BBTB2--The Stamping Boutique/Halloween Challenge....

This week on Bitten By The Bug 2 we are doing something a little different. The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring our challenge this week and we are doing a Halloween theme. We were asked to pick one of The Stamping Boutique's Halloween/Fall themed digital stamps and use it along with one of the Halloween frames on Happy Haunting's (our Leader Heather's choice). 

I couldn't wait to do this project--Copics, Digi Stamps and Cricut together = FUN!

I chose the Frankenstein Digital Image and paired it along with a frame from Happy Hauntings. I think I probably have used this cartridge more than any other in my collection and still love it every time!

Remember to go back to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out what images and frames my other teammates picked and then play along in the challenge with us! 

A great BIG 
The Stamping Boutique for sponsoring us this week :)

 I welded the frame together on my Gypsy to make the card base and then ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Kassie's Brocade Cuttlebug Folder. I then rubbed some chalk ink in Pewter over it to give it a "old" look. Glossy Accents were added to the bats.

 Frankenstein was colored with Copics and then hand cut out.
