Squirts For Squirts

According to the dictionary, "squirts" can either be "to  eject liquid in a jet" OR "a small or young person". The liquid used was some Distress markers ejected with one of those Tim Holtz squirting thingy's AND this is for one of the grand children for Halloween.  So, we have squirts for squirts!

I used Monster Mash from Lawn Fawn.  After stamping and masking the images, I also masked off the rectangle in the center and squirted it down with the Distress markers in some orange, green, and yellow type colors.  The squirts were colored with Copics and then I added a tiny google eye to the center squirt.  A couple of enamel dots were added using the Paint Pen.  A little doodling was done around the rectangle and the sentiment stamped.   A one layer card for Halloween!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Lawnscaping Challenges - one layer.
Thanks for stopping by..........
