Happy Halloween ....

... Morning! I hope that you all had a good weekend. Ours was reasonably restful - Kat got her homework done and then chilled, Jonathan was out at a photo shoot and I got to mess around in my craft room. I was busy making Halloween cards and I've a fun one to share with you this morning:

Stamps: Impression Obsession - Bump in the Night; Stampin' Up! - Jar of Haunts, Ghoulish Grunge
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies; Lil Inkers - Dual Stitched Squares #1
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Glossy Accents

I got the idea for this layout from Kristina Werner while watching the online class, Wild Card. However, I didn't make a shaker card - just a window card! I used the colours from CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#194 and as I've used more than 5 stamps I'm going to submit this to Inkspirational - INK#119.

I created the window frame by die cutting four small squares next to each other. I placed the cut panel on some white card and lightly pencilled inside the windows so that I would know where to stamp the images. I then stamped the little Halloween monsters in three of the windows and added a greeting in the fourth window. I coloured the images with Copics and added a coat of sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I adhered the frame over the coloured panel and then layered it on to some black card. I stamped a cobweb in the corner of the card base and attached the finished panel with some dimensional tape. I decided to add some Glossy Accents to the monsters' eyes. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and added a greeting and more little monsters to the white panel.

I love this new set from Impression Obsession - such fun little monsters! I don't have too many things in the diary this week, so I WILL get round to tidying up my craft room. It's a bit of a mess at the moment. Bye for now

Good luck on the tidying effort - I always get distracted and start playing rather than tidying! I love your little monsters, such fun. Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches again this week. Liz x
