Halloween Angel Art Challenge blog-hop!!

Finally! Here it is... the Halloween Angel Art Challenge! I decided to create these little Goblin Sweet Pails to give to a choice few on Halloween night to the kids with the best costumes! I'll put candy in the ones I give out, but for today's purposes, I just used marbles to hold up the 'Spooky' pick. I had purchased these little pails from the Target $1 spot a year or two ago and finally used them!!

Goblin Sweet Pails supply list:

Stamps: Glitter Goblins, Fresh Air Favorites

Paper: Bazzill Basics and misc. eggplant & black cardstocks



Inks: Noir & Landscape Palettes

Other: hydra sponge, May Arts ribbon, black crochet thread, natural jute, large silver eyelets, wooden skewers

Using Landscape Palette, I stamped an image from FAF on the upper left & lower right portions of the tag. It looks like a greenish charcoal color in real life due to the base being rusty orange. After punching the scallop, I wadded it up and tore portions for effect... I also did this for the green Bazzill. I then ran my Noir ink pad over it.

The pail had a jack-o-lantern painted on it, so I let the eyes peek out from the behind the creepy green wrapping.

Using Noir, I stamped two 'Spooky' circles on the green, punched them out, and glued a skewer between them.

I used my Crop-A-Dile to set the eyelet through the tag & pail. I then wrapped the crochet thread around several times and tied it off. Finished it all by adding the jute through the eyelet and the ribbon to the Spooky pick.

What do you think?
