This week the theme is

Halloween/Spooky

There are so many fabulous products available for this time of year! Whether you choose to go 'too cute to spook' or dark and scary, we can't wait to see what you create!

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Please pop by to see what Tenia and the DT have made!! Terrifying creations they are!!! ;-) 

I made a card and treat bag using a Tim Holtz Haunted House Stamp Set and a Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag Die 


For the background I belnded Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks and then used an Echo Park Creepy Bats Stencil and Black Ink. I stamped the images using Simon's Intense Black Ink and then used a Copic Multiliner to completely color the witch and cat, making them into a silhouette ;-) 




I used the same Creepy Bats Stencil for the treat bag but sponged white pigment ink through and then embossed with white embossing powder. It would have been better to use glow in the dark, but I don't have any, YET! a little pot is currently en route ;-) 


and I added a Wicked Tim Holtz Typed Token ;-) 


Thanks for looking!
