Hocus Pocus and other Spooky happenings.

 As you can see I am still playing with my Halloween images and stamps.
All are quite old stamps, some from Chocolate Baroque others I would find difficult to name.
First my Monthly Fat Page swap,- above is side one.

this is the little 'spook' that's hiding behind  door No. 31.

I wanted to create a bit of atmosphere on  the reverse  side of the page. Think I could scare myself on a dark night with this image.
The distress inks I used to shade this were Weathered Wood , a little Spiced Marmalade  and Antique linen.

I would like to enter  my Fat Page into these challenges-
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 228 which is Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving
Moving Along with the Times which is Spooktastic Times

Hocus Pocus

Into Tag mode next and a chance to use up some bits and pieces.
You with notice the old cardboard that I painted and stamped out a good while ago, you will be please to hear its nearly all been used.
The steampunk lady  is cut from the cover of a Graphics 45 paper stack.
She is missing a bit if a wing, but as it wasn't there to start with , I'm not worrying. I added a die cut Bat and a bit of trim to her hat.
All the other scraps were lying  about left over from other projects.

Its hard to believe the photos were taken within minutes  of each other, before I added the ribbons to the tag. The one above is more true to the actual shades.

I will be joining the fun with this tag at-
 Tag Along Challenge-  which is Hocus Pocus.
Altered Eclectics  -October Challenge
Hope it was okay to use this type of left overs.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate the comments you leave me.
