ALMOST Halloween Hump Day Blog HOP!!!!

Are you getting ready for the the Bombshell Halloween Blog Hop 2010?!
I LOVE Halloween, one of my fave holidays as it's a chance to dress up and be silly!!
Here we have a Halloween themed meal and decorate the room and ourselves and watch a Halloween episode or two of the Simpsons!!

But I'm really Looking forward to Blog hopping and having you join us on October 27th 2010!

So to get you in the mood for Halloween here's a Halloween/Day of the Dead lamp I made for Kas's Just Halloween Challenge

How to:
I stamped Bombshell stamps onto three pieces of A5 Vellum and coloured it lightly with Copic pens.

I took 3 pieces of black cardstock and cut a section from the section from the centre of each to frame my stamped vellum.

I used a cobweb punch to punch along the top and bottom of each of the three cardstock sections.

I stuck the three sections together to form a triangle and added a triangular base made from black cardstock.

I decorated the lamp with glitter and flowers and used a BATTERY powered tealight to light the lamp.

So remember we start hopping on October 27th starting from our Brand new BOMBSHELL BLOG for fun, inspiration and prizes!!!
You only have to wait until Wednesday and then head on over to.....

Halloween FUN!

This is my first play with one of the fun images from Tiddly Inks Digital stamps.

I made the purple background paper myself by mixing Dusty Concorde Re-inker, water and eyeshadow powder ( I didn't have any Perfect Pearls!!) mixed in a spray bottle a la Tim Holtz stylee!!
 It was messy and FUN PLUS I ended up with fab glimmery purple paper!

VERY excited!!!

Steampunk Garden!

I loved this girl from Kraftin' Kimmie and I thought it would be fun for her to wander through her Steampunk garden, tending her copper roses!
I made the backgrounds myself with spray Inks and stencils- lots of fun!
