Inspiration Station Challenge 16

Well two little part time jobs have entered their busy period.   You will see more and more Christmas themed items and gift ideas in the Supermarkets from now on.   My role and that of hundreds of other folk like me are building those units, stocking them and restocking.   Makes finding time in the craft room more precious.

It is the start of a new challenge at Inspiration Station.  Here is our Inspiration picture for you.

Yes we have thoughts of Halloween, with this wonderful image of someone surrounded by Pumpkins!  We don't have a trick or treat tradition here in the UK but increasingly it is catching on.  We have always marked All Hallows Eve with parties and games such as apple bobbing. 

Anyway the image inspired me to come up with this spooky little scene.

Started with a Postcard format and stamped it in Sepia with an old Stampendous stamp.   Aged Mahogany DI dusted around the edge while squeezed Lemonade dusted over her face, which for me in this project is the moon.   White pen used to draw * for stars and to give the rabbits little white tails.

The little chipboard creatures are from Tando painted with acrylic paints.  So there is is just a fun simple little postcard.  What will the picture inspire you to do? please share your pieces with us at Inspiration Station.

I'd also like to share this with.
