Be very afraid!

I've been working on this little project for a couple of weeks now and wasn't going to post it until nearer Halloween...but then I saw this week's Waltzingmouse sketch challenge and decided to incorporate my sketch challenge card among these creations.

Before I go any further I have to have a little toot as I made the top 3 Waltzingmouse awards for last week's sketch challenge!!


I love joining in the Waltzingmouse sketch challenges each week and look forward to Saturday mornings to get started. This week's sketch is very me...

And here is my entry...


I decided to do an aperture card using a frame stamp from the Very Vintage Labels 2. I also needed an excuse to use the tiny little lizard stamp from Wanda's Pantry stamp set as I think it is so cute...I don't know about you but I often overlook the little stamps that come with some stamp sets.

Here we have some Halloween candy...humbugs make very good freshly plucked eyeballs don't you think lol...

As I was making these creations I remembered my Inkadinkadoo bat stamp and created a purple moonlit sky to set them against...

...and of course I couldn't resist including an acetate creation as well...


Finally one more shot of the Irish Toad Oil...I actually managed to track down some purple food colouring for this project!! Makes my hyperactive just looking at it! But of course I have no intention of drinking is only for show!
You may have noticed that I've had a little fun with my signature as well in Paint Shop Pro, using the Creepy Girl font for these photos.


I really enojyed making these creations and hope you like them.
Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend whatever you least the weather has improved here so fingers crossed we will be able to have a barbeque this evening!
