Treats in acetate

Instead of a card, I thought I'd make a little treat bag in acetate for today's Pixie Cottage DT item. These are so sweet and perfect for little treats at halloween. The challenge at the Pixie Cottage this week is a Sketch and/or Something Sweet.
My little acetate bag was made using the 2-5-7-9 bag instructions over at splitcoast stampers; I just thought it would suit an acetate bag so I tried it out. It really shows the rosy apple trick or treat sweets up. For the image I used the barrel of apples from the apple bench stamp and just shaded it in pencil for a change. I love to show that you don't always have to use the full stamp when making a creation, and it doesn't always have to be coloured either.

I'm entering this into:

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

So cute! I agree! Sometimes images look their best when they are not colored in. It really accents the artistry. Love your creation!
