Haunted house

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today is Thursday and that means another Challenge over at Tag Along. This week is "Haunted House". Now for me this Halloween business is all quite difficult, simply because here in Holland we do not really do Halloween although I have seen some creepy stuff in the shops. I do like all the art that is being shown on the different blogs and websites so slowly I am getting used to it. Anyway I made this :

Started off with a #8 Manilla tag and coloured it with yellow and orange Pan Pastels. After putting fixative on it and drying it I aged the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. Also did a tiny bit of background stamping. I found the house and the bat on the internet and changed it a bit. The moon was punched out of some light yellow paper and glued on. The little boy came from a collage sheet from I put a wizzard's hat on him to make him look a bit spooky. Don't know if he does though ! The bottles were stamped with Distress Inks and altered a bit. I then clear embossed them en glued them on. Lastly I made the little sentiment with rub on letters. This was also distressed a bit and clear embossed. After glueing it on the tag I doodled around with with black and white gel pens. A bit of orange ribbon finished it off.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you like it ......
