I've decided to use this stamp set to create treats for my kids classes for
Halloween 'Owloween. This fall I have 2 kids in school, and need to make twice as many goodies. The treat tube was fun to put together, and I had some of the boxes from a previous campaign and scanned one and created my own file in Explore to cut the box out to hold the tube. It is filled with purple and black jelly beans. I used Black Pigment Ink to stamp all the images and heat set them before colouring. I used the ShinHan Touch Twin Markers to colour them in. The second treat is a bag topper, which is just a 3x5 piece of White Daisy CS scored at 2.5" and folded over and stapled to the bag.
Marker colours used:
Warm Grey WG7
Warm Grey WG4
G46 Vivid Green
