Happy Haunting

The Haunted Design House's Macabre Monday Challenge #4 is Repulsive Riddle and Rhyme. I came up with a rhyme "beware the park, when it's dark". It's not very repulsive unless you're looking at that park and letting your imagination tell you what's going on inside there. ugh, I'm not gonna think about it, too gross for me, even I have my limits.
I found a new challenge starting today, it's Paper Maniac. Their first challenge is to emboss, dry or heat. For this card I heat embossed the bats and the fence in black.
This scene was made by combining stamps from two new MFT sets, "Too Cute to Spook" and "Ghoulish Labels". They were stamped on white card stock with Memento Black and colored with copic markers and then I sponged Ranger Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick and Memento Dandelion over the card stock. I didn't sponge anything over the little girl. I think it makes her look magical and innocent. She's mounted on dimensionals. The paper is from K & Co, Tim Coffey Halloween Specialty paper. I flipped the striped paper over and used the reverse side to punch the boo border on with an EK Success punch. The ribbon is from the MFT Halloween collection and the sentiment was punched with SU oval and scalloped oval punches.
Thank you taking the time to visit. I hope you enjoyed yourself. Hey, don't forget to click the pink ribbon.


  1. Gosh, it's hard to compliment a ghoulish card, isn't it? I really want to tell you how cute and adorable it its and how much I love it, but it's supposed to be repulsive....sigh. I love it - sorry!

  2. So beautiful and so creative! Great card!

  3. I'm loving the scene you've created, Chris! The graveyard with the creepy tree & fence, and then that sweet little witch... so cute! Thank for playing along with Macabre Monday!

  4. The little girl is too cute! The park looks extra spooky. Love the border punch and the paper.

  5. Love it!! I love especially love the contrast between the spooky background scene and the cute little girl. i think you achieved the look you were going for. Love these MM challenges!
