Stamptacular Challenge 29

Hello everyone, this is a scheduled post as I'm currently on my holidays. For Stamptacular Challenge 29 we have a Spooktacular theme, well in the UK we don't really make halloween cards in the same way as you do in the states, and consequently I have no halloween stamps, so I had to the best I could with what I had!!! This week we have two fabulous sponsors: Simon Says Stamp who are offering a $25 gift certificate and free shipping and Digital Stamp Oasis who are offering 5 digi images of the winners choice.

I have made a gift card/treat holder and I have coloured my gorjuss girl image with distress inks and cut her out so she is sitting on the ribon. The papers are from my stash and I'm not sure of the brand.

This shows the inside. There is a little pocket at the bottom to slip in some treats and a white panel in the top section to write a greeting. The holder can stay closed on its own, or you can do as I have and incorporated a ribbon into my design so it can be tied closed.

Card/Paper: Black and white card, Paper from my stash
Stamps: Sugar nellie - gorjuss girl
Colouring: Distress inks - black soot, tattered rose, spiced marmalade, weathered wood
Embellishments: Ribbon
Tools: Water brush

Thanks for looking x
