Get Your Spook On! for That's Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
Friday 13th! what a fabulous day to start a new Spooky Challenge fortnight over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog. So if you fancy 'getting your spook on' why not come along and join in with us and share your spooky make.
Before I show you my DT inspiration piece I need to issue a WARNING!!!! 
The piece I am about to share with you features DECAPITATION, you have been warned!!!

Still with me? You don't easily scare then?
I used Sheena's stamping card and cut a circle out from the centre, both pieces have then been coloured using distress oxides, I love the black soot oxide. Once I had coloured the moon I just put the circle back in. 
I then stamped out my 3 gentlemen, Carabelle Studio and Tim Holtz stamps, and then I............
chopped off their heads and transplanted 3 of Tim Holtz pumpkin stamps. All has been coloured with copics and coloured pencils.

The Pumpkin Heads text has been stamped with Tim's Gothic Foam cling stamps and black soot oxide ink, lining everything up around the circle made easy as I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform. Happy Halloween, again a Tim Holtz stamp, was stamped in black archival. Finally I added one of Tim's die cut Ravens from his 'Feather & Ravens' Thinlits.
There is even more 'Spooky' inspiration for you from the team HERE
I hope you decide to come and play along with us this fortnight and as always one randomly chosen entry will be the lucky winner of a £20 voucher to spend online at That's Crafty Store. Your chance to win £20 starts HERE
Thanks as always for stopping by I really appreciate your visit.
