wishing you a hauntingly fun Halloween
This week's Stampavie challenge is to use Spooky Colors. I had to use one of the adorable new images from Tina Wenke, Halloween Pumpkin with Spider. This Halloween release is super limited so grab them while you can! I've heard some retailers were upset that they didn't get them ordered in time. Lacey has them in stock in her store here and they're on sale this week. The orange paper sack, orange baker's twine, hand dyed orange and black baker's twine, orange carnival ticket, and black wrinkle ribbon are from my etsy store.
I created a fun little tag with my image and used it to decorate one of the orange paper sacks from my etsy store. I love the orange and black sacks for Halloween goodies. I stamped my image on white cardstock and colored it with copic markers (YR02, YR04, YR07, Y38, YG13, YG17, YG67, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9). Then, I cut my tag shape, sponged black ink around the edges, and stitched around the edge before adhering it to my black layer. I stitched first so you can't see the stitching on the back. Then, I wrapped some orange baker's twine around the bottom of my tag. Then, I tied a green button with some hand dyed orange and black baker's twine and adhered it to my tag. I stamped my sentiment on an orange carnival ticket, added a black circle behind it and some green buttons stitched with orange baker's twine. Then, I adhered my sentiment with foam adhesive. I finished off my gift bag by tying some black wrinkle ribbon around it, stitching a white button to the center of the bow, and tying my tag to my ribbon with baker's twine.
I mentioned some baker's twine that I have hand dyed orange and black. It's a fun, custom item to add to your Halloween cards and projects. I don't plan to dye any more so it will be first come, first serve. You can find it here in my etsy store.
Come join us in the challenge! It's the last challenge for the year so the design team can get started on projects for CHA. Have a great day!
