Fantasy Crafters Challenge #4 and 31DOH Day 18

It's almost upon us!! This time of year is my favourie time - the colours of the leaves changing and that crisp feel to the air, hot chocolate and warm jumpers and of course - Halloween and Bonfire Night! Of course, my body disagrees with me but I tend to try to ignore its protests as I gleefully look forward to all things spooky and dark.

There's been a gap between my last 31DOH make and this one, due to health issues, but here's one I made for a DT inspiration, and there will be more to follow so do pop by on the blog hop.

Hannah Lynn has brought out some fabulous digital stamps just for the occasion and we at Fantasy Crafters DT had the honour of choosing from her newest spooky creations - aren't we lucky!! I chose Batty Over You. If you look ever so closely you'll see a cute little face peeking out - a tiny bat she's holding.
I used my Polychromos pencils to colour the main image in, blending with the white pencil. I wanted to add more to the scene, so chose a freebie image from Sheepski Designs called Hallow Hall and coloured that in with mostly blacks and greys, and added some warm candle glow to the windows and open door for suitable effect. I found a piece of A5 Gorjuss Girls paper that was the perfect colour so cut the cute girlie off for use another time and used the remainder as my paper background.  I fussy cut both the house/moon and the girl out and glued them on top of the paper. I needed something else... I found a cute cobweb die cut leftover from last year's stash, and printed off a suitable sentiment from a digi set I bought from Kenny K stamps. I edged the wording after cutting round it roughly, with Stazon ink in Soot Black to take away some of the starkness.

Think it came out pretty cute! What do you think? Hope you like it too.
