Behind the Masks

The moment I saw the Halloween Mask free digi at Too Many Ideas I knew I had to make another magic picture card featuring my dogs. I have this cute photo of them as Superman and Batman (if you use your imagination), and I figured that if I used printable transparency paper the project would be a relative breeze. And it was! Relatively! So I spent extra time making frames in SCAL. Once I had put everything together, I felt like it needed something else, so I asked my husband for ideas to which he immediately replied, Crescent moons. And of course I have a moon detail from one of Therese's digis that I could easily use. I used DDCC #89 (Halloween and black, orange, purple & green) as inspiration, and Core'dinations cardstock for texture. It's difficult to see in these photos, but I colored some of the mask details with a Sakura glitter pen. The sentiment is Happy Halloween from a couple of characters! in Harrington, and you'll notice that the whole family signed it!
