Trick or Treat?!

Hello everyone!

I hope you are enjoying our creations for the 31 Days of Halloween!  Today, I have created a treat bag to share with you using a purple paper bag received from a vendor on a recent shopping trip. I love when I can recycle and create something crafty at the same time!!

This was loads of fun to make using up scraps of matching spooky papers.  The Happy Halloween Pumpkin has been stamped on green paper with black Versafine Ink and then clear embossed to give it a nice dark color and a glassy sheen.  I added some tule behind it with some black gems to make a dark medallion embellishment.

Thanks for dropping by!  We are looking forward to seeing your Dark and Twisty Halloween Creations entered in our current Third Coast Challenge for your chance to win free stamps!
