Boo to You!

It's time for another challenge at the Challenge by AR Blog, your hostess for this challenge is Lisa E., and she is challenging you to use any template and create something with a Fall or Halloween Theme.  This two week challenge is being sponsored by MyGraphico.

I created two Halloween Projects using templates from Creations by AR.  This first project features the Single Test Tube Holder.  I can't thank Adela enough for turning my pattern into a Cut File and PDC, it sure makes creating these with the eCraft a breeze!  The Tag and Papers are from the Spooktacular Collection at MyGraphico, printed on White card stock, then sponged with Gathered Twig Distress Ink.

For this particular holder, I used an already filled Test Tube found in the Wilton Baking Section at Michaels.  For other Test Tube projects I've created, I've used the EK Success Brand ones.

Card Stock - Orange, Black, Vanilla

Ink - Distress Ink Gathered Twigs
Other - Wilton Test Tube, Ink Blending Tool, Single Test Tube Template from Creations by AR, Black Grosgrain, Spooktacular Collection by MyGraphico, Printer

This next Halloween project features the Hanging Basket Template, this template with cut from pattern paper using the eCraft.  For the handle, I stretched out a piece of Bind It All Wire, added Eyelets to the side of the basket and secured the wire in place.

I created a Rosette from a 1-1/2" x 10-1/4" piece of pattern paper, scoring every 1/4" with the Scor-Pal, added the image from the Artistic Outpost Halloween Treats plate along with some Black Tulle.  I added a little Witches Hat Charm that I created with the eCraft to the Black Hemp.

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Halloween Treats
Card Stock - Black, Orange, Thin Chipboard

Other - eCraft, Pattern Paper, Hemp, Acrylic Paint, BIA Wire, Eyelets, Jump Ring, Distress Rock Candy Crackle Paint, Tulle, Hemp, Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, Witches Hat from eCraft Central, Basket Template from Creations by AR
