Have you seen my mojo... it seems to be missing...

Ok. A little warning here. My mojo is missing and I don't know where it could be. I shut myself in my studio last night and this is all I could muster. Also, the lighting stinks right now because it is rainy, so the photos look yellow from my dining room light. Ick.
It is supposed to be one of those illusion-type-things where the smaller individual stamps aren't supposed to be the focus, but the overall picture is what you're after. Does that make sense? I had these scrap pieces of Bazzill Monochromatics and had already cut out these cool scallop cards with my Nestibilities, and decided to put them together.

Stamps: Running Stitches (eyebrows & forehead), Mini Occasions (cat/eyes, pumpkins), All Season Swirls (hat/nose), Boo Bash (sentiment/teeth), So Splattered
Paper: Bazzill Monochromatics (Violets & Yellow-Oranges), black cardstock
Ink: Noir Palette, Brilliance Moonlight White
Other: Nestibilities, Fantastix (for shading), pop dot, foam tape, hydra sponge

Yes, I know... very creepy... but other than that, what do you think? Did I at least get the illusion working?

Barb, That is so cool! I noticed it right away! Heather and I were just saying we can't wait to be able to order the new Halloween sets and we had decided that we should do exactly what you did--see what we could make with what we had. Very cool. I love it!

What a cool thing to have the big picture be the focus. Love the spooky face! I hear you about the light at night; one of my major pet peeves. But this looks fantastic anyhow! :O)
