BBTB2 Trick or Treat

Hi, Happy Monday! We are waking up to quite a storm here on the south coast of Britain!
Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and this week I am hosting the challenge, Halloween.
I made a luminaire with the Tom Holtz luminary die and decorated it with cricut cuts.
I used a combination of Create a Friend characters at 2"

The tree is Happy Hauntings at 2"
The DP is by MME - Mischievous.
Glossy accents and flower soft with a hot glue cobweb for texture.
I embossed the acetate windows, they just don't show so well in the piccies.

I added cauldrons and fence to the tealight.
The sentiment is from My Creative Time.

Check out the DT's amazing inspiration and come and join in the fun.

Pumpkin Canvas

Hi, how are you doing? Hope you had a good weekend.
Today my talented DT sister, Caroline, has asked us to use pumpkins in our challenge over at BBTB2.
I decided to make some home d├ęcor.

My canvas is 6 x 4.
I painted it with weathered wood and willow paints and added some walnut stain and spun sugar  distress ink and stencils.
My cuts were at 8" from Artbooking with the Autumn title at 5.25".

I added heirloom gold to my pumpkin.
Autumn Bronze Gilding Wax, you can click here to see my video tutorial.
Lancashire Rose Gilding Flakes, you can click here for my video tutorial.
I inked and scrunched my cuts.
Added lots of foam pads and silicone glue for dimension.

I loved how this turned out!

I know, picture heavy but they just don't do it justice!
Come and join us and see the wonderful inspiration the DT ladies have for you.
Thanks for stopping by.
