Halloween with Plumrose Lane at Sugar Creek Hollow
It is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and we are having a special HALLOWEEN WITH A TWIST challenge this week so make sure you read the challenge post carefully.
We are welcoming Plumrose Lane as a new sponsor this week and for this challenge our sponsor is providing all of you with a wonderful freebie that you must use to make your vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge entry. You will love this because the freebie is a collage sheet of fabulous Halloween images along with an instant card and envelope
To get your freebie, just go to the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog, click on the link and download the freebie (in a .zip file format). Please note that the freebie will only be available for the length of the challenge and after that will be available at the Plumrose Lane Etsy shop.
And as if providing this freebie isn't generous enough, Plumrose Lane is also giving one random winner a $10 gift certificate toward the purchase of any item from the Plumrose Lane Etsy shop. The random winner will also receive a Sugar Creek Hollow winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and that creator will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
I cut some images directly from the collage sheet after I printed it out but because I wanted to resize others I used Photoshop to copy them to a new canvas where I erased the straggly bits that came with them and then saved them as a new picture. For example I did this with the frame and then added the Happy Halloween text. I made the tag by pouncing various distress inks and chalk on some card stock after I cut the shape. I wanted some crinkly ribbon but didn't have the right colour so I took some white organza ribbon, ran it through some Milled Lavender distress ink and then once it was dry, I hit it with my heat gun a few time. CAUTION: Do not get to close with the heat gun or the ribbon will burn very easily.
I am going to enter my card in the following challenges:
