Halloween at Fashionable Stamping

Hi folks, and a very warm welcome to my new followers, lovely to see you.

Its time for another new challenge at Fashionable Stamping, and this time we would like to see Halloween or Halloween colours on your project.  We are as usual sponsored by Marina of Cottage Crafts, and the winner will receive a gift cert to spend in their shop.

I chose to go with  colours and used Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, Weathered Wood and Dusty Concord on my tag. My moon was also stamped with Weathered wood.  The image is from Kanban's Jasper Steampunk set and coloured with Promarkers.  The grasses are from IndigoBlu Poppy Meadow.  I did stamp the Dress Stand, but unfortunately it was 'lost' in the grasses, so a quick improvise with the base of the TH Dress Form (makes her look like she's got thick legs -and a bit off centre in the photo, but I've just checked -  and they do line up on the tag)  Sentiment and birds are Tim Holtz.
My teamies have made some fabulous Halloween projects, so please do pop over to FSC and check them out.

I am entering this at:
  Challenge up your Life - Autumn/Halloween
  Stampin for the Weekend - Something Spooky
  Craftymess - Halloween
  Heck of a Challenge - Spooktacular
  Live & Love Crafts - Autumn/Halloween

Thats it for now, need to get organised.   DD is coming for lunch and then, hopefully a final decision on Wedding stationery,  I think I have made too many samples - too much choice!
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.

Hi Avril,
What a fabulous tag, love the colours and the bachground looks great.
Love this Kanban stamp. It's sitting in the bottom of my 'New and waiting to be Used' box (it's been in there a while!) You've inspired me to dig it out this week and have a play.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend. xx

Now I really like your take on Halloween a lot Avril. Love the manequin image - it's one of my favs - and you have added the perfect colours, background and sentiment to make a stunning tag here. Puts a new slant on this challenge for me as I'm not a skeleton person normally. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, Buttons x

Hi Avril, gorgeous tag as ever. Love those poppies and the mannequin is fab. The hat is super touch. Happily I am expecting a wild honey inkpad in post 2moro - seeing it on your tag makes me think a good purchase. Happy decision making! Nicola x
