 Today at  Crafts 4 Eternity, we have a sketch and a halloween theme.

<< Here is the sketch.

I am entering this into the following challenges which all have a halloween theme:

Stamp With Fun
A Spoon Full of Sugar 
Creative Inspirations 
Dutch Dare 
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 
Stampin's For The Weekend
By The Cute & Girly

and finally, 'no white paper': The Corrosive Challenge.

I've struggled to get into the Halloween groove, which normally I love. I think because I was in the midst of Christmassy type things. Also I wasn't feeling very inspired by my Halloween rubbah!

I've used papers by Pink Paislee and My Mind's Eye. My Martha Stewart punches created the spider's web border & strip.

I embossed a Tim Holtz tag with the Sizzix Poison Texture Fades embossing folder. Then I used various inks, glimmer mists and gold paste to give it some character.

I gave the same treatment to a ticket cut from the Ticket Strip die and stamped it with a Tim Holtz halloween ticket stamp.

The cat is a Basic Grey chipboard piece from the Eerie collection. I spritzed it with glimmer mists and rubbed some stickles in.

Thank you for looking.
