My BIL said his son would love the roped ghost because of all the rodeos they enjoy out in the Denver area. I was giddy the entire time I was making this because I looked at the rope and knew I just had to try to replace it with a real rope. LOL Thank goodness for crystal effects because it's such a strong adhesive and holds instantly. I just hope it doesn't tear away from the card in the mail. Just to be sure, I'll have to use a protective mailer when sending this to the nephew.
I tried my best to keep the images in their original positions on the stamp and the same curves for the rope. I decided to completely remove Itty Bitty Betty's tufts of paper hair and replace it with real hair. Don't you love it?! I didn't add as much colour or blush to Itty Bitty Bobby's face because vampires are supposed to be pale. On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment "Scary, Scary, Screamy, Screamy, Happy, Happy Halloweenie" et voilà!
