Simply Betty Stamps Challenge - On the Eigh Day of Halloween....

My ghoul gave to me...8 cauldrons!!!

I know I'm a little late but I made it on the 8th day!!  =)

I'll be quick in my post so you can move on to your creations for us!!

I chose Simply Betty Emo Betty Halloween as my interior image and Bugaboo stamps 'cauldron' from their Magical Tidbits collection that goes along with their Har Repporter stamps!  RIDICULOUS cuteness abound!!

Anyhoo - I kept all tones in greens, yellows and neutrals.  I wanted the bubbles in the cauldrons to have life to them so I used clear Stickles and Glossy Accents on top of each other.  I then got impatient (shock) and took my heat gun to it.  Gingerly at first but when it started to bubble and harden I kept the heat on and let it do it's thing.

It picked up some of the color, or reflection of the Copic coloring underneath and adds total 3-Dimension to the project.

Which is why I kept the rest of the project very simple.  I made a small gatefold card, using scraps from my desk on either side of the exterior, I mounted the Bugaboo caludron to a slice of ouchless cardboard.  I then adhered one side of the cardboard with runner adhesive and the other has a velcro dot on it so that it stays shut but is easily opened.

Inside I added two side panels for a quick note or sentiment with Betty hangin' out in the middle sayin' hello with her witches brew!!

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!  And I hope you do play along!!!
