We have a dark month planned for you at Gingersnap Creations during October! For inspiration we are turning to Edgar Alan Poe, the 19th century American writer best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre.
Here is my Ginger art for this week's challenge: GC121 Chestnut Challenge: Horror Stories
Create your own horror story-- something spooky, eerie or just plain terrifying. Have fun with it! Post a link to your art at Gingersnap Creations by October 30. Alpha Stamps is this month's sponsor and is giving away a fantastic prize for this challenge. For all the details and inspiration from more of the Gingersnap Design Team, go HERE.
I used a black tag and a Poe ATC rubber stamp from Red Lead. I sanded the tag and added Ranger Tumbled Glass distress ink. This is one of my three tags for the Red Lead Black Tag Halloween swap.
For the fun part of decorating the tag, I reached into my Bella Creations October Embellishment kit which is also being revealed today. Lacee created a video to showcase the kit. You will find the video and details on how to buy the kit at our Bella Creations site HERE.
My Bella Creations design team assignment was to create something for the Bella Unique challenge. This challenge always gives us a technique to try. This time we created a crepe paper ruffle. I had white crepe paper on hand so I colored it with Spiced Marmalade distress ink and edged it with Black Diamond Stickles. I added a row of puffy satin bat trim to cover the thread.
From the Bella Creations October Embellishment kit, I used the horror card, yellow and black flowers, orange library card, and black ribbon.
