Paperbag Studios All Hallow's Eve



(please click to enlarge image, as theres something on top of the writing that you can't really see too well otherwise)

This months challenge over on Paperbag Studios carries a Hallowe'en theme. Use any Paperbag Studios stamps to create a Hallowe'en themed piece of artwork- it can be a card, tag, 3D piece...anything you fancy making. All the challenge info can be found here(click link) or on the left sidebar of my blog.

Here I used some of the PBS digi stars and background paper by printing them out on a printer, cutting them out and mixing them amongst the stamped images.

The stamps I used are Empty (chair), various stitches from the Stitched and Tied plate and the Prestige (diamonds) stamp.

Its also worth taking a wander over to Donna Downeys blog today to be in with a chance of a very special giveaway by Roben Marie as they are sponsors.

On Friday of this week I'll be showing a few sneak peeks using 'Empty' that appear in the Craft Stamper issue due out at the end of this week.

I hope that isn't a real spider that just wandered into some gtlossy accents while you were leaving it to dry... it could happen!!!

I have just purchased my first Paperbag studio stamps, but they are not very halloweeny. I will have to put my creative thinking cap on to try to make them so. I l have loved the empty chair image for ages but money is a problem.

Jo, I just love this piece. So many times with the Halloween creations we tend to go for the most obvious choices as far as images, stamps and so on. This is awesome, I love the chair, the stars and the different materials that give it all the texture. As usual, a wonderful piece of artwork.

Wendy Gale said...

Not you aswell Jo......another little halloween freak in my DT team lol I love your piece and the colours are just perfect. And thank you for what you did in Craft Stamper, I have my copies in store already and so have seen the great artwork... I particularly liked your colour scheme.
