Halloween is coming.....

We are so rural that we don't worry about buying candy for Trick or Treaters but we do send out goodies to our kids. This card and treat boxes will be getting mailed to one of the 3 soon but I just had to show them to you!



I made the card base with black cardstock then layered orange cardstock stamped with the BOO from the Spookalicious set. I stamped the images on white, faintly colored with Prismacolor H2O pencils and my Niji Water Brush. The eyes, as shown below, are colored with the Stardust Clear Gel pen. I did wipe the edges of the images with my Noir PH ink besides using it to stamp all my images.


I "googled" for the boxes and used some old Basic Gray cardstock to create them. The coloring on the above BOO was done using my Souffle Gelly Pens. The coffin box does not want to hold together and I think it looks kinda dorky but whoever gets it will still get a kick out of it. I used some black floss to help embellish the skeleton.



So, have you created any cute Halloween projects? Would love to hear about them!!
