Something Spooky

Good morning crafters, I hope I find you well.
As its Saturday it means a new challenge over at Fantasy Stampers. You didn't appear to be inspired by our last challenge so here's hoping your are going to prefer our latest challenge -


Yep, its a Halloween theme this challenge. Now regular readers will know that I'm not a big fan of this 'celebration' and I don't have any Halloween themed stamps and as it's a traditional stamping challenge I couldn't use a digi, so I had to think laterally.

I started this card quite a while ago and it has changed quite a few times before I finally came up with this finished card.
I started off with a piece of white card which was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder which I had inked with DI and spritzed with water before running it through my Big Shot. I wasn't satisfied with where I went next so I inked some white card around a circular mask with DIs to create a moon. I then stamped the bottom edge with a tree stamp from the Elusive Images Tall Trees set in black.  I tore across the panel and distressed the edges then cut a bat freehand and added a few freehand bats in pen. A little bit of Weathered Wood DI was smudged across the moon to give a bit of dimension. 
Voila, a spooky scene with no Halloween stamps!
OK, now its your turn, have a go even if you have no themed staps, let your imagination flow!
If you want more inspiration pop across to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT inspiration.

I shall enter the following challenges-
