We’re fast approaching the end of the month and that means all those Hallowe’en creations are appearing and we at Lexi’s Creations have chosen that as our theme this time.
We are sponsored by the wonderful Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher for her online store, which is stuffed full of oodles of goodies, and what’s even better, no postage over £9!
For my Hallowe’en project I decided to make a bag for my Daughter’s gorgeous Goddaughter the lovely LillyBee who is also my surrogate Granddaughter. I don’t think little Lilly is old enough to go trick or treating yet so she will be getting the little gift bag full of treats, some naughty (sweeties) and some nice (fruit).
A LOT of masking went on with this card. Firstly the So Spooky Tilda and the pumpkin, which I coloured in with my prismas as I had been having a clear out and my alcohol pens were all tucked away out of reach, and then I inked all around her. Have to say don’t get those prismas out often enough. I had forgotten how much I love colouring with them. So many colour mediums, so little time and only one pair of hands!
When I had finished I cut it out with a spellie die, but it looked sort of empty and I decided I needed something more behind her to balance the image so out came my Elusive Image Hallowe’en stamps and i masked Tilda off and stamped the tree it looks as if it’s in the background. By that time, unfortunately I had inked all round the Tilda/pumpkin image and there was no place for the moon. So I just stamped the moon a second time and cut it out and stuck it over the purple one that was already there. I was quite pleased how it turned out as I obviously had to do a degree of guesswork where Tilda’s hat was sitting over it!
The image was sitting in the centre of a large diecut originally, but there was just enough space around to get it all cut into a smaller size without chopping off any image.
The background paper was a plain black and white freebie from Bearly Mine Designs, thank you Donna! I printed it onto 160 gsm paper and inked over it to match the colours, I hope, used in the image.
The cute little besom has been in my stash for years. I think I got it at HobbyCraft!
The cats, spooky tree and pumpkin embellishments were stamped onto shrink plastic, and then coloured, cut and shrunk.
I hope Lilly will enjoy her gift.
