Inspire Me Tuesday-Ghost Shaker Card

Hello! It's "Inspire Me Tuesday" at MyCreativeTime today. I was inspired to create my card while watching Ghost Adventures this weekend. I love all the ghosty shows on TV. ;) On these shows, they're ALWAYS pointing out "orbs", so I thought I'd make an orby card. HA! Here it is...
I started by die cutting my ghosts with the new Stitched Spooky Ghosts Dies. Then I watered down some white acrylic paint and flicked it on with a brush to make the orbs ;)...... I used the negative of the cuts to create my shaker windows. I backed the ghosts with vellum and gave them faces from the Stitched Faces set from PeachyKeenStamps. It's a little hard to see, but the ghosts are filled with sequins. 
See the sequins in their bellies? :) I finished it off by white heat embossing a sentiment from the new set called Fright Night

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more projects. 

Have a SPOOKY day. ;)
