Halloween ‘Couture’ Tote Bag


I was burning the ‘midnight oil’ last night to complete my entry for the Papertake Weekly Challenge as I have a manic week ahead at work. I have also entered the little bag into A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge. The theme this week was for a Halloween item. I am not mad keen on Halloween colours, so I decided it would have to be a ‘little Designer bag’ in softer shades, full of sweets to fill the brief. I enlarged a bag template I had to accommodate the lovely Halloween Tilda image and to get in all of the little extras I wanted to add. Tilda was coloured with Pro Markers and I used glossy accents on the hanging cat emblem and the buttons to give them a lift. I used Eye Candy 5 Impact plug- in for Photoshop to create a glass and bevel effect on these – I could play with this for ever – I keep thinking of all the buttons I can create, there will be no stopping me now!!!!!!!
