Creepy Scarecrow

Cartridges: Oct.31 seasonal cartridge, Lacy Lables Lite Cartridge, Happy Hauntings
Card size: 5 1/2 by 4 1/4
Cardstock: Orange, Brown, Red, Black and Silver
Pattern Paper: SEI and My Minds Eye
Charcoal Chalk Ink, Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink, Glossy Accents, and black marker
Gypsy for Welding
The silver chain on the background was made using my gypsy,  I used the chain border from Oct. 31 and welded them together to make a frame the size of the card base.
The pattern paper was cut to fill the middle of the frame.
I cut the scallop oval from Lacy Lables using the gypsy to measure the scarecrow to fit in center.
I cut the scarecrow out with brown cardstock and used the black and brown chalk ink on the edges.
I attached all the layers and went around the pattern paper with a black marker to look like stitches.
On the scallops I added black dots to the scallops.
I cut out "Creepy" from Happy Hauntings in black for the shadow and red for the regular cut. Glued them together and went over the whole thing with glossy accents. Attached with pop-dots when dry.
I used a $1.00 stamp for the Happy Halloween, inked the edges and popped it up on the bottom. Enjoy!
