5. Mummy Tea Light Holder

As soon as I saw that circles background die in the set I had this idea and ran with it! I used the circles I cut out with the die and used Nuvo Alcohol Markers to create different coloured eyeballs. I then stacked them up in a pile and sat the little monster on top to make a quirky (if not slightly disturbing) card. I really had fun with this one!
