Boo Windows Card Photo Tutorial

There is a contest at Marker Pop's blog currently of creating a video or of doing a photo tutorial of a fall project.  It has been a while since I did a photo instruction so thought I would give it a shot with a Halloween "windows" card.  First I cut a 5x7 inch black cardstock base for a three windows card front.  I thought it would be cute to use just the faces from the Pink and Main Spook-tacular clear stamp set.  I decided to heat emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder.

I used a VersaMark ink pad to stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner of the black cardstock base.

I sprinkled white embossing powder on the stamped sentiment and tapped off the excess.  I then heat set the sentiment.

I stamped the three images with a black ink pad using my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform (which I LOVE).  It is so nice being able to get a perfect image using it!  I ordered extra magnets for mine so I have six to hold my paper securely without movement.

I used Spectrum Noir and Copic alcohol markers to color only the faces and necks plus the hands on the Frankenstein image.

Now you are ready to create the "windows" on your card front.  I used a 1 3/4 inch circle punch by EK Success to make the three windows.

I fussy cut each stamped and colored head image.  You want them to appear to be peeking out the circle "window."  I chose to back the windows with orange, kiwi green and purple cardstocks to add more color.

I adhered a strip of spider web patterned washi tape to the front.  I had some pretty glittered purple letters by Jillibean Soup to spell "boo" over the washi tape.  I also glued some large orange and green googley eyes to the front of the card

Here is the finished card.  Now wasn't that easy?  

These fun peeking Halloween characters will be playing at the following:
