Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Too Cute to Spook

Yippee! Not only is it Saturday...but it's half-term...so I now have a whole week off work...woo-hoo! And what better way to start, than with a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge? Our theme for you this week is:

'Too Cute to Spook'

The prize for the lucky winner is 'Frightful Flight':

I've made a little pillow box for some Hallowe'en treats...using an image from the 'Don't be Scared' set...of course by Penny Black. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then cut him out using my Nesties. I added some paper from the 'Boo yo you!' collection by My Mind's Eye...having distressed the edges and added faux stitchinhg using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.


I'm also entering this box into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
