We all feel that everyone has something to share and we can all learn from each other! Being different can be a good thing!
With that being said ... here is today's challenge. Make a creation with a Halloween theme using NO Halloween images! Get creative and think of using Halloween colors and images you can "turn into" something for Halloween.
Here is what I've come up with ...
As you can see, I have used the circle from the Hero Arts Friends stamp set to create my "pirate moon". Stamped in summer sun ink, edged with pumpkin pie ink, diecut using Nestabilities (classic circles) and matted with basic black cs. The pieces for the eyes, nose & mouth were punched with an EKSuccess pumpkin punch. A smaller Nestie circle created the patch and the a round tip black marker was used for the "bands" that hold on an eye patch.
Papers used were basic black, pumpin pie and homemade background paper created by sponging various inks (old olive, pumpkin pie, really rust & summer sun) onto a piece of white cardstock. Tearing, distressing and faux stitching added texture to the panels. The sentiment is by Vap! Scrap and stamped with Versafine black ink and embossed with Detail Clear ep.
Please be sure to stop by the other DT members blogs for even more inspiration.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by today ... it means the world to me!!
