Halloween Wreath

Halloween Wreath | by karen @ carefree creations

A special Halloween card for my sister-in-law who *loves* Halloween more than anything!

I’m sending this in a package, so I could do lots of depth. The watercolor panel is up on foam; the wreath is 5 layers thick; and the sentiment uses quite a few dimensionals!

This card sat on my desk for weeks before I was able to finish it to satisfaction. I had found the inspiration on Pinterest ages ago, and even picked out the sketch I wanted to use. I think putting all those eyes on was intimidating because it required planned randomness!

My original watercoloring included a bit of stencil painting over a lighter background, but it was just too much going on. I put more ink on the panel to make it darker and bigger (and cover up the stencil pattern) and I liked it much better.

Thanks for taking a peek!
