Hi there!  Here are the ATCs I made for the Surprise Halloween ATC Swap!  We had to make 3 random Halloween ATCs and send them to 3 random people.  It was quite fun!  ^_^

To make these, I found some free vintage photos online and had them printed through kinkos/fedex on some cardstock.  It worked out really well and it was pretty cheap, too!  I filled in the photos w/ watercolors.  Both the demon lady and the zombie has cheesecloth.  To apply it, I spread on some mod podge and then pressed on the cheesecloth.  I really like the effect it made!  I also employed my Elmer's painters paint pens to make the dots.  I'm really quite obsessed with them.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

 I like the first lady best. Her wings amuse me.
 Cheesecloth. I was just thinking about making those cheesecloth ghosts with my step-son. Way to think out of the box with it!

I love these!  You are so creative, jillybeans!  I love the literary bat wings!  The witchy lady looks like she's a librarian at her day job! Sneaky! Cheesy  And your zombie gentleman is so distinguished!  "Give me something good to eat", indeed!  Wink
