Happy Witching

Here is a candy holder that I have decorated for Halloween.  It's been a nightmare to take a photo of what with the mirri card and sparkly sweet wrappers!!

For my candy holder I have used a Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Chihuahua Lover".  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens.  For the background I have coloured in with a blue Graph'it and then did dots with various blues, greys, blender pen and also my white Graph'it pen.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint distress ink.
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs "Halloween Hauntings" (until the 31 October 2014 Halloween Hauntings and Halloween Fantasy are 50% off).  I have used an orange check paper and an orange spider web paper which I have cut up and inked around with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink.

The candy holder I received from a friend.  I have stamped it all over - inside and out - with a Sheena Douglass crackle stamp and a bat stamp from Visible Image.  I have then inked around all the edges with Black Soot distress ink.

I have finished the candy holder off with some black organza ribbon from Buckwell Craft Supplies, jump rings, bat and spider charms, various fibres, sentiment off the computer, buttons and a gorgeous bat ribbon bow (I recently won a challenge that was sponsored by Crafty Ribbons.  I'd previously had a spider's web ribbon from them but had to have some more of that as well as this fantastic bat ribbon).
