Trick or Treat

It is my turn on the big Stamping Scrapping Designs nestability compatible stamps blog hop!!!! ! luck person will win some free stamps at the end of this blog hop!!! You need to leave a comment on every design team members blog each day of the hop and you will be entered in the drawing. I have used some of the stamps from the Holidays Set to make my project.

I cut a treat bag with my cricut out of some black core'dinations cardstock and then covered it with different patterns of paper from the Basic Grey Eerie collection.


Then I stamped and colored my images. I put a little bit of my E50 copic around the edges of the mummy to make him look a little more worn and not so white. Then I cut him out with my labels 4 nestability and inked around the edges with some black soot distress ink. I cut another paper pattern with the larger labels 4 dies and matted the mummy on that. I then air brushed some prima flowers with my copics so that they would fit in with the paper a little bit better. The V99 and V95 copcs go well with the purple in this paper.

I put added the Boo sentiment onto a mega curved rectangle die, embossed it, sanded and distressed it. Now, every treat bag needs some handles. I decided to use black tulle as the handles of this bag because I think it fits in with the whole eerie Halloween them. I hope you have enjoyed my treat bag. Please leave a comment to be entered in the drawing!!!
