What's Brewin"?

Well, by the stretch of the imagination I took a fish bowl from Repeat Impressions Plate 9700 and made it into a cauldron sitting on a fire. I added some bats from Sparkle N Sprinkle and computer generated my sentiment for a different kind of Halloween card. I also added a handle and used a silver paint pen for that. I colored it with Copics but around the outside edges I used a sponge and added Gina K. Designs Moonlight Fog, Blue Denim and Navy dye inks. I also used Black Momento to stamp my cauldron.


I don't know why but for some reason I dreamed up this design last night when sleep eluded me. LOL I guess I had Halloween on my mind.

I guess I will enter this into the challenge at Repeat Impressions DCC924-Fall and also the Modsquad Blog challenge which is a word challenge-namely HOLIDAY.

How cute is that! I love when I am able to use a stamp for something other than what was intended. Great job turning your fish bowl into a cauldron. Thanks for joining us this week at the Mod Squad.

Brilliant use of the fish bowl! I am so pinning this and may case this idea for a future Repeat Impressions card- if ok with you. I too find stamping ideas come to me when trying to go to sleep at night. I keep a notebook by the bedside to write them down.
