SDC 166 Get your Spook On

Am getting to enjoy Halloween a little more each year but sadly this is not something celebrated locally so i enjoy vicariously through Blogland and everyone’s projects.

Over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog this week Carol has chosen to Get Her Spook On, this is what she has to say:

I love Halloween and as a crafter it can never start early enough. So for the challenge this week I am sneaking it in a week early. So I hope you have fun getting an early Spook on. Carol x

My card this week isn’t up to standard but am sharing anyway, thought if it looks bad it must be perfect for Halloween, not brilliant thinking lol, lets see if you agree.


We open up with Picture Door from Stampotique which i cut out so it opens. Used kraft card as i love how the colours are slightly muted. Used Kaiserfusion Pens to colour the door and windows, use Sakura Pens to add a little bling to his t-shirt, the door handle and the door hinges.


At the moment i am slightly obsessed with using up some of the mop up towel and tissue backgrounds i have, the background is one of the mop up tissues adhered with watered down pva glue.

The flower is one of my favourites from Memory Box called Chloe, the character is one of Lindsay Masons from her Doo Lally Pip range, she has been coloured, not successfully, with Kaiserfusion pens, struggle with alcohol pens. think i need to try something else…


Love this saying with it’s splodges, i use it a lot.


The door is open and there is the young girl taking her bats for a walk alongside her pup.

As you can see not brilliant but i am hopeful it will make someone smile somewhere.

Thanks for dropping by.



  1. What a great picture story here! I think you have done an outstanding job creatively bringing together all sort of elements--like tissue paper background! A+ from me! Thanks so much for participating in the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week!

  2. Nothing wrong with the card M,it's fab and a little spooky perfect. Have you tried promarkers? They are brilliant,don't have any issues with them. Or try Inktense pencils,not alcohol based of course but really rich controllable colours. Actually,you'll know this already,sorry!

    Big hugs
    Have a great weekend

  9. I think it's perfect Mo! Just have fun, that's what it's about! Love the door, so creative! big hugs :)

  10. Super cool, I LOVE interactive cards. Really fab. I'm the same, I kind of love making something for Halloween even if we don't actually celebrate here. Well actually as I've just moved I have no idea if people do the whole trick or treat thing here. Obviously we will have to get a ton of sweets just in case and then eat them all ourselves if no one comes around! Shame! :) Kx

  11. Fab card and the quote is perfect! Thanks for joining us again this week at Stampotique.

  12. Absolutely marvelous! I think this is great fun. I'm always a sucker for anything interactive and am a big fan of using used mop-up towels, etc. too.
