WMS August Preview Day 2 - Halloween Candy

Welcome to another day of WMS previews! Make sure to check Claire's blog for some fabulous eye candy and also be sure to check out the following ladies: Anya, Bonnie, Jennifer, JuliaLynn, and Mona (our fabulous new DT member)!

Can I just say that I LOVE Halloween? Growing up, we never really did much and actually any candy I got from trick or treating was confiscated. Actually, maybe that's why I love it so much now as an adult. Have you noticed that things you weren't allowed as a kid, you absolutely love now? Probably explains my unexplained love of pizza rolls...

Ok, enough babbling, let's get started!

The best part about Halloween? The ability to eat candy and give others candy! This new Waltzingmouse set, Midnight Feast, is absolutely perfect for packaging some fun Halloween goodies! I think people will be seeing lots of fun Halloween packages from me this year! ;-)

Card Details:

The images in Midnight Feast are absolutely fabulous and there's a fun background building star border! So fun! The stars are stamped and then embossed with a holographic embossing powder -- so it is a little sparkly in real life.  I colored the lovely witch with my copics. I added a little shading as well to give her some interest. I did run my glitter pen over her dress to give it a little more sparkle. :)

Candy Wrapper Details:

Yum! I wrapped a Hershey's chocolate bar with some patterned paper. To add a little visual interest, I wrapped the orange paper  (with the star bg stamped in VersaMark) at a diagonal. When I wrap any candy package, I normally place the paper over the object to wrap, draw marking lines in pencil and then scor. This way I can just make any wrapper fit when I need it (and I'm too lazy to measure the object). The toughest part was actually getting the ribbon to stay at a diagonal as well.

I love my clear glaze pen and I ran it over the bats for some fun raised texture. I love the glaze pen for smaller objects. :) So fun!

Remember, there's lots of goodies from Anya, Bonnie, Claire, Jennifer, JuliaLynn, and Mona (our fabulous new DT member)!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
