When I first found out that the theme for Macabre Monday was HDH103 Carnival of Curiosities over at Haunted Design House I just knew I wanted to do something with a creepy clown. Plus, over at Bitten by the Bug2 they are having a Happy Hauntings challenge and you are to create a project using a frame from that Cricut cartridge. I had the idea to create a card using the skeleton frame to represent a mirror (you know like the ones you'd see at a creepy carnival attraction) and of course the creepy clown. His face is translucent, almost ghost like and then you can see just a very slight dark image behind that face, it's a scull....SPOOOOOOKY!!!
I created this card in Design Studio.
I used these Cricut cartridges:
Happy Hauntings for the inside scull and frame, welded and cut at 8 1/4. I also have 3 layers on the front of the frame.
Wrap it Up for the clown
Paper Doll Dress Up for the bow
I attached a tinsel like fuzzy ball to the top of the clown's hat and outlined his face with a white gel pen. I flocked the clown's nose with Martha Stewart flock. I used a clear stamp on the inside that just says, "SPOOKY."
I am so pleased with the way this turned out...totally creepy...the exact look I was going for!!! I hope you like it too and thanks for stopping by!
