Spooky for Halloween - Stampotique


It's Carol's turn to choose this weeks Stampotique theme and she's gone for spooky / Halloween.  The background is a patterned paper with skulls.  I die cut the rickety house, stamped over it with the mini brick stamp in white ink and added orange to the windows. I stamped the tree onto ribbed kraft paper in timber brown stazon and cut it out.  I die cut and embossed the grave stones and scribbled on them in white posca pen, I also coloured the top one in ruby treasure gold.

Another Stampotique image I chose was the skeleton aka the beast. I stamped him twice onto a lightweight card as I wanted to cut him out and reposition his bones to make him more upright!!!  I stamped the freakin people person quote onto white card and edged in black pen and added the die cut bats to finish.

Country View Crafts have a theme of something spooky for Halloween, so I'm entering there too!!

Anything but a Card have a colour challenge this month, colours of the season - black and orange!!
