c4e recipe challenge #4

This weeks recipe has been posted on the c4e blog, on time this week! lol!!
Hop over HERE to see the fab DT work using the new c4e Halloween digi stamps! stunning work girls!
This weeks recipe is:
1. use the sketch
2. use orange & black
3. use a Halloween image
Here is my card and a little treat bag to go with it!!
The PP are Basic grey Eerie, CS is from the papermill and papermania.
Hand stitching using Aida threads in back stitch.
The image I used is one of the Halloween cupcake's digi stamps, which are available HERE.
Coloured with watercolour paints and then I tried some glossy accents over the top. I couldn't get a good shot to show the accents, not sure it was worth it to be honest. The CS wrinkled and the effect is minimal.
Oh well will just have to keep playing! lol!

The 3 pumpkins is an image from the pumpkin set, printed in 2 different sizes, coloured with watercolours again and glossy accents. The effect on these was better, unfortunately couldn't get a good shot to share.

For the little treat bag, and it really is little! I used an ATC poly bag to hold the sweets. The topper is 2 sizes of labels nesties with an extra layer of white cs between them, folded in half. The image is one of the new 'spots' I am working on. The image has been coloured with watercolour paints and finished with glitter glue.
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to check out this weeks challenge there is another set of Halloween images up for grabs!
take care
