Gingersnaps #75 - Colour Challenge

 
Scroll down for WOYWW

My pieces for Gingersnaps Creations Challenges are a bit like buses in the UK ....i.e. you wait ages for one and then lots of them turn up at the same time!  Have a wander over and have a look at the fantastic very appropriate colour challenge happening at the moment (and you can take your time because you have a whole month to play); Eggplant (or Aubergine if in the UK), Avocado and Pumpkin!  Yes HALLOWEEN colours.....now my friends will know I just do not get HALLOWEEN (sorry! please dont shout at me).

Anyway back to the challenge; what on earth was I going to do to as now I had Halloween stuck in my head!  Last year my lovely (and serene) crafting friend, Christine C made a Halloween card which I could not help to admire, the little girl witch was so cute!  I could live with this so I kindly borrowed Christine's stamps. Thank you so much Christine!
I have used Distress Inks and little bits of Graphic 45 paper, the new Alice Halloween papers.  The giant peg (inspiration from a Sue Roddis of Jabberwocky article in an old Craft Stamper) was covered in old text book, gessoed, covered with the same Distress Inks and then over stamped.  I then cut down three brads to co-ordinate with the smaller brads on the ATCs and affixed to the front of the peg.  The peg was courtesy of my Secret Santa last year at the Cubby Hole's Christmas Party - so thank you whoever you are! 


I have just realised that this post is full of thank you's; loan of stamps, inspiration and gift!
Thanks for taking the time to look and hopefully leaving a comment!  Have a stroll over to Gingersnaps - there are always four challenges running each month and there is some great work to see.

Hello to WOYWW!  Hope you stayed with me.  I have been AWOL for a couple of weeks and I have missed have a nose, if you are not sure what I am talking about pop along to Julia's What's on your Workdesk Wednesday where a lot of the crafting community open up their doors to show a peek inside their (mostly) untidy lifes.  As you can see I am no exception.  For the tidy ones of you there is always a few tidy spaces - this is something I dream of and aspire to lol :) Excuse my photo - at 5.30am this morning the light in my dining room is not particularly great (PS....I have to get up this early to tidy up from the night before hehe - no seriously I am a morning person).

It's always fun to open a cupboard and get a lovely surprise. Nicely done and a lot of interesting "stuff" in it, too! That is a great stamp set, too. I think you "got" Halloween this year! Sorry I'm late getting here. Still moving very slowly (15 this week).

I love how you display your fabulous ATCs, Suzanne!

Lovin' your color combos of eggplant, avocado and pumpkin - what a lovely way of explaining colors and since I love all of them it is making me hungry! Your cupboards look pretty great actually - thanks for the peek!
