Halloween WhichCraft - FSC #33



Trick or treat? Treat, I hope! :).

And what a treat I have for you, my friends. I bring you a brand spankin' new Fashionable Stamping Challenge!


This time we challenge you to use Halloween colours. Bewitch us with a Halloween themed project or any kind of whichcraft based on a Haloween colour palette. Trick or treat us - the choice is yours lol ;).

I've recently been to a crafty trade event and I was super impressed with a gorgeous collection of art that my new crafty friend Kim had with her (ps. make sure to check out her blog as she creates lovely stuff!). It made me realise that I don't have anything that I could travel with, to show off the kind of projects I create. I'm not an ATCs gal and the projects I do usually go to a new home shortly after they were made... So... I've decided to make more tags. In case you've missed it, you might like to check out my previous post with a napkin art tag:).

But back to my project. I started off with a white tag cut out from card using Movers and Shapers Tags die. First I inked the background with Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Fired Brick distress inks. Then I sprayed some Tattered Angels mists through stencils. After that I stamped some Blood Splatters to fit in better with the Halloween theme lol :).



The edges of my tag were then stamped with Word Collage Border stamps. And of course I could not leave the tag without my beloved Fran-tage technique, so I treated my tag with Aged Wine Embossing Enamel and Trick or Treat Colour Fragments, which are perfect for Halloween makes.




Then I cut the dress form from a recycled card and covered it with tissue paper, which I first inked up and stamped with the Roses stamp. Then I dressed my Halloween gal with a suitable attire, using some ribbons and died lace. My Halloween lady could not have been left without any means of transport to the Halloween party so... I made one for her, using tiny twigs from my garden :)).




That's all for now my friends, I'm putting my witch's hat on and I'm off to do some trick or treating :). Please make sure to check all the fantastic projects created by the Fashionettes and I look forward to seeing what you create! Thanks for popping in and your sweet comments.

Big hugs
