Merry Halloween Matchboxes

Matchboxes, Matchboxes, Matchboxes! I love making them. This time I used the Petals-A-Plenty for a Halloween box and it came out as elegant as a Xmas box. I just got my SU! Merry Embosslits and it went well with my Little BOO stamp.. soooo cute! I also used the Halloween part of the the stamp in "ALL HOLIDAY" set.

Anyway, I hope you like it :)

INK TIP: BASIC BROWN, BASIC BLACK, and BASIC GRAY CLASSIC INKS are WATERPROOF !!!! In this holiday season, you may want to purchase your SHIMMER PAINTS, p.27 (Holiday Mini Catalogue). Your base inks will not run or smudge with these paints and it will give you that HOLIDAY effect you want.
