Spooky DT post for Crafty Calendar....

Hi bloggers! Well the beginning of another month (where has this year gone??) but that does mean a new challenge over on the Crafty Calendar blog! The theme this month is.... Hallowe'en - did you guess?

Our sponsors this month are:

I made a few box type cards last year and decided to make another one.
You can find the measurements for this card on my templates tab.
I used a Stampendous stamp I've had for a while - Hallowe'en Sprite & stamped with black Archival ink onto white card. I coloured her using Distress Inks  - using them as paints. I decided to use my foils to add some shine, so I went around the flourish with a quickie glue pen. When the glue had gone 'tacky' I applied some copper metallic rub on foil. Then I went around her wings & the Hallowe'en letters with the glue pen & applied some blue metallic foil to the wings & gold foil to the letters. Applied some copper foil to the feather on her hat & added a few spots onto her wings. Inked around the edges using spiced marmalade DI.
I made the box type card from some white card, applied some orange mirri board to the top part, & some brown leather look card to the rest of the card. I matted the sprite image onto some of the leather look card & adhered this to the orange foil.
I stamped the pumpkins onto white card using spiced marmalade DI & some chocolate ink. The face was stamped in black Archival ink. I cut these out, applied some stickles to the face parts.
I stamped the 'boo' (from the same stamp set as the pumpkins) onto white card using black Archival, cut around them. Inked around the edges using crushed olive DI.
I had some Hallowe'en rub ons, placed one of the images onto white card, rubbed it on & cut out.
I adhered 2 of the pumpkins & the rub on to the front of the box part of the card, 2 of the 'boo's' on top of the box part. I made a couple of card 'danglers & hung the rest of the pumpkins & a 'boo' onto these & hung them off the top of the card.
Hope you like it.

DT post for Creative Artiste.

Hi everyone! Time for challenge number 7 over on Creative Artiste - the sponsor this month is:

The theme this month is LACE & PEARLS.
The images I have used for my project have come from the digis called 'Stitchy Fall'.
Once I had downloaded these I found I had backing papers, coloured images & images to colour. These can all be resized.
I printed off some coloured images - printed these quite large, then I printed some smaller images to colour.
I printed off two of the backing papers onto copy paper. I wanted these on a canvas but didn't want to stick them on so I decided to try some Golden Medium. I spread this out onto the top and bottom of the canvas, placed the backing papers, face down, onto the medium. I made sure the paper was well attached to the canvas then left to dry. Once dry I wet the paper then carefully rubbed away the paper with my finger until the pattern appeared.
I painted across the middle of the canvas with orange acrylic paint.
Added some gold Rub'n'Buff around the edges of the canvas and where the backing papers met the acrylic paint.
Once I had cut out the large images I decided to get my melt pot out - melted some thick embossing powder & coated each of the large images to give them a bit of shine.
Printed out one of the sentiments onto white card, edged with distress ink then dipped that into the melt pot as well. Attached this to some burlap.
Added some lovely wine coloured lace around the large pumpkin & sunflower. Added some white pearls on the pumpkin. Also some heart pearls around the canvas.
Arranged all my elements until I liked the arrangement, then stuck everything down.
Added a couple of gold silk flowers.
Hope you like this month's challenge over at Creative Artiste & my project - pop over & see the other DT's makes & enter the challenge.
