Crafting for all Seasons #12 Halloween

Loved seeing all your fall flowers and pumpkins last time but a new challenge starts today at CFAS and we'd like to see your Halloween projects or for those who don't do Halloween use Halloween colours. We're being sponsored by Pink Cat Studio and Just Some Lines. I've used an image I created in the new Digi Stamp Designer at Pink Cat Studio to make a hanging decoration.

The image has been coloured with promarkers and cut out and mounted 3d to the decoration. The backing paper is a freebie from Jak Heath and has been cut with a nestie circle and mounted onto scalloped nestie mats. Decoration is finished with a black cat from Kameo Cards, black ribbon for hanging, a green bow, button, skull and crossbones from Beccy's Place, sentiment from The Crafty Nomad, a small bow and pearls all coloured with promarkers.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the design team's projects, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
