and then added a few stickers, some washi tapes, and a new piece of Carta Bella paper. Which is a surprisingly high quality, btw.
 Seeing Mike still wanted to shoot things, I decided to go for one more card. More simple this time and less frustrating! I took a Bo Bunny stamp and paper pieced it with MME 6x6 papers. I also punched out some skulls for a little border, but they don't show up too well. I need to use more contrast next time. More washi, and some stickers and I was done. Although, I don't really like the voodoo doll on there. I should probably take him off.
