The Candy Monster


We have a Spooky & Sweet challenge for you over on the Our Craft Lounge Blog this week!

Make Fall or Halloween Treats

To turn this plain white paper sack into a Halloween Treat Bag, I used two AWESOME stamp sets from Our Craft Lounge - Spooky Borders and Little Boogas.

 
 LOTS of glitter and shimmer! YEAH BABY!


You can see in the closeups the areas that have Spica glitter pens colored on them - purple spots on the monster, shoes, stripes on socks, kids hair and the suckers on the sack. Spica pens give a nice shimmer. On the monsters eyelids and candy in the pumpkin I used glitter. On the sucker and pumpkin I used Stickles. I colored over the eyeballs with a clear glaze pen.

 
You know...this little monster could be used for a birthday card.  Just don't ink up the pumpkin and sucker.  Then you can replace the sucker with a balloon :)
