This weekend I finally sat down to execute my plan for this month’s calendar challenge (orange and pumpkin) which I had already drown out  in the beginning of the month but I just didn’t got around making it, but maybe that was faith, because now I can also post it for the weekly challenge (Halloween). 

I used orange DI on a craftmat, sprayed some water on top and dragged my paper through it until it was completely covered. It was a bit too light to my likings, so I grabbed my applicator and made some swirls with the same DI which made it much better.

Then I warmed up my heat tool to cut my haunted house and cemetery stencil.
The haunted house actually consists of 2 stencils, the outline and an overlay for the windows and door.

After some stencilling, stamping and adding some details this is how the finished page looks like.


  1. Love the colour variation in the background - great stencil too!

  2. Magnificent!!! You are very clever indeedy! :D

  3. Lots of spookiness! Not sure what you mean by warming up your heat tool to cut the stencil though ...

    1. literary what it says, it is a metal pen which you heat up and it melts the plastic.

  4. Well done for creating your stencil, brilliant! And a lovely Halloween scene for this month's page.

  5. Great spooky house and well done on cutting your own stencil.

  6. Fabulous. Love the stencils. Very clever.
