Happy Halloween! {LATE!}

SO... as I mentioned, I am posting some late projects that I was able to squeak out before Halloween, so bear with me and all the pictures! I figured it was better to do it all in one post rather than to make many.  

This first card, I was trying to mimic Michelle's (Zindorf) style of a brayered background of the night sky with the moon and witch.  As you can see, I have a ways to go, but I have to say that it really looks better irl.   I brayered and sponged the moon which I then masked and brayered the sky using many different colors.  I have found I do much better with sponging in my backgrounds rather than brayering, but I will keep trying.  I then used the cauldron from MFT's set of Totally Witchin' and the witch from Inkadinkado's Halloween set.   I used my white gel pen to highlight some stars and used a silver glitter pen over the stars and bubbles in the steam.  For the main card, I used a shimmery rust orange which I love!  It just gives it that extra sparkle.

Materials used: Shimmery orange cs, white, brayer, MFT, Inkadinkado, white gel pen, silver glitter pen, NON, NQN, Pirouette Pink, Baja Breeze, bashful blue, creamy caramel, basic black, really rust, pumpkin pie

This was a wooden treat bag I found at Hobby Lobby which I painted and stamped with PTI's set of Spooky Treats II.  I then placed a bag of M&M's and stamped on the tissue paper to make my own.  I felt it needed some color,  so I sponged in a little purple, added a purple ribbon and then cut the top of the tissue paper with one of my decorative scissors.

Materials Used: Wooden bag, acrylic paint, PTI Spooky sweets, tissue paper, Momento ink, perfect plum, ribbon

I found this little witches hat that is made for doll making, but I thought it would be a fun treat to stuff a small bag of candy on the inside and give.  I only added ribbon and little sentiment.  I think it could have used a little more...
