Trick or Treat Bag: Day 15 of 31 Days

Hello! It's Wednesday, so I have a new Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge to share with you. The theme this week is Halloween, perfect for the 15th day of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. We are sponsored by QKR Stampede.

I used the Trick or Treat Bag, and I colored it with watercolor markers. I then embossed the "sweet" candy corns with an embossing folder on Core'dinations cardstock and sanded it down a bit to highlight the candy.

Super quick! I needed a quickie today...I thought for sure that this year, since both of my kidlings are in school full time, that I would have plenty of time to myself, but boy was I wrong. Anywho, be sure to stop by the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!

I do love that candy corn background. The sandable Core'dinations are a great product.

Wonderful coloring.
I was hearing on the tv news this morning that adult coloring has therapeutic benefits.
