Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - 266: Things that go Bump in the Night.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.

Kim is hosting today and our challenge is -'Things that go Bump in the Night'. 

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be cards as long as it meets the challenge.

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:


And here we have it a rather spooky midnight scene, even the pumpkins look worried.

If you'd like to see how I made this then read on and if not maybe you'd like to pop over to the challenge.

Masterboards first of course.
This was just a piece I'd played around with earlier when making another piece. When making a Masterboard if there's spare ink around be it on the mat or needing to be removed from the project I always use another sheet of card, nothing goes to waste here.

More ink added until....

You're happy with the colour and then start to add the detail. Tim Holtz cobwebs first.

Several more Tim Holtz stamped images and then used the Karen Burniston Album, Accordion Flip 3D. (This is the older Bigz die by Sizzix and I believe they now do a thinlits one too.)
You simply cut as many of these sections as you wish and then join them together.

Stamped and coloured the Tim Holtz Pumpkins and fussy cut them out.

I added the pumkins, die cut cobwebs, owl, insects. broom, moon and bats.

I couldn't resist adding some extras to the back.

I hope you will 
pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.

 I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.

Happy crafting.
Angela xXx

Oh dear... you just reminded me I have a similar die to construct multi-panel cards that I haven't used for ages! Great Masterboard to start with and the Halloween critters and pumpkins are great fun! Have a great week, Angela! x

This is just amazing Angela, so much work.
I hope that we will continue to meet up in blogland after this last challenge, I will miss being challenged once a fortnight, although I am absolutely rubbish at the commenting just lately.
Stay safe my Crafty friend.
