"Crafty Chaos Designs sells digital downloads, mostly papers that you can print yourself at home, but also some stamps and sentiment packs. We cater mostly to crafters who enjoy the less-cute side of creating, and if you're looking for papers that include skulls or spiderwebs or gorgeously grunged-up damask patterns, then you need look no further, because we have dozens and dozens to choose from."
As you can see, Crafty Chaos Designs is donating 2 items of the winner's choice from their shop! How cool is that!! Be sure to be on the lookout for a second hidden image and email us the location to qualify for a chance to win this prize.
Now I am very excited to share my project with you, as it is not something you normally see done with stamps. Tori and I have always talked about getting tattoos with our stamps as the design....we've even actually had a customer and friend (Sugar!) get tats featuring our images! Unfortunately, my kids want to do the same thing. Obviously they are not old enough to get tattoos, but we found an alternative that is super fun.
In my house we commonly give each other henna tattoos, and I pretty much have henna powder in the house at all times. We LURVE IT!!! I thought how cool would it be if we made Halloween themed henna tattoos using our stamps as the "stencil"! So, we did.
I started by stamping the design that each person wanted using brown ink. I made sure it was non-toxic, and figured since I get it on my hands all the time, it couldn't be THAT bad, right? Besides, it would only be on the skin for a bit.
Anyways, after stamping the image I traced using the henna. We then let it dry, wiped it off, and that's it! I've included pics of the stencil, the wet henna, and the finished henna. The finished henna images are still super light and may be hard to see, but they will darken over the next few days.
My youngest chose the creepy-cute bear image from Candy Is Dandy and put it on her hand. We also added the words "That's Kinda Creepy" because, well, that's what she wanted it to say (she's 5 years old lol)

My second oldest chose the Mummy Grumpie from our Creepy Li'l Grumpies set and put it on her shoulder blade. She wanted a little shading on it, so we smudged some of the lines inward.
Finally, I chose the bloody heart from Candy Is Dandy because I just had a cool idea for it.
Like I said, these will darken over the next few days. And the great thing about them for the kids is, they will go away! Then they can try another Halloween-themed design to go Trick or Treating with. Super fun!
So, I hope you've enjoyed taking a look. Hop on through the wicked blogs, and be sure to check back later today for our Day 4 sponsor winner info. Have fun!
