Dress Up for Halloween; Faux Chipboard tutorial

  It's my turn up at the Pumpkin Spice blog.  The current challenge is "Dress Up."  I used papers and glossy accents that I purchased at the Pumpkin Spice store.  I love this paper collection by My Mind's Eye.  I have actually ordered it twice :)

For added dimension, I popped up the die cut frame with foam tape.  My bird (dressed as a ghost) also has nice dimension in real life.  That piece literally feels like chipboard; it is glued flat directly on the polka dot paper.

Faux Chipboard Tutorial:  I cut the die cut shadow on black card stock four times, then glued together.  I pieced the rest of the bird, bag, conversation bubble, and costume on top.

Supplies:
papers:  My Mind's Eye Blackbird "Argyle" (orange linen); "Costumes" (black polka dot); "Halloween Words" (green linen);  Card stock Accessories sheet (die cut frame); Bazzill Honey Dotted Swiss (yellow legs); black card stock; white card stock
Cricut cartridge:  3 Birds on Parade p.39 cut @ 2"
glossy accents
black fine tip marker (sentiment)

Happy Tuesday!
