Trick or Trick Wall Decor

This is a project I made for Halloween to hang on my wall. I think I will probably put it in a frame before I hang it. This is post 1 of 2.

This is the whole project. There will be another photo in the next post. I used my Cricut, SCAL program, and Making Memories Slice. The Trick or Treat at the top is a file from the talented designer Tina Mansfield of Cardiology Creations. This is a close up of all 5 "monsters". There is an alien (at least that's what I think that's what that fluffy purple thing is lol!), Frankiestein, Witchypoo....with her scaredy cat, and a Mummy. I used the Cricut Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge to make all the monsters. The alien is cut at 3". I used a blue Sakura Gelly pen to go around the edge of the alien. It looks way coool in person. Frankiestein is cut at 3 1/2". His face is stamped on with a Peachy Keen stamp. I embellished his clothes with the same type of pen, only it was clear with just glitter.

Ms. Witchypoo is cut at 3". I gave her a broom and a cute little scaredy cat. The cat's eyes are a little hard to see, but they are made with a green glitter pen. The broom handle is hand colored with a brown marker and so are all the cuts on the broom bristles. I embellished the witches clothes with the clear glitter marker.
The Skeleton and Mummy are both cut at 3". For the skeleton I had to use a white pen to highlight all the bones. It took forever! But I am happy with how it came out. I also used googley eyes. For the Mummy I used a brush tip marker to highlight all the cuts and then used a glitter pen on top of the brush strokes. After that I used a Colorbox Cats eye ink pad on top of and around the edges of the mummy.
