...Crazy 4 Halloween (C4C9)

Happy Halloween, everyone! It's Saturday, so that mean that it is time another challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges' blog! Today's challenge is a Very Scary Challenge...create a Halloween card or project. Our fearless leader for this month, Vicki Garrett, has been rockin' out some wonderful dares this month...and this one is no exception!

This is my submission...eerie treats! I filled two clear card boxes with chocolate candies with wrappers that look like eyeballs. I wrapped ribbons around them, then added coordinating tags to each box. These creatures are from Starving Artistamps' set "DoodleFactory Halloween", and were stamped and embossed on Watercolor Paper. I used my Aquapainter and ink pads to color and shade the creepy critters before carefully cutting each one out. I stamped the "happy halloween" sentiment all over a piece Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Cardstock, then cut them into tags using the Spellbinders' Labels Two Nestabilities. The edges were distressed with Sponge Daubers, and Pewter Jumbo Eyelets were attached to the tags using a Crop-a-dile. To complete the devilish duo, I added the images to the tags using Dimensionals. What do you think...spooky enough?
Now let's see what the rest of the design team has in store for you today:

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all back here tomorrow for the TGF November release. Until then...
