Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Inktense Pencils on a Card.

Hi there to all my friends and fellow crafters out in Bloggy land,
 and a big warm Welcome and thank you to my New Followers.

I know it's a bit early, but I felt the need to make something spooky, and when I saw the fab 'Max Rocks' and 'Molly Rules' sets of stamps from
I knew they were perfect for what I wanted to do, lol.

These stamps would be great for children to colour in and create with, they  could make their own Halloween cards or invitations.

 Molly and Max were stamped onto a piece of card, and coloured using Inktense watercolour pencils, and fussy cut.
 I stamped out a load of Molly's skulls in black, to make the lanterns, coloured them with distress ink, and also fussy cut them.
It was fun building a wall using Max's brick stamp, 
(I did this on a separate piece of card, cut it out, so I could attach it exactly where I wanted).
I stamped and heat embossed the lock and key in silver, and fussy cut.
I created a field of Max's skulls, and used Molly's barbed wire for the stems.
The background was achieved with Distress inks, adding the trees and bats,
(I borrowed them both from 'Edward is Immortal' another fab set for Halloween)
Made a string for the lanterns, again using the barbed wire from Moll's set, and attached the little yellow skulls.
Using Black Archival (because it is soooo black, lol) I stamped the chain across the skull field, and then attached the wall, popped on Molly and Max, added a skull to poor teddy, stamped both sentiments onto shrink plastic, (I do love this stuff), and added some shading around the edges.

I used a glitter pen and glossy accents for finishing the touches.
