Happy Haunting at Creative Inspirations

Hello there! I hope you are well! We're all good - the girls had a Harvest day at school yesterday and had a ball - they were split into 4 groups and cycled around 4 different activities - they did some gardening, some singing, made apple and blackberry crumble and made little harvest mice! It all sounded wonderful - what a fabulous day for them! I had another crafternoon with mum too - we made the tag card from Sheenas tutorials - wonderful stuff - hopefully will add that to tomorrows post!

Over at Creative Inspirations (cinspirations) this week's challenge is Happy Haunting.

This week's prize is from us and is the chance to be our GUEST DESIGNER FOR NOVEMBER!


Here's what I did using the wonderful Harriet-Witchy-Ride from Crafty Sentiments ....if you're quick she may still be on special price!







Firstly I used the white remnant rubs from Tim Holtz to add the words then created the background with distress inks - chipped saphire, seedless preserves and a smidge of black soot. I cut a circle and covered it with versamark and added white WOW powders and heat embossed. Harriet is coloured with promarkers and cut out. The bats are made using an Imagination crafts stencil and black stars sparkle medium. The happy Halloween is from another Tim Holtz stamp and die set!
