Happy Halloween: Super simple Striped Background without a Stencil

Hello Crafters! 

Whew buddy it's been a minute! 
The last two weeks of my life have been a whirlwind of activity that didn't leave a lot of time for videos. Sorry! 

Before we get into the card...
Happy Halloween! 

Peanut and I went as Cleopatra and a Mummy


I let him pick his costume and then I match it. This year was a struggle. After finally settling on Cleopatra I had to accept the wig situation. 
eeek.
 Me + short black hair = ewwww
hahahaha

Alright to the card!


Sooo long story short me and Miriam made the same card. I totally didn't realize it until after the fact and decided to share it anyway. Great minds think alike and all that jazz. Seriously, she is super talented and I would encourage you to check out her blog. 


I kept this one super simple and let my cute little witch be the star of the show. I used some masking tape to create my own striped background with some distress ink and love the way it came out.  There's something classy about a bold stripe, am I right? 


I colored up my characters with Copics. I stuck to a limited color palette but I had a few tricks to switch up the colors so all the black didn't blend in with each other. 

You can check out the video below 

Even though it was really quick and the layout is so simple I love the card. 
It just feels so clean to me :) 



Thank you so much for stopping by! 
I'll see you again soon!
