OOOOOOhhhhhAAAhhhhhhhh It's Hallowe'en!!!!!

Hi and creepy greetings to you all, this is my Hallowe'en effort for the Craft Barn
Check out the CB DT's makes this week they've been very inventive again and put me to shame but here goes..........




I made a couple of cards and both use the new and very spooky stamps from PaperArtsy The first has a secret message ooohhh!!! I hear you say LOL
I love the sentiment it makes me smile everytime I read it


My next card uses the large skull and some drippy wax from a red candle, looks a little like blood?
Both cards have oil pastels for the backgrounds, they smuged beautifully in the first for the grass and in the second the black and brooding cave. I used a fine oil on a cotton bud to spread the pastel on the card.
I hope you like my offerings, I'm off travelling so I will catch up with you later, thank you for looking. Have a great week my friends, Gay x
p.s, I have removed comment moderation, I hope it all behaves and I'll get back to catch up with everyone as soon as I am able, Gay xx

I used
PaperArtsy Stamps: Halloween 1
Oil Pastels in Black, Violet, Grey and Olive Green
Crafty Individuals tree stamps CI-209
Metallic F/X Silver mica powder for the small card
Cosmic Shimmer: Silver embossing powder for the skull and crossbones
