This was such a fun challenge this week. I played a bit fast and loose with the challenge, making Frankenstein instead of a traditional tag but I just couldn't help myself. Our twist this week is Halloween. I don't have any Mark's Finest Papers Halloween images so I decided to play with sentiments. The "Friend" came from the Winter Crocuses set. The "Good was a mash up of 3 words. The "G" is from a birthday set. The "oo"'s are from Country Charm and the "d" is from "Dogwood Blossoms." Normally I wouldn't mash fonts like this but for Frankenstein, it just works.
Frankenstein is made with a Label Nestie and I then fussy cut the hair. The nose is a leaf die that I then distressed the edges. I hand drew the mouth and added googlie eyes. The idea is not an original. I've seen hand-created Frankenstein's on Splitcoaststampers in the past.
I just love that this is a fun card without any scare factor. I am thinking of saving this for the neighbours who have small children. Who can be scared of this face?
