Just wanted to pop in and share a little Halloween treat bag I designed for Embellish’s Paint Color Trends Challenge. I was totally inspired by Charlene’s Halloween theme choice and went that route too. Thanks, Char for being an inspiring source just when I needed it! These colors are super fun to work with. I have to remind myself at times to relax and just create and it will all come together…well not all because the first card is in the trash.
I stamped the front of the kraft bag from the Plaid Barn with Making Memories black acrylic paint using DeNami Design’s medium polka dot rubber stamp. I really like using rubber stamps when stamping with paint because the impression and clean up just seems a bit easier for me. I really love the inconsistency you get when stamping with paint.
For the focal point, I stamped the webs with soft stone ink on soft stone cardstock. I also stamped the sentiments around the sides and bottom center using true black ink. I matted the stamped cardstock onto true black cardstock. Next, I die cut a 2.5″ Limitless Layers: Circle from kraft cardstock and stamped a decorative component from Spooky Sweets stamp set. To finish it off I added a stamped witch die cut. I love how this stamped piece looks like a real label…just with a few stamps!
I added some green chevron twill tape by May Arts and was all done!
