CCREW1013DF - DSP/Colour focus: Celebrate Halloween by making a project using Witches' Brew dsp from p21 of the Holiday catalogue, or use the colour combo Basic Black, Basic Grey, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit and Very Vanilla.
I may have gotten a little carried away with this challenge! I love the playful aspects of Halloween and had so many ideas teeming in my brain that limiting myself to just one project was simply impossible!
I began with a candy box made from the fancy favour die and filled it with a bag of snakes - I even stamped on the cellophane bag!
Then I was really looking for an excuse to use this wonderful stamp from Halloween Bash, so I made a card to go with the box:
And then I made this BOO plaque using wooden letters covered in dsp. I found a cheap wooden plaque at the Reject Shop and painted over the picture, then went to town stamping and sponging to give it the look I was after. If you click on the photos to enlarge them you'll get a better view of the background stamping. I had so much fun making this it was scary!
