MDS Blog Hop - Halloween!

Good morning! And it is a good morning in the VanDyne house, the girls don't have school today and I don't have to work. Yay! (Which also means I'm on time with my post today - don't faint!)

Today we were challenged to do something, anything having to do with Halloween. Last year I did a paper card like this for our holiday card day and it was a hit, so I wanted to re-create it digitally for this challenge. BUT I wasn't sure how to do the hair (for the paper one we just chopped up a black Top Note shape and glued it on top). Can't really do that in MDS! But what I could do in MDS is use the new Freeform tool in MDS2. (It's in the right-hand menu, right below "Stamps")

With the Freeform tool you can click "Add Brush Layer", then choose the color and size of your brush. It will let you draw anything on anything! For a doodler like me, I love it! I used it to add Frank's mouth too.

I put Frank on a tall postcard and used layered punches for his eyes and nose (and face with the Top Note!).

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to go check out the other Halloween MDS Hoppers this week - the links to their posts/blogs are below!
