I will be sharing today's Halloween make on Leigh's page...

~~~~~~~

It's Halloween!!

Val started an ATCoin swap on LeighSBDesigns Fan Group on Facebook...
I wanted to take part but I really only got started...



On the front you can see a coin with Leigh's Tangled Witch's hat.
You can also see two with Hellgnomes Death Digi's Yarrr, coloured with Copics and cut out.
Most of them have a circle of marbling over a scrap of card...

~~~~~~~~

I did want to finish with a spooktacular make - I have had the printed digis for the following card on my worktable since the beginning of October - with an idea in my head.


Strange hat Dracula has?





It is a triple pull-out card using Rick St Dennis' image coloured with Copics.



Last year I won the whole set of Rick St Dennis's Halloween set!!
Spooktacular is a Tonic die.





Well that's it for another year...

Happy Halloween!

We went to one of the other pubs in the village last night - and rather liked this pumpkin...

I am still pretty pleased with mine though...

Our evening is just starting but for my granddaughters in Australia it is already over but they had a good time - and they carved a turnip!

Anyway I am just going to share the last few pages of my main 31DOH project:


The Hunting Of The Snark -  a Poem by Lewis Carroll


Image may contain: indoor


I finished with this double page in the last post - I am still adding images that could possibly be Snarks!! Some of the images you have already seen as ATCs during the 31 Days.




These are the last few pages -  the first ATC I added is orange card, marbling, washi and a Tim Holtz Bird embossed in black. Some of the other ATCs you have already seen...




This one has one of Leigh's zombies:



One of the cracked critters:


This page has Hellgnomes Death Digi's Yarrr, coloured with Copics and cut out.

This is the last stanza of the poem - in fact Lewis Carroll wrote this first. Actually the last line came to him first, then the rest of the verse and eventually he wrote the rest of the poem!



On the left hand side of this double page is an Oddballs freebie.



And this is my final double page -
 couldn't finish without a Grumpy!! (Smeared Ink - no longer trading)


I have got a couple more things on my worktable - and I do hope to blog them before the night it out - we will see!

Happy Halloween!

Are you waiting for more of my main 31DOH project?

The Hunting Of The Snark -  a Poem by Lewis Carroll



I finished with this double page in the last post - I am still adding images that could possibly be Snarks!! Some of the images you have already seen as ATCs during the 31 Days.



The next page has one of my favourite Smeared Ink (No longer Trading) digis - Hallo Kitty - coloured with Promarkers and cut out.


On the left hand side of this double page I have added a piece of a lovely eco-print sent me by a fellow crafter. I really must have a go at this! On the right are images you have already seen. The winged skellies are from Hellgnome Digis.


Another eco print from my friend and Leigh's Bizarre Beasties.


Another of my favourite Smeared Ink digis - Devil Boy - coloured with  Promarkers and cut out.


The Barrister - one of Henry Holiday's illustrations, made into an ATC.


Just a few more pages to come...

To finish this post I am just going to add a couple of Halloween cards I put together this afternoon.



Both the images used are freebies from Lizzy Love and the Oddballs Newsletter.
For this first card I printed it on a card so that I could just fold it into a card. 
I just added a little colour with Copics.



For the second card I printed the image on a background paper from Dragonslair.
I then coloured it with Copics and added the little witch from Stampin Up.


I then decided to cut the windows and door so they would open and stamp some Stampin Up images behind.




These images were stamped on the inside of an insert  - I stamped more on the side that would be seen on opening the card.







Happy Hopping!

The Hunting Of The Snark -  a Poem by Lewis Carroll

Next has a cracked critter on a scrap of number paper on a gelli pull.



The flasks and flagons are Rick St Dennis rubber stamps coloured with Copics.



Next we have the Broker - one of Henry Holiday's pictures.



The next two have cracked critters on papers from my stash.

Spot Prize 4 / GIVEAWAY WINNER!!


As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,





Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,

How many were there going to St. Ives?

The answer to the riddle is of course ONE - the others were going away from St Ives - I did wonder if any of you would start adding up all the cats, kits, sacks and wives...

I had lots of correct answers - so my independent adjudicator picked the name from the hat...



The winner is...

Arianna Barbara
