 It was my turn to  pick the theme for this new Challenge.  over at
 Fashionable  Stamping Challenges.  It will probably come as no surprise to  many  that I chose Halloween.
If Halloween is not your thing , we would like  you use  Halloween Colours on your entry..
 Remember we  like to see stamping on your project/card.
My team mates have made some fantastic examples so please pop over and see what they made and get all the details.

First of all these pages are also part of the Halloween Book I  started
showing you a couple of days ago.
The picture on the right shows you what is lurking behind the door.
handsome chap for the time of the year!
The background stamp I have had a while, cannot remember the maker.
All other stamps used on these two pages are by, Stampers Anonymous and Crafty Individuals and Chocolate Baroque.

The shading and colouring is a mixture of water colour paints, Walnut Stain, Black Soot and  Vintage Photo distress inks.
The image of the little guy came from a crafting friend. He 's looking a bit green, that should teach him not to open doors, who knows what's inside, on All Hallows Eve.

I will also be entering these challenges-
Diva's By Design  -  Something Spooky
Art with No Boundaries  -October Monthly Challenge Halloween

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate you calling.
