Halloween Haunts


 Hello Monday my friends! And welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Stamp It/STAMPtember Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is: DIE CUTS

I had so much fun creating my Halloween Haunts scene in my art journal. 

I began by blending lots of distress oxide inks into the background, and masking the moon.

Next, I layered some stenciled designs over the inked background with paints.

Then, I figured out the placement of my die cuts onto the page. 
(The scarecrow is an older die cut.)
I also inked up the edges, then blended some paint into it too. 

I stamped Simon's Crackle Background over the page. I like how it turned my orange cat into a calico kitty. 
"Eh, what's that you say? Beware the scarecrow?"

Purple and orange sky, purple clouds, and mischievous cats...

I stamped HALLOWEEN across this page and added two halloween tickets, so you and I can both go to the Halloween Haunt!

I added some shading and shadows with a graphite pencil and water brush. I also stamped a blueprint bat on the moon. 

Ready for some haunting?  There's a big moon shining, bats flying, a scarecrow and several mischievous cats. I hope you've enjoyed my take on die cuts this week.
