Off To The Halloween Party!


Crafty Creations (38) - All Hallow's Eve

Truly Scrumptious (18) - Sketch + Autumn

The Rainbow Lady (78) - Halloween

Stamp Something - Halloween Somethings

Stampin For The Weekend (21) A Haunting Good Time

Penny Black (72) - Halloween

Secret Crafter (55) - Orange + One Other Colour

One Stop Crafts (52) - Celebration

When I saw these challenges I immediately thought of a Halloween Party so this young lady is all dressed up ready for the party. The image was first stamped onto white card and then onto the spotty paper. I then cut out her clothes and bag from the spotty paper image and added these to the other image. I then coloured in the stripes on her stole with a MLP pen. To give her some glitz I coloured bits with a Sakura Stardust pen. I covered the white base card with black card and orange spotty paper and added three pieces of ribbon. I stamped the sentiment, layered it and attached with foam pads. I finished it by adding some orange and black flowers and a little black heart gem. Hope you like it.
