Alcohol Marker, Black Soot, Close To My Heart, Distress Inks, Distress Stains, Doodlebug Designs, Ripe Persimmon, Stampin' UP!, Tim Holtz
Yikes! It is almost Halloween and if you are like me you have a lot of little details to catch up on. I had a party I attended over the weekend and I brought homemade Salted Caramel Cupcakes with cutesy Halloween picks in them and of course a hostess gift. I chose a Bloody Mary mix 😉 one with a scary name to boot!
The Bloody Mary bottle tag was first stenciled with Fired Brick Distress Stain and Tim Holtz Speckles stencil that was gifted to me by one of my scrappy friends. 🙂 Thanks T! Next I sponged a small area in the center with Ripe Persimmons Distress Ink so the Martini glass would pop. The Bring On The Boos stamp is from the Holiday Spirits stamp set by Stampin’ UP! I masked it off and stamped the sentiment directly on the “spattered” background and stamped the martini (with the eyeball olive) separately, colored it with alcohol markers and fussy cut it out, adhering it with foam tape.
The cupcake picks were stamped using Close To My Heart Frightfully Fun stamp set. As you can see, I go for cutesy over scary…but I could not resist a little gore for the hostess gift. The circles for the back base of the picks were punched out using Doodlebug’s latest Halloween collection October 31st. Now how is that for cute?!
I had SO MUCH fun coloring these adorable little characters. I used my alcohol markers and distressed the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.
