so enough about my week, which was crap-tacular, and on to todays creation, which is spook-tacular!
Even though we don't celebrate Halloween here in Australia, i just could not resist all the Halloween challenges going on right now, and all that purple and orange is just wonderful, probably one of my fave colour combos, so festive! So in keeping with the theme I created a trick or treat bag:
Here is a shot without the flash, the colours are a bit more true to life:
This shot with the flash shows where i have used crystal effects on the lettering (cut using my sizzix machine) to make them lovely and shiny:
Here is a close up of Captain Ian (from the 'matey' stamp set) wouldn't you hand over all your candy to this little cutey if he came to your door? This is without flash and shows the colouring better (but still not as vibrant as in real life):
Here he is with flash. I have used my new cuttle bug spider web embossing folder as his background, isn't it the coolest!And lastly a gratuitous candy shot, mouthwatering!
Ok, down to business, this little project played along with a number of challenges;
- Anya Ink - Use printed paper (the awesome spider paper is from summertime designs, and the first time i have used digi papers, i realised when i started putting this together i had no Halloween papers, so much for planning ahead!)
- Simon Says Challenge - Halloween
- A Spoon Full of Sugar - Halloween
- ABC challenge - embossing
