New Release! Witches Brew at DoubleClick Skittles

(This is 1 of 3 projects posted today)

DoubleClick Skittles is announcing a brand new release today called, "Witches Brew".  We're all just a little excited with these fun new colors called, Pumpkin, Witch and Frog Legs (they made a comeback!).  

To celebrate the new release, I've made a Spooky Fun Luminary that features the new Witches Brew Skittles, as well as the Black Skittles.  

The owl image is from Miss Kate Cuttables and I've added black skittles for the eyes.  Look at the skittles across the bottom.  Aren't they gorgeous?!  I placed a strip of  May Arts glittered ribbon around the bottom then glued them with clear glue.

To create my luminary, I heat embossed a tree stamp from Unity Stamps, then used the watercolor smooshing technique with my vellum paper.   I swiped my Tombow Dual brush pens on an acrylic block (one color at a time) and spritzed with water, then placed my vellum randomly over the wet color.  Allow to sit a minute or so, then blot excess color with a paper towel.  Repeat until you have all the desired colors on your paper.

The vellum has a tendency to ripple when wet, so when it dried, I rolled it around a bottle and let sit awhile to reshape itself, then adhered the back edge with a strip of Scor-Tape.

New releases have a tendency to sell out quick, particularly the seasonal ones, so don't wait, and then come crying to me later thinking I can hook you up!  Haha!  Carri has 3 different price options for this set, starting at an amazeballs price of $3.75 for the 3 pk set.  That includes free USA shipping and PAYPAL accepted.  You really can't beat that.

You can shop here:

Here's my luminary all lit up with a candle inside.  Isn't it spooky fun and pretty?  I really do love it.  The Witches Brew Skittles are the PERFECT color for this.  You'll find these colors will coordinate with many of your Halloween and Fall projects.
