It's that time of the month, folks! Another Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party. I'm excited about this one simply because I now have an excuse to go crazy over Halloween and not fret over Christmas! For my project I went back to an earlier (Christmas) project of mine called My Christmas Village. I referred to Mynnette's cascading card tutorial over at Technique Tuesday and gave it a spooky twist with the colours of the blog party.
I had so much fun with this project and there are so many cute elements thanks to some awesome Spellbinder dies (l-o-v-e- them!). Enough rambling, here's my project:
|The patterned papers are by Fancy Pants "Oct 31st" 6x6 pad. Unlike my Christmas project, I did not cram all kinds of everything into this one.|
|A couple of Jack-o-Lanterns, a left boot and a pointy hat - that's it! And I call it being CAS!|
|Here's my favorite bit - a witch on a broomstick flying against a full moon. I popped her up on some foam tape.|
I lined the sides with some grey CS and stamped the fence, birds and bats from the Hocus Pocus and Gracie at Halloween set.
