InStyle Stamps: Inspiration Challenge

Hi All,

Welcome to the first Inspiration challenge with the InStyle Stamps blog!  This challenge will be replacing the Over The Hump Day Blog Candy Giveaway that we did every month.  I think you'll agree that the new name is much easier to say!
As you know, July is the month for holiday projects, and for this challenge, our theme was Hallowe'en!  This is such a fun holiday, but it's hard sometimes to imagine why you would give someone a Hallowe'en card.  For my project, I decided to make a bookmark instead.  I read a lot, as you can probably tell.

Here she is:

My bookmark base is some shiny green DSP from SU's Rockabilly pack, and I cut that out with my Blossom Nestabilities.  I also cut out a smaller black piece from the same DSP pack and adhered that.  I took a piece of Kraft CS, and punched the egde with a Martha Stewart fence punch, and then sewed it onto the base with my Janome Sew Mini. 

I printed Witchy Chloe from ISS onto PTI White CS, coloured her in with Copics, and cut out the panel with Curved Rectangle Nesties.  I printed her a second time so that I could colour her pants and the broom to cut them out and layer them on with Dimensionals.  I also added a bunch of bats in the background with a black pencil crayon - makes it a little spookier. 

Make sure you stop by the ISS blog to see what the whole DT have been up to, and to enter your own Hallowe'en creation for a chance to win a FABULOUS prize!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
