Quirky Halloween and Autumn

 I'm late for the new challenge at Quirky Crafts and the challenge is seasonal, it is Quirky Halloween or Autumn if you don't do Halloween. I was away for a lovely weekend with my Eldest son, heavily pregnant Daughter in Law and 3 year old grandson (photo on Cazzy Hookin' Time), and had a busy week before we went with no time to make my card.

We are sponsored by the wonderful Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet who provided the team with some great images and are providing three prizes to our top three entrants.

I used two of IkeSart images, Castle Room and Skelly Gossip which I merged together - they really belong! I coloured my scene with Chameleon marker pens, mostly in grey and some nice green mouldy walls and stones, with a brown floor and green door. You have to spend a lot of time lightening your pen for large pale areas and eventually they don't seem to lighten that much until you rest them again, maybe that is just me!

I added some Sizzix Tim Holtz stamped spiders and webs from a stamp and die set, and used the sentiment and frame from the set, I won this set recently as blog candy, and it is one I had on my wish list so I was really lucky.

The little bats are sequins.

I have entered the following spooky challenges:
Addicted to Stamps - #167 Make your Mark (Wed)
Chocolate coffee and cards - Halloween (Fri)
Ike's Art - #49 Halloween.
Pile it on - spooky or cute (Sun/Wed)
Cards Galore - Halloween (Oct)

Delicious Doodles - Halloween with no purple or orange (it's brown - it is)(Oct)

This little crocheted bat will appear on Cazzy Hookin' Time with details of the free pattern!

If you would like to play along with our challenge, either with Halloween or with Autumnal makes - any kind of project can play - hop on over to Quirky Crafts Challenge blog now!
