Halloween Treat - Magnolia-licious Highlites October Challenge

Hello. Happy October!

It's time for a new challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge BlogAngela is our hostess this October and she has chosen 'Halloween Project (no cards)' as the theme for our challenge. 

I struggled in deciding what to make.  Finally decided to make Treat or Trick bags--well, they're treat bags really, no tricks in them...LOL.  With time running out though...yikes, I was able to make only 2 of them.

Here's a view from a different angle to show the sides of the treat bags and also of how I've similarly decorated the back of both bags. 

One of the Magnolia images I am featuring is this Wizard Tilda--I call her the female Harry Potter...LOL.  She is from the Princes & Princesses Collection 2012.

And this is Sitting Witch Tilda (link is for the mini stamp), from the So Spooky Collection 2009.  OMG, I didn't realize that collection was that old.  This Tilda looks just as adorable as newer ones, don't you think?   I've used my markers to colour these images.

Check out Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious, as your source for your Magnolia stamps.  Diana has a vast colletion of other full-size as well as mini images.  You can expect excellent services and  discounted prices, as well as earning in-store credit on each order.

wow... I love this treat bag !
Beautiful coloring

Chris said...

Norma, I am probably going to short circuit my computer because of the drool dripping from my mouth! Girl, these have been colored with such perfection. I love the second one just a little more because of the depth and highlights you have on Tilda's dress. Both are just amazing (and I rarely use that word)! Oh, how I wish I could color like you! Wow!

Thank you for sharing your works of art with everyone and those of us at Hooked on Craft!

SO CUTE! Great "Treat" bags for Halloween and the perfect images for these bags! Love how you decorated them and as always, your coloring is stunning! Who wouldn't want to receive treat bags like these! I like it because they are adorable and not "spooky" or "gorie" as I don't like creepy things LOL!
