Halloween Spoils

It is time again for another challenge over at 613 Avenue Create!  
This week there is NO optional twist to our Anything Goes theme - 
It's All Anything Goes!

This week, I was able to work with one of our sponsors, Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, and some wonderful digital papers from her Trick or Treat kit.  I used both the Bat paper and Dot paper from the Patterned Paper Set 1 in my creations this week.

I chose to make a few more "goody" containers for Halloween.  Between all of my grands and the littles in my new neighborhood, I'm going to need a bunch of these this year! 

I used a small "Paint bucket" container that I got at work, and put a strip of the bat paper on the inside.  I made a tag from some black card stock, mirror paper, and the dot paper.  My sentiment actually came from a larger stamp (from the dollar bin at Michael's), which I masked off, and was embossed with black embossing powder onto vellum.  I added a few "Halloween" colored gemstones (I believe I picked them up at Hobby Lobby last year) to the tag then popped it up on some dimensionals.    A few pieces of dotted Offray ribbon were tied on the handle as well.

I had to finish the top and bottom with circles cut from the dot paper.  I also added this super cute pumpkin 3D sticker that I picked up at Walmart last year.

For the treat bag, I printed the digital papers in a bit larger size, and created a rosette.  I edged all of my papers with Distress Ink, and embossed a sentiment from another dollar bin stamp with gold sparkle embossing powder.  

I edged the circle of paper with black pearls,  and also used my WoS pen to coat a few of the bats on the paper with some sparkle.   I wrapped the bag with some wide black satin ribbon from my stash and attached the rosette.  

I had a ton of fun making these!  Please be sure to check out the wonderful inspiration from my teamies over at 613 Avenue Create, and join our Anything Goes challenge this week!
