541 Entries, 2 Happy Winners and 1 New challenge!

Hello all and welcome to my crafty blog.

Wow! Craftymess Challenge Blog hit the jackpot with our last challenge. 541 entries was the total on the final day.  Phew! It was hard work but so worth it.  We reached a new audience and gained new followers and fans from far and wide.  We are a little weary but delighted at this fantastic response.  Thank you to all who have supported us in our  'Anything Goes' challenge.

And now it is time for the new challenge starting today at Craftymess Challenge Blog and the topical theme is 'Haloween'. This is the chosen theme from teamie Tracey.

The cute digi  images  were supplied by our sponsor for this challenge and I chose to make some belly-bands for chococlate bars as Trick or Treat sweets to hand out on Haloween.

Our Sponsor for this challenge is Robyn's Fetish Digi Stamps & More...

As the  Robins Fetish images were digital and I needed to make quite a few, I decided to stay with the 'digital' process and use photoshop to add colour to the images. I chose colours that are normally associated with the ghoulish time of year and used the 'paint-pot' icon in photoshop to drop the colour into the Robins Fetish  images.  The best fun was the Mummy, as I got to work through perhaps, 50 shades of gray :-$. Once I was happy with the colouring, I cut the shapes out leaving a thin white border.

The bands were made using some black cardstock with a strip of orange cardstock with a fancy punched border. I added a strip of DP with a Haloween motif to finish the bands and then popped up the little Haloween monsters on some demensional adhesive.

Make a visit to the  Craftymess Challenge Blog  to see the wonderful DT project ranging from cards to banners and goodie-bags. Great inspiration for your Haloween decorations.
