Octopode Factory Challenge, Halloween in July

Well it's that time again over at the Octopode Factory to start our new challenge,The theme is Halloween In July, Its also the perfect time to take advantage of Lily's Halloween In July offer to celebrate the release of her new images in the Gloomsville collection, A whole host of new Halloween images.Lily is offering 15% off of all her Halloween images.
The shop can be found HERE
I used the new Gloomsville Witch,, she also comes with her Gothic cat Cesar, I also used the new Gloomsville Pumpkins. All three images were coloured with Copics and have been clear embossed. The pumpkins were printed straight onto the tag and the witch and cat have been fussy cut. The Back ground of the tag has been coloured with Distress inks, I used Shaded lilac, a little Dusty Concord and some Festive berries, As the Pumpkins were clear embossed I could colour the BG straight over the top of them as the embossing acts as a resist.
The Boo has been cut from mount board using the Tim Holtz die and has been embossed with some frantage  powder.
I coloured the ribbon with some purple and yellow Dylusion sprays and added the witches hat charm.A little black soot distress around the edges.
You have two weeks to take part and we would love to see you join us. You do not need to use an Octopode image but your name will get entered twice into the prize pot for some images.x
