πŸ’€ Trick or Treat Balleigh Monsters Film FrameπŸ’€
Slimline card by Leigh
My Day 5 of 31 Days of Halloween Hop inspiration for you today is a spooktacular Trick or Treat filmstrip slimline card featuring 3 Balleigh Monsters!
With bats flying in the spooky twilight sky it's time for Ghost, Germie and Vampire Balleigh Monsters to head out for their night of haunting!  Don't these fluffballs look creepy cute all dressed up in their Halloween costumes and posing for their photos next to a Jack o' Lantern, LOLπŸŽƒ
I sized all 3 Balleigh Monsters to fit inside the filmstrip windows and created the little scenes for each one with the bats included in the Ghost Balleigh Monster set and the Jack o' Lantern included in the Vampire Balleigh Monster set.
I printed out the scenes onto Neenah bright white cardstock and coloured the Balleigh Monsters with Copics and the background with Prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits.

I made a slimline folded card base and cut the Trick or Treat Film Frame, Silhouette Design Store cut file by Tanya Batrak, out of Crafter's Companion heavy weight cardstock.
  I added strips from a sheet of mixed media cardstock coloured with Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry Oxide Sprays and Tarnished Brass Distress Stain Spray, down both sides of the filmstrip and completed my card by adhering the frame to the slimline folded card base.

This was such a fun card to create and makes perfect Halloween cards for kids of any age and adults too!
