Day 5
"Happy Halloween"
ATCs by Val
 
Today is the finale of our "Something Wicked This Way Comes" Half-o-Ween Blog Hop and LeighSBDesigner Val has her last 2 magical Halloween ATCs to inspire you as well as a look at what she's doing with her wicked awesome ATCs!
 


To make her SPOOKtacular ATCs Val started out with 2 printed sheets from my Black Snowflakes Grunge Decorative Digi Papers in Ruby Red and Azure.  She then decorated the Ruby Red ATC with the The Stack o' Carved Pumpkins from Quirkleighs CarnEvil Collection and the "Happy Halloween" senti from the A Wicked Compendium of Halloween Sayings set. 
 
 
 For the Azure ATC Val overlaid the 
Laila the Pumpkin Shadow Faerie Digi Stamp and "Fright Night" senti from the A Wicked Compendium of Halloween Sayings set onto the digi paper prior to printing so she could colour the pumpkin and then she added white gel pen details.  She then embellished each ATC with Crystal Stickles glitter for lots of magical sparkle.
 
 
 For the grand finale I can now show you what Val is doing with all her SPOOKtacular Half-o-Ween ATCs!
 
 
 As you can see Val mounted all of her Half-o-Ween ATCs onto black cardstock and punched the left sides with a disc binding punch for displaying on her "Halloween" themed 7 Gypsies ATC holder which she painted black.  What a SPOOKtacular Halloween display, I'm sure we'll see more of this in October too πŸŽƒ

Don't forget to shop the Digi Stamps and Decorative Papers used today in LeighSBDesigns Half-o-Ween Sale which ends tonight at midnight pacific!
  
 
 
Thanks again for helping us celebrate Half-o-Ween again this year!  
I will start tallying on June 2nd, please finish your hopping and commenting in time to be included in the prize drawing!
Happy Hopping!
