Eyes Shaker Card

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Since we're showing off new Halloween images, it seemed the perfect time to bring out my neglected fluorescent markers & neon ink. If you can't use 'em on Halloween, then when? I really had fun using them to color all the bottles of potions & poisons. Yep...that's a tasty looking bunch! After I colored them, I masked a few of them & added the bubbles.  Love the greeting for Halloween so I planned to have a big ol' jar of "eyeballs" to go along with everything. After die cutting the jar out of the front, I die cut a top out of metallic silver & added just a little coloring to the jar part of the cut out. I put a piece of acetate w/ some foam tape around it, behind the cut out & carefully placed some googlie eyes before sticking it down.
I came across a piece from the center of some die cut & it just looked like it could be the background for the eyes. So I stamped the eyeball twice w/ neon green ink, added a bit of neon shading & stamped the greeting on top. The spider webs were stamped once w/ the neon ink and again w/ the black then a couple of punched spiders added to finish.  These are the Copics I used and below it is a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! And don't forget to check out the DRS Designs Thursday Challenge..this week, Flying High ( have something that flies). There's a really nice prize up for grabs!
