The new Turner Surprise interactive die set was simply begging for a small scene and a small story to be revealed. And what would be cuter to use than the new Little Boo Agenda ghosts?
I started off cutting out all the Turner Surprise pieces I needed. For more information about how to use and assemble this set, please see this awesome video created by Rina, she’s much better at explaining it that I could ever be in writing.
Since I knew I wanted the slits to be at the bottom of the project, I stamped my images so my “ground” would be over the slits. For the smaller circle I stamped a small “go out with me” scene, where one ghost is giving a lollipop to another.
For the larger circle I stamped a wedding scene with a bride, groom and even a guest. I also added the ”I Love My Boo” sentiment. Then I made masks for the ghosts in the bottom half of the circles.
To make sure the background lined up, I temporarily stuck the two circles together using a bit of post it tape on the top so I could flip up the smaller circle. Then I mounted the cityscape from Me and My Robot in my MISTI, lining it up so the edges of it just touched the stitched edge of the largest circle. Then I could stamp it first on the small circle, flip that up and stamp it again on the larger circle.
Then I colored up both circles using my copics – if you’d like, you could create the last few masks and do some ink blending instead, but I thought the “painted” kind of look to the sky would be fun to make the scene a bit more interesting.
That way I could make a tag instead, which I will use on the Halloween goodie bag for my husband.
