Stampendous and May Arts Week

Stampendous and May Arts are teaming up to bring you oodles of inspiration this week! 


To create my Halloween bag, I recycled a store shopping bag. Any shoe lovers recognize the bag? ;) I thought the black stripes on kraft would make the perfect Halloween theme gift bag! 

I sprinkled Aged Black Embossing Enamel on orange cardstock and heated from underneath. Next I splattered some black watercolor and inked the edges with Distress Ink.


The Stampendous Skeleton Poem was stamped in Versamark and embossed with white Embossing Enamel. I sprinkled some Aged Black and Aged Bronze. While the embossing enamel was still warm, I sprinkled on some Stampendous glitter and Color Fragments and heated again.

I added a bit of May Arts Black Netting under an Orange sheer bow. 

Be sure to visit and leave some love at the Design Team blogs to be eligible for a sweet prize from Stampendous and May Arts!

I really like your sprinkle and splatter effects. They don't take away from the skeleton stamp. the black ribbons is a nice touch with the orange one.
