Halloween Boo Hop - Cause we can do it too!

Morning/Afternoon/Evening all - well this has been a long time coming and its finally here - Now as you know there are a number of us around blogland that LOVE Simply B Stamps - but here in the UK Halloween is not something many people get into - so we have decided to do a special hop for the one and only Betty to show her that over here we are trying!!! 

So welcome to the hop! 

So glad your here!! Now if you have come from 
Kelly your on the right tracks - if not you need to pop back to Corinne's blog and start from the beginning!!



This is my first time of participating in a Blog Hop and have to say when I was asked if I would like to join in I couldn't resist and partly because I Love Love Love Betty's Digi Stamps but also because it gave me the opportunity to purchase some more of her gorgeous Digies :)

So here are my creations for the Hop:
First up is my attempt at a plate using Witchy Boo and the Bats from Vertiy Vamp which I coloured with Promarkers -

The hat and Clothes: Orchid, Amethyst, Purple and Lime Green.
Tights, Belt and Bow: Lime Green and Canary.
Hair: Pumpking, Bright Orange and Gold.
Skin: Dusky Pink, Blush and Ivory.

The Cats and Bats: Black, cool Grey 5, Cool Grey 4, then the ears Carmine and Baby Pink (I think).

I cut the image and stuck to the plate with Pritt Stick and then Mod Podged over Twice. Trudie over on the Simply B Stamps Fan Group did a fantastic tutorial which I just had to have a go at so here is my plate in all its glory.



I didn't think it turned out to well but my hubby said the brush strokes of Mod Podge gave more effect of Witchy Boo flying :)

Next up is My Trick or Treat Wall Hanging which I have to admit was a pretty simple put together. I found the already Orange Glittered sign at the Pound Shop.


and then gathered together all the Halloween Coloured Ribbons I had in my stash and tied them in various places. I also found some Glittery Bats amd stars stickers in the Pound shop so used them to fill some more of the gaps.


The hardest part of all this was the colouring as each stamp takes me on average about couple of hours but due to a Torn Cartilage in my Wrist which happens to be my writing hand they took a bit longer.

I decided to colour in: Witchy Wednesday:






Betty Batty:


Punkin Carving Alix:

and Mummy London:


Last of all I added a creepy cool Black Spider also from Pound Land:
Well that's it from me, Thank you for stopping by, feel free to post a comment I love reading them :) and hope you have a Spooktacular Halloween. Now your next Hop is over to the lovely Anda.
