Bat Eared Elephant - BOOOOO

Bat Eared Elephant - BOOOOO

When I saw the challenge to make a Halloween-themed project, I thought about what I had
and then what I didn't have.  I don't do Halloween cards much, not because I don't like
them,  I just haven't given any out in a very LONG time.

I couldn't turn down this challenge at Elizabeth Craft Designs, right here.   I love using dies
in different ways and had made an elephant, which was dark in color and I really didn't
care for it, but waste not, want not.  My imagination went wild and I drew a mask on him,
(having the raccoon in mind) with the tuft of hair also colored in black.  I left him overnight
and work up to thinking of him driving in a spooky jeep and added more black Copic marker
to the ears and trunk.    I found some wonderful ghosts, spider and web in an envelope from
 a friend sent a year or so ago.  The eyes glisten with Nuvo black and are outlined with a
uniball pen. Here is my vision come to life.

I had a ball with this.  Even if you don't have many Halloween characters, you can make
something a bit spooky.
