Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - No Cards Allowed

Well this is going to be an amazing Challenge as over here at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we are looking for anything but a card this week. This leaves it wide open for you to get those creative juices flowing and come up with something amazing and original.

For my project I decided to do a trick or treat bag for my daughter who's 9. I found a white canvas bag at our local craft store Michaels. I use 3 colors of my Tim Holtz Distressed Inks and dabbed them on my craft pad. I then misted them with water and stuck my hand in the bag and started pressing randomly in different colors until I achieved something I was happy with. After the bag dried, I stamped a black cat, (not sure the stamp company) along the bottom of the bag, and some bats on the bag hear and there. I then didn't think they were black enough so I went over them with my Black Gelly Pen. I added googly eyes to the bats and cats. For my Spiders I put a big blob of Stickles, and with my Gelly Pen I drew the legs and web. I added the googly eyes to them as well. I stamped Happy Halloween with on the bag and went over it again with the Gelly Pen. I also made matching 3" x 3" cards done with the same technic. After I tye dyed the card I stamped some words from a stamp company that I visited out side of New York City. The work block stamp had spiders on it. Then I added different colored Stickles to their bodies on the card.
