Hey friends! I’m over on the Scrapbook Pal blog today and we’re having some spooky cocoa. The weather is changing and things are getting ooky spooky around here! It’s great since this is my favorite time of year!
I had 2 new goodies from Lawn Fawn that I have been dying to use and thought it would be so much fun to combine them! So today we’re having Halloween themed cocoa with some ghostly steam rising from our cup!
I created my Lawn Fawn Stitched Mug shaker mechanism, filled it with fun embellishments from Trinity Stamps and sealed it up. Then I stamped and colored my Lawn Fawn Booyah ghosts with copics, using the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I used liquid glue to adhere the accessories to each ghost.
To create my background, I used some Tombow brush pens on watercolor paper and did some messy ink smooshing. I always have so much fun with this technique! Once it was dry, I trimmed it to 4×5.25 and popped it up on a black card base with foam tape. I adhered my whipped cream and spoon to the back of my mug and glued it directly to the card front, while the ghosts were popped up with foam squares. (The whipped cream came from the frosting of the stitched cupcake dies from Lawn Fawn.)
Then I stamped and heat embossed a banner from Bannertastic and a sentiment from Booyah and die cut it. I used a quickie glue pen to adhere my banner, trying to hide the glue behind the embossing lines.
For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the Frankenghost’s eyes, glossy accent’s to the witch’s hat buckle and spider and white gel pen accents throughout the images.
I had so much fun mixing and matching and making things a little spooky for Halloween!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
