Challenge 85 - Halloween

Hi, it's Carol here and it's my first time of hosting the challenge so please be gentle with me. For the theme of the challenge I picked "Halloween", it is a time of the year I love. I mean what is not to love about witches, ghosts, sweeties and things that go bump in the night.

For my creation this month, I used stamps from the Angelica Strange and Malcolm Strange sets which are part of the fabulous newly launched Spook Street.It is perfect for this time of year, but versatile enough to use all year round.  I decided to try something different for my card and got super inky for my card, and used emboss resist techinique*faints* both of which I very rarely do.

I hope you can join us this month for a chance to win a great prize. Why not have a look at the other DT girlies creations? 

For my Halloween themed project this month I decorated a little treat bag for Halloween goodies! I used Sarah's Large Crackle Background stamp and stamped it on orange card stock. A ticket from one of the Sarah Hurley Digital Kits, distressing and a few other embellishments finished it off nicely!

I used the adorable Angelica from the brand new kit for Halloween called 31 Spook Street.


My Halloween card uses Sarah Hurley's new 31 Spook Street digi scrapbooking kit. I adore all the embellishments, papers and digi stamps, well almost everything in this set. I used Angelica Strange, the little girl in the set plus Muffin- the cat and other spooky cute elements, bats, pumpkin and others.

I've made a scrapbook layout using the papers from the 31 Spook Street collection. I added a splash of rich gold Cosmic Shimmer Ink to the cardstock, then just used 3 strips of paper from the kit which I distressed with an emery board. I added 2 journaling spots from the kit & some white fabric Thickers. 


I have created the scene by printed and decoupaging elements from the new cute Halloween kit
 31 Spook Street, I just adore the little owl.


This month I used some papers and the Star Gazer stamp from Sarah's latest 'Few of my Favourite Things' kit. The image is made up of various stamps...Dream a Little Dream and 'Be Amazing'. I created the crackling effect on her dress using one of the mini background stamps. More details are on my blog.

This month I have used a witch image from the Witching hour which I have coloured with Promarkers. I then covered the tag with papers from 31 Spook Street.
The element are all from the sticker sheet in the Witching Hour pack.
I finished the tag off with ribbons from my own 


I have used some of the fabulous papers from 31 Spook Street to make a bright
Halloween Card.

I have also used the fang-tastic (see what I did there) 31 Spook Street kit to make my ghostly drawers ;)
