VLVS! All Hallow's Eve Party BLog Hop ~ Luminaries

Welcome to DAY TWO of the Viva Las Vegastamps! All Hallow's Eve Party Blog Hop.    

Every year I decorate my yard for all the ghost and goblins that come "Trick or Treating".  I live on a very dark street and it is easy to make it look really spooky.  To help everyone make to the door, I line the walk with paper bag luminaries with battery operated tea lights.  These would be great way to greet guest for a Halloween party.  Using Viva Las Vegastamps! create one of a kind luminaries for your Halloween party.  These are easy to do, even your children could help!  

All of the images are from Viva Las Vegastamps! and stamped with black ink on white paper bags (lunch size).  Note: Inks may run a little; paper bags are not made of quality paper. The VLVS! Tree Background stamp was used on all bags, stamping it off the edge of the bags.

This bag is outside with the battery tea light inside.
happy haunting
After stamping the images the Full Moon and Skeleton Flashing was colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. Additional stamps: happy haunting, Flock of Bats, Spiked Fence, Cemetery and Tree Background.

I love how they look with the tea light inside. Stamps:Flock of Bats,Full MoonSpiked FenceCemetery, Oct. 31, Ghost (stamped 3 times), Haunted House, Skeleton in Long Coat and Tree Background.
Can't wait until Halloween when I will use these.  Stamps:Poison, Skull and CrossbonesR.I.P. and Jack o'Lantern, Pasteurs Death Potion, Giant head Skeleton and Tree Background
At twilight I attempted to take pictures. The first picture here gives you an idea of what they look like, but the flash washed out the effect of the tea lights.  The second is taken without a flash and a bit blurry, but you get the idea of what the walk looks like.

Your challenge today from Viva Las Vegastamps! is to create a brand new VLVS! inspired Halloween project and link up!  Use the ideas from the Design Team or come up with your own.  Deadline: Friday the 28th of Sept at midnight!!! MORE INFORMATION HERE!
