Hi everyone! The theme for Gauche Alchemy’s October Challenge involved the moon. Well, it being the month of October, I just couldn’t resist. I HAD to create a couple of moon-themed Halloween projects. Being an October birthday girl, it’s in my blood. Bwahahahahaha!
For Moon Cat, I started with a black ATC and stamped my images in white ink. I first stamped the stars and the moon (embossing the moon) and then masked over them and stamped the wording. Add a fence from UmWowStudios, a black cat from Retro Cafe Art Gallery, and a pumpkin from Unique Laser Designs and I have a cute little Halloween ATC.
For my Spooky Ghost tag, I once again started with a black base. I used a template to draw my big moon and then some white acrylic paint to color it in. The sayings are stenciled in white ink (from Retro Cafe Art Gallery) and I bordered two sides of the tag with some Halloween themed washi tape. Next I took a bat, tree and several ghosts (from Unique Laser Designs), painted them appropriately, then applied them to my tag. A cute little owl charm with red Stickles eyes sits in the branch of the tree. The jack-o-lanterns along the left side of my stash were some buttons I found hanging out in my stash.
While I went the Halloween route with my project, you don’t have to. Let the moon, stars, lovers, and words guide you to the perfect project. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
