Boo! with a wobble

Happy friday all, I actually had to stop and think what day it is then, thats what happens when my hubby and son are both at home. Hubby has been on holiday this week so all my days have been weekend days hence my having to think. Never mind about my dizzy brain time for an early halloween card. The central image on my card is the freebie provided by birdie brown and once I'd coloured with my promarkers I decided as the pumpkins were drawn to look like they were wobbling or shaking I thought it might be fun to try and make that happen with at least one of them.
To do this I cut out the left hand pumpkin and using fine florist wire that I use when making flower paste flowers I made a small wide loop spring by winding round one of my promarker pens. I then stuck one end of the spring on the back of the pumpkin and positioned the pumpkin where it should be before sticking it to the card.

The image hopefully shows the gap this created and also how the pumpkin looks still in place on the card.

I didn't have any halloween papers so created a background with some really old mini halloween stamps that were bought when my son was little and had time for fun things like crafting, now its not interesting unless it has a computer chip and a screen somewhere he even reads books using technology more that the paper variety, that's the next generation for you lol.
I kept it simple just printing with black on the white background as I thought this would make the image which is coloured stand out more.

I decided to continue the design with the sentiment inside by adding cob webs and a spider to the halloween greeting, still simple but overall I was pleased with the effect and thought it was quite effective.

I made the card with one of my young nephews in mind so as boys tend to like the creepy things at halloween I thought the spider was a good finishing touch.
