All in all, they had fun, didn't lose patience, and proved to me that I chose the right type of cards for their age group to teach at school.
Over the next few days, I'll show you what we made. You can make these too! Just contact me to find out how!
This was their first card - they daubed the basic gray CS with classic black ink with a circle to mask the moon. Then they practiced stamping bats (from Googlie Ghoulies) on the basic gray CS and on the whisper white inside liner, and stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the page in craft white. They assembled the layers on the basic black CS, then added googly eyes (their favorite part--as they're already sticky on the back!). They opted not to do the white accent lines--and it looks great!
