Welcome back and today’s theme is Halloween...wha-ha-ha-haaaa!!

We don’t really ‘go all out’ for Halloween in the UK (which is a shame I think) but that doesn’t mean we don’t want and like to make spooky cards! Oh yes! 

So here is mine using the ‘far too cute to spook’ stamp set HALLOWEEN HIGH JINKS
cut out with their matching DIES.

First I made my background by smooshing different inks onto watercolour paper and then cutting some dark grey card with the IN THE GRASS DIE SET.

I then stamped, coloured and die cut all my little characters going for a sort of black & white movie feel.

You may have noticed that the little girl is no longer dressed as a unicorn. Well this was because she really wanted to be a pirate so I stamped and die cut the pirate and cut away his headscarf and sword..

…I also gave her the pirate's hat too… 

Next I wanted a spooky house because, as we all know, that’s the best place for a Halloween party. So to work out how I was going to do it I created a template by cutting the LIL PINK HOUSES DIE twice out of scrap paper, cutting out each individual house and then arranging them as I wanted them.

When I was happy I cut from black card, edged with SNOW WHITE HYBRID INK and glued it all together.  I then coloured in the windows and doors with a yellow marker.

Here is the gang off to their party.
