Someone is watching you

Hello fellow Crafters,

This is my second posting and this is my entry for this weeks Stampotique Designer's Challenge which is Halloween. Carol is our host this week and this is what she wrote :

"I particularly choose the month of October to host the challenge as I love Halloween. it was the quirky off beat stamps of Daniel Torrente that first drew me to Stampotique all those years ago, as it then seemed to me that I could make Halloween themed items all year with his gothic style stamps and no one would realize that was what I was doing. I think I may have broken the record on my make for the challenge with the most rubber stamps used on one item, but it was hard as there were just so many to choose from. Hope you all enjoy the challenge and get your spook on for the whole month. carol x
So this is what I made:
This is an art journal spread in my medium Moleskine. I started with a layer of orange paint. One of my Halloween goodies from Jane (as is the spider). I stamped 'Heads' on it as a background and used a white gel pen to highlight their beady little eyes. I also used one stencil (harlequin) with white ink. As I don't own any spiderweb stamps, or any other proper Halloween stamps for that matter, I drew the spider web with a black and silver pen. I had to give this lovely spider a home after all.
I stamped 'Batboy' on white paper and coloured him with watercolourpencils and clear embossed him. I found the pumpkins in a magazine and glued them in the page to put Batboy on.
Lastly I put some rub ons on and stamped the sentiment on black paper with Versamark ink, white embossed it and doodled around the words with a white gel pen.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you like it.....
