Smell My Feet
Give Me Something Good to Eat
This Halloween themed ATC triptych is inspired by the new Halloween Darlings, Little Demons & Halloween Dress Up Collage Sheets at Alpha Stamps.  I love the whimsical children with pumpkin, animal and skull heads.  There were so many great images that I decided to decorate both the back and front of the cards.

The bag images have tabs that you can fold; add some ribbon and you have 3-D Trick-or-Treat bags.
To dress up the kids outfits, I used 4mm orange buttons, a miniature buckle, green acrylic carbochons (as eyes) and a black crescent moon bead.
I glued wire to the balloons to make them look like they are floating.
The bases of the cards are made up of wrought iron chipboard sets.  I decided to cut-up the decorative overlays and paint them to compliment the paper.  
To embellish the cards, I added black acrylic bats and a cat.
I used Halloween Black Foil Stripes Scrapbook paper for the background and glued the hinges in place before adding the paper.
