Spooky goings on…..

City Crafter Challenge Blog is hosting a challenge this week to use polka dots in your project – love those polka dots and this site for the unique challenges. I haven’t been able to play lately, but was so happy to see my new Halloween project fit into their challenge.

Another decorative item ~ this time with a vintage image of a witch and her cauldron ~ love these old vintage black and white images. I recently came across a great shop on Etsy called Glitter Dust Designs. Tara is the designer and makes some really great chipboard dies ~ the prices are good, the cost of shipping is very reasonable, the selection amazing and the attention to detail is right up my alley ~ just look at that tree!

I’ve painted, glittered, layered on the journaling card from Prima found at Scrapbook.com, the chipboard tree mentioned above, a chipboard owl I drew out also on chipboard ~ cut out and glittered, rhinestone strip, decorative brads, crochet trim, tissue garland found also on Etsy at Caramelo’s, some black tulle I gathered then made into fringe, and lastly tied with my own crinkled black seam binding. This one is a favorite for me ~ I love the color combination of black and crème with just a touch of the dusty orange. Had I known I was going to take part in this challenge I would have photographed the back as well – it’s all crème polka dots on a distressed black background.

Also have a couple more single pennant banners ~ both with polka dots to share…

Gorgeous as always! I love that picture of the witch, the image itself is great, but what you have added makes it even more so. I will have to check out that Etsy shop, thanks for the info!
