Inky Impressions- Trick Or Treat

It's team A's turn to do the challenge over at the Inky Impressions challenge blog this week and the challenge is "Trick Or Treat".

I wasn't quite sure which stamp I was going to use for this challenge as I don't have any Inky Impressions Halloween stamps, so I just got out my Halloween papers and took it from there.

I used some Bo Bunny Halloween papers again.....sorry but it's the only Halloween ones I have lol and some purple coredinations cardstock for the matting.
I decided that I would use a boy image this time and chose Mischievous Christopher because he has a frog and I think frogs are kind of Halloweeny (is that even a word?? lol).
This stamp does have some water and grass around the bottom of the image but I just cut out Christopher and left that bit out.

 I coloured him with my usual Promarkers.....just noticed that I forgot to cut some little bits of white out, oh well it's done now.

The ribbon stuff was originally white but I just coloured it with an orange promarker, I like the way it turned out because it's shimmery once coloured,

And the fantastic bat is from Little Snippets. The Halloween Lace Bats come in a pack of 5 with 2 large and 3 medium for $4.
I used one of the medium sized bats, and I'm afraid that this photos do not do it justice because they are so nice. If you love Halloween (like I do :)) these are great to add that special something to your Halloween projects, and of course they can be used on anything, not just papercrafts.

If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you will know that I use embellishments from Little Snippets on a lot of  my cards and crafty projects, and I have had loads of comments from crafters and non crafters about them. They make your cards/projects stand out from the rest, especially when you see them in real life.
I know I say this all the time but I don't tend to go on about products that I don't like, so when I say that I really like something, I am being honest and I do genuinely think they are great :)
I would love to see how other people use them, other than on cards.......maybe we could have a fun competition to see how much things these embellies can be used for??
Ok I will have a think about that one, but in the meantime, let me know any ideas you have for using these.
You can check out all the different embroidered and crotchet embellishments in the Little Snippets Etsy store.
Oh and before I forget, there is also some owls and black and orange flowers in the store just now, perfect for Halloween. You can see them all here
