Heart 2 Heart ~ Sweet Treats

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

Our second challenge for the month is sweet treats. This can be interpreted the way you see fit, some of the things that come to mind for me is candy, cookies, and Halloween. So I decided to go the way of Halloween since you go trick or treating and get candy.

Please remember this when you are designing you project.

Here is the card I designed.

I created my background with Seedless Preserves and Chipped Sapphire Oxide Inks. I then uses Clear, Black, Grape, and Sapphire Shimmer brushes to splatter the background. I cut the oxide inked background with the Stitched Rectangle Thin cuts. I then matted it on Black Ore paper. I used the Halloween Buddies – Joey stamp and thin cuts. I stamped the sentiment with White Pigment ink and then used White Embossing Powder on it. I used my Tri-Blend markers to color and added a bit of Silver Stickles for the buttons.

I have also submitted this card with Double Trouble Challenge #95 ~ Thing 1 says to make a cute Halloween card and I think this fits!

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge.
