Stamp Something ,,,,,,, Halloween

WOW !! we had hundreds of entries to the Punch Something challenge and we hope you will all join us this week on the Stamp Something Challenge too :-)


We are sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts and the lovely Nikki will be giving one lucky entrant a £10 voucher to her store :-)

I followed the fabulous sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge, I rotated it and went a bit wrong ,, but i think it is close enough ,,, hope so !! :-)
I used this lovely Tilda With Pumpkin image that was an image from a blog buddy ,, I really need to get some Halloween stash !! I coloured the image with Copics , cut her out and popped her on a background I had made using distress inks ( brushed concord, stormy sky and black soot). Amy drew the spooky tree ( all the money for art lessons has finally paid off lol ) and the Scary Cat is a Tim Holtz (TH) stamp. The papers are from the Magnolia So Spooky Halloween set. I made the charm with black shrink plastic, White Stazon and a TH Skull stamp from the Anthology set the ticket is also made using a TH ticket die cut and stamp from the TH Odds and Ends set
