3 makes in Neon Green and Black

Another quick-ish post because I am still poorly and I'm struggling with the PC screen. I made 3 items for the Colour Create challenge - and I'm so pleased that I made them last week, otherwise I would have had nothing to post today.

The wonderfully talented Jo has chosen the colours and theme this week.

The first makes are in the bottom photo. They look lovely but I felt they were a little too plain. So, when I saw all the fab Halloween makes some of my fellow DT colleagues made, I just had to get out this Kerry Jo image. I've also drawn lots of spiders in the swirls and stickled the leaves in the swirls too.

Here is the picture Jo gave us for inspiration:The colours are Neon Green and Black. The optional extras are leaves and a charm.

The picture made me think of the 20's with that lovely cocktail. So the first items I made are a mix of Art deco shapes and Art Nouveau stamps. I do like to mix it up a bit! The template for the bag is a papertrey ink template - and can be purchased here.

We're sponsored by Whiff of Joy stamps this week. Please pop over to the blog to see the fantastic and amazing creations that the rest of the DT have made - they are awesome.

Thanks for looking
Sharon xx

Just gorgeous Sharon, I really can't say which I like best - I like them both for different reasons. The bag & card for it's elegant simplicity and the witchy one for it's intricate & fabulous details.
Hope you're soon feeling better.

These are fantastic. I love that witch so I went looking for it, and was so disappointed as it was sold out. I'll have to keep checking as there are some fab stamps on the sheet. Those colours look so effective together.
Just discovered your fantastic blog, so will be back.
Hope you soon feel better.
