Happy Halloween -- featuring Basic Grey and Spellbinders :)

Hi everyone :) 

Today on Frosted Designs blog, we are celebrating Halloween! :) 

I had these paper mache pumpkins that I bought last year at Michael's and wanted to dress them up ...





I painted them, and while they were still wet, I formed a vintage dress pattern around the pumpkins ... once that was dry, I used a Studio Calico mist and sprayed the pumpkin and then spread it out with a paper towel :) 


I also took some Basic Paper "Persimmon" collection and a leaf shaped Spellbinders die and made a lot of leaves :)  Then I inked them and adhered them to the pumpkin :) 


Add in some Basic Grey "Persimmon" collection stickers and here they are ....
















Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
