Hello friends and visitors! This is my first of two Halloween posts today; you can see my spooky journal HERE. Today marks the start of a new Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land. I hope you'll stop by the blog to see the wonderful inspiration by my talented teamies! But while you're here, take a look at my Halloween party favor. Wouldn't this be fun to have at each table setting with a little treat in it? Or perhaps this could be used as a fun way to deliver a party invitation.
I had so much fun using my newest Halloween dies and a few of my old ones. To start, I assembled the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Coffin Box die, using just the bottom. Before making my cuts I prepared some chipboard from my cat's canned food box by adding a design with a stencil and modeling cream. Once this dried, I colored it with Color Bursts in Burnt Umber and Lamp Black. These just scream Halloween spookiness! The box is very easy to assemble, but I recommend allowing the chipboard to dry before gluing. Perhaps I speak from experience.
My two new dies are the skull and crossbones from Mini Bat and Skull Set and 'Boo' from Vintage Spirits, both made by Sizzix. Now those hands are CREEPY, and they are cut from shrink plastic using Skeleton Hand by Memory Box. Check out these other skeletons Scrapy Land has in stock! In fact, if you love Halloween like me, you'll want to look over all the Halloween dies Scrapy Land sells in the shop.
I have a question...does anyone have tips on how to take good photos of a 3 dimensional object???
I couldn't decide whether to snap him on black or white, indoors or out. and those big slimy hands kept getting in the way!
But then I had some fun with the light, and couldn't resist showing just how eerie this could look.
Sweet and simple! I hope you're inspired to get out those dies and join the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land. Everyone who plays along and follows the guidelines is in the running for a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land. The team will also choose a winner and their favorites from the gallery. The winner also receives a $10 gift certificate to the shop! I hope you'll play along!
