Halloween ATC

Hi Everyone.

A quick second post for me today. I have really been missing entering some of my favourite challenges and just had to find some time to get a couple of things made this weekend.

This is an ATC made to enter Simon Says Stamp and Show and I will just make it in time with a few hours to spare.


Stamps used are by Stampotique - the banner - and a small set by pinkpaislee. The bats are a free download and cut out and the skull and ribs are skeleton table sprinkles for parties. DIs used are black soot and walnut stain.

I got back from Alexandra Palace about 2 hours ago having met up with Sarah from Wolverhampton and with Neil from Kent. Neil and I are on the Stamp Man design team together. It was great to catch up with you guys again. I know I said there wasn't anything I wanted, but I still came home with card, ribbons, stamps and some gorgeous pastels that the lovely Lin from LB Crafts was demoing. I have already had a try with these on a piece I had already started for Gingersnap Creations challenge this week - I will post it later in the week but the colours are gorgeously bright and translucent, just what I have been looking for to lift the colour ranges I use.

Well I hope you have had a productive day.

Take care and have a good week.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

SPOOKTACULAR ATC Brenda. Good to hear that you enjoyed Ally Pally. Those pastels weren't Pan Pastels were they? If so then I'm dead curious to know what you think of them .........
