The eyes are watching you!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Inspired by other crafters doing something similar I had to give this a go too as I have loads of "eyes" in my stash hehehe. I inked behind the eyes so they all look like different coloured monsters.

3 Little Witches (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am loving creating Halloween cards this year, especially since I've bought almost all the Tim Holtz oxide inks, creating backgrounds with them is so much fun! The fun little witches are from Saturated Canary. I also added some black Jessie flourishes from Flourish with a Bling - I cut them up so they just poked out the sides of the image, perfect for Halloween projects. They're on sale at half price at the moment along with everything in the store during October only, click HERE to go check out our store.

Heidi's 1st Birthday card (Conie Fong image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

A Witch, a lantern & a full moon Halloween card (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I loved creating this background after watching my favourite Youtuber - Vicky Papaioannou creating a glowing moon. Here's a link to her card - HERE, it's amazing and it's easier than you'd think, I think mine turned out pretty cool and this was my first attempt. I used oxide inks for the background and stamped some leafy stamps to give the impression she's walking through the great outdoors. The stunning image is from Crafts and Me/ Hannah Lynn is the artist.

A Halloween candy monster (Dustin Pike image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

My 2nd card today is a cute little monster that Dustin Pike gave as a freebie a while back, how generous. You can follow his blog by clicking his name above so you get all the freebies he gives out too. I love this little guy and I bought the WRMK woven embossing folder at a craft show on the weekend and couldn't resist trying it out straightaway, I love it! I used my Lawn Fawn square frame and hillside border dies to create the little scene and added some shiny stars to finish it off.
