Witchy Hall o' Hanging

Hi! This week's BBTB2 was to use a frame from Happy Hauntings (which I don't own) and a digi image from The Stamping Boutique.  The digi images are really fabulous! I chose this adorable witch and created a wall hanging for Halloween. I layered a Halloween printed cardstock over a black and purple striped cardstock. I cut the frame from Reminisce Accents backed with yellow cardstock. Before I glued the frame to the yellow cardstock, I wove and tied silver mylar bag filler strands through the frame.  I colored the image with colored pencils, markers, and gel pens. I added gold Stickles to accent the stars.  I attached the frame and image to the wall hanging with pop dots.  I embellished the frame with gold metal nail head stickers and pop dotted letters to spell "Boo."  Finally, I added orange eyelets to the top corners and threaded polka dotted ribbon through as a hanger. I am already so excited for Halloween, I cannot wait to start decorating!  Go check out the other BBTB2 girls' designs for this week's challenge and check out the other digi images from The Stamping Boutique!

Miles of Smiles,
