Spoooooky

Getting in the spirit of Halloween I created these ghoulish characters. I started with old cabinet cards. After looking at the person for a bit and deciding which creepy character I thought they would be best as I painted the background black. For the devil I needed to create a hand but for the witch her hands were in the perfect position to hold her broomstick. It was a super fun project that was quick and would be great in a little frame for holiday decor. If you don't like the idea of using the old picture just make a copy of the original and mount it on some recycled cardboard from a cereal box (or anything really) with white glue. I used acrylics, a black sharpie pen and a white gel pen but use anything you use on these!
