i love creating for halloween so I was very excited to play with tricky trio dies for this week's papertrey ink throwback thursday. it's the perfect sentiment to add to any Halloween stamp set or image, so I pulled out scared silly and put them to work together.
i decided to go with my favorite halloween color scheme of green, purple, and black in the form of green parakeet, plum pudding, and a mix of true black, smokey shadow, and soft stone for my blacks and neutrals. The shape of the long line trick or treat die reminded me of a seesaw so i chose that one and let it guide my layout, adhering it on an angle between a cutaway in the soft stone panel and balancing a scared silly monster on the middle.
i selectively inked "li'l monster" under the die to relate the sentiment to the image. and with a trick or treat phrase as part of my focal point, i thought it would be fun to give my monster a trick or treat bag - with a coordinating eyeball, of course! not only is he cute, but he moves too - i couldn't resist another wobbly monster and i think the recipient who ends up with this will agree. a card that moves is the best! well that's all for today. it's a quickie tricky from me, but if you haven't already, be sure to check out a couple more throwback treats by dawn and michelle, both linked on the papertrey ink blog...
