edwin does the graveyard shift..... 👻

So guys!

We are nearly at the end of October! How on earth did that happen! like I am sure it was just July last time I looked! sheesh! So since we are heading into the summer here it means Halloween  👻💀☠  is on its way. Back home its autumn for me so I still cant get my head round Christmas in summer.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

So for this card I decided that I wanted a kinda graveyard theme going on. I also wanted some movement in it so I went with my fave pendulum cards.

I coloured Edwin as a mummy with Distress inks. Now he sits on the pendulum top part so he rocks and looks like a mummy coming towards you. I used papers from Pion Designs 'Witching hour" which is such a fabulous collection....yes i bought more..... i couldnt resist.

I coloured the pumpkin with Distress inks. The owl is suspended on some clear acetate so he looks like he is flying and is also coloured with Distress Inks. I cut the gravestone stamped images out and layered them on double sided tape to pop out.

The bat diesand the spooky fence are from La La Land crafts - how fab is that fence! The grass along the border of the fence is from Magnolia. The toadstools edging the pumpkin is also from Magnolia.

On the pendulum part itself inside the card I used a Magnolia sentiment.

Hope you have a great week.
