The Greeting Farm 'trick or Treat' Blog Hop

Welcome to the Halloween release from The Greeting Farm!!!!

For added FUN we thought we would have a little trick or treat hop!



I thought I would make a Halloween picture frame, I wanted something quite ornate to hold these adorable halloween trinkets! The frame is made from grey board, die cut and I've painted with black paint dabber! All the dimensional foliage has been cut from black cardstock! I then glued the pieces in place omitting the shrinkies and sprayed a very generous amount of glimmer  mist so it sparkles! I have printed the digi's onto inkjet shrink plastic, (my printer is still playing up with the black ink, although you can hardly notice!) They're coloured with copics markers and shrunk with heat tool, I used some clear adhesive foam to attach them!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Graphic 45: Halloween in Wonderland; grey board; Inkjet shrink plastic;
Stamps: The Greeting Farm: Halloween ~ witch; pumpkin; shedevil; skeleton; bride;
Ink: printer; Copic: markers*; Ranger: distress inks: vintage photo;
Dies: loads of them LOL ~ Sizzix: frame; flower 3D; branches & leaves; elegant flourish; spooky house;
Other: Tattered Angels: glimmer mist; Paint Dabber: pitch black; Viva decor: pearl pen; black & clear 3D adhesive foam;


I hope you enjoy the hop and of course I need to mention...
that two of you could win a Halloween digi of choice,
and there's one GRAND prize winner who gets all 5 new Halloween digi's!!!!
