The Cauldron Bubbles... StretchNBubbles, that is!  The SNB Creative Chick Challenge this week used the image Bonnie's Cauldron... I saw the froggie in the there, but it took me a while to identify the other..... it's an EYE!  Eeewwww!  I find Halloween themes a little tough sometimes, because we don't celebrate it here in Australia (except for those that fall prey to the mass marketing of costumes and candy... it's a misunderstood event, because it is the wrong season for us..... it falls in our Spring. But I do love using orange and green in my creations, so I battle on!

Ingredients used: Cardstock - Cre8tiv; Marker - Marvy Le Plume; Stardust Pens, Glaze Pens - Sakura; Ink - Versamagic.

I used Glaze pen to colour the cauldron and frog.... it looks awesome in shiny black glaze!  The flames are red stardust, and orange glaze.  Distressing with ink isn't my forte, but I still like the haphazard look I got, kida like stalagmites in a cave, and a bit grungy.  I feel sorry for the frog. I don't like being in hot water!
