Would You Like to Win a $50 Gift Certificate to Retro Cafe Art Gallery?

I thought so. So, here's the deal. Retro Cafe is currently running a super fun contest!!! It's all about Halloween, folks! And...it's an easy one, too! All you have to do is create a project (up to three entries per person) with a Halloween theme! Yup. That's it! It doesn't even have to have Retro Cafe Art products in it (although, they have a FANTASTIC supply if you need some goodies!)!!! Here are two projects that I created to get you excited and ready for the contest!

First, I have an altered bottle. I glittered the bottle on the inside with black glitter. The skull is cut from the Happy Hallow 1 Collage Sheet and then coated with Diamond Glaze, punched, and I added a red eyelet to string it to the bottle. I added some Martha Stewart Halloween tape around the bottle and finished it off with a label sticker.


I had so much fun with this bottle!!! I love it!


My second piece is an ATC created using one of the Circle Gothic Arch Window ATC frames in Masonite. I used an ATC base as the foundation and layered images from the Happy Hallow 2 Collage Sheet as the background. The text is from a vintage book.

The possessor of evil

I used glass glitter to fill in some of the other areas in the arch and placed a piece of german scrap across the bottom. The top is finished with a bat cutout.


So...now that you have some inspiration you simply MUST go make a super fun Halloween project and enter the contest!!! YOU MUST! LOL! Please? Pretty please? K. Thanks. Bye now.

I'm linking up to the Get Your Craft On Party and the Passionately Artistic Party!
