Happy Halloween!  I made treat bags for three special little ghosties and goblins that will come knocking at my door tonight.  What a great time visiting blogland looking for challenges.  I saw a lot of awesome creations along the way from some talented people!

A complete list of supplies is at the bottom of this post.  To start, a Sizzix die was used to cut the bags and a Nestie for the moons.  OCL Spook-tacular and SU July Fourth stamp sets were used for each and the witch bag also uses SU Good Neighbor.  All sides of the bags were embossed with stars using VersaMark and clear EP.  The images were colored with Copic markers.  The bats and ghost are attached with wire and the spider's legs were cut off and replaced with wire.  The bats have Sparkly Fluff on them and the ghost has Crafty Sparkles.  A little Craft White was sponged on the bags before the spider and cat were attached to help them stand out.  The houses and tree are popped up on Dimensionals.  They each use two brads and black twine for closures.

Copic coloring:

Witch:  G20, V95, C1, V09, V06, V04, Y26, Y23, Y 21, 110  Moon:  W2, W1, W0, 0  Bat:  V09, V06, V04, RV32, 110  Houses:  C5, W1, Y11, 110  Tree:  YG63, YG03

Moon:  W2, W1, W0, 0  Ghost:  BG10, 110


Cat:  YR07, YR04, YR02, YG21, RV32, 110  Moon:  W2, W1, W0, 0 Fence:  W2, W1, W0 Bat:  V09, V06, V04, RV32, 110
