TRICK OR TREAT?

I have been making a Halloween sign to hang in my entryway and it's the best thing I have ever made!  And it was so much fun.  My favorite thing to paper craft is definitely Halloween.  I just love all the all the monsters and creatures.

Here it is!




It was really hard for me to get a good picture because it is so dark and gloomy outside.  But that's kinda fitting don't you think?  I got so close ups before I hung it up though.  








I am so so so so excited about my sign.  Can you tell?  I used an old acrylic circular album I've had for ages for the Trick part and a piece of canvas for the treat part.  The paper is my new G45's Halloween in Wonderland and I fussy cut all the cool images.  All the metal, including the rings to hold it up were originally silver but I inked them with Alcohol inks to change them to copper.  I threaded copper flowers through the rings to cover up the holes at the top.  The letter are popped up with an accordion flower I made.  I also popped up many images, though it hard to tell in the pictures.Many of my flowers were white originally but I used ink and glimmer mist to get them the right color for the sign.  Then I added stickles and rhinestones to the flowers, hat, and keyhole.  Gotta have some bling ;)  The canvas I glimmer misted orange (it's very sparky) and then swiped some Vintage Photo ink over it to give it a grungy look.  

I'm entering my sign in all kinds of challenges.  I can't remember the last time I won a challenge, so I'm increasing my odds LOL!!!!
