This Thursday It's the Spooky Season......
















I was honoured to be Guest Designer again this week for This Thursday.
It's well and truly Spooky over there, I had brilliant stamps to work with this week from Artistic Outpost, such great designs. Thanks to Tracey and the fab DT team for inviting me to do this Spooky Week!!!

Well I started off with an actual pumpkin, scooping out the inside and adding all my little elements to make a little scene, Oh! boy did I have some fun doing this!!
I then got a bit of roof slate and added straws covered with thread, added fantasy fibre, wool over the edge for a wee web, I stamped the boy image onto acetate (which was horrendous to photo but perseverance won in the end!!), added my skull image and the gorgeous phrase from the stamp plate. The metal is from the inside of a tomatoe puree tube!
Lastly I did a 4x4 with the witch flying over the moon, using acrylics, ink and cosmics.
I stamped the gate onto acetate again, masked the image and added the cat's face.
So come on over to This Thursday and check out all the brilliant DT examples, get all your spooky stuff out and join us in this Spooky Challenge, we would love to see what you come up with!!
