Halloween is looming and although it wasn't celebrated hugly when I was younger it's slowly getting there and it is now more of a fun holiday, though I think we still have a way to go to catch up with our US cousins.
Our challenge this time over at Creative Craft challenges is Trick or Treat.
What a wide and varied choice of project you can create with a title like that. It could be goodies for all the little ghouls and ghosties that will come a visiting or maybe you are practicing some spooky food in preparation for a party. Maybe a party decoration or fancy dress costume of some dark and sinister character or maybe just a simple halloween message in the form of a card. The list of possible interprtations is many. I'm sure we will see lots of greens and oranges and purples too and off course black and white.
The Crafy Pad. It has quite a few of the typically thought of halloween components , pumpkin , bats,broom and lucky black cat. I decided to add an embossed spiders web and sprayed my card with some moonglow spray for a bit of sparkle. My image I coloured with promarkers then went over with a clear embossing ink pen and clear embossing powder. Once it had cooled down I used a brayer and some dye based inks to achieve the gradient effect . The clear powder means that if you're quick you can wipe the ink off those areas with something like kitchen roll and they shine through. It beats trying to go around the edges of the image.
My second card I made a tent card as I'd been given this image in a rak. I've been told by Sandra that she thinks it's a Pink Gem image. I again coloured her in with promarkers and just cut her out and attached her with some fishing line as I have put my bag of link loops somewhere so safe I can't find them.
