House Mouse & Friends do Halloween

It's time for a new challenge at House Mouse & Friends and the the turn of the fabulous, the one and only - Scoopy Sue to choose - what other theme could she choose this week but - HALLOWEEN

We're featuring card with either a Halloween theme or Halloween colors. Please don't fret if you don't have a Halloween image ~ as you'll see, several of our DT members tried to help you out and made projects without a Halloween image. So, extra bonus points if you do this too! :)


We are being sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp with a choice of either a House Mouse, a Gruffie or a Happy Hoppper stamp for the lucky winner.


I decided to do a   step card with a central step,  rather than a side step.  I use the image Count Mouse and have to admit this is my one and only Mousie Halloween stamp - must remedy this for next year!!  
The  Haunted House image is from Make-it -Crafty and you can find it HERE . The images are coloured with Copics and my first mistake came when I cut out Count Mouse (I always want to call Bat Mouse) - he then disappeared into the background, hmm.........after much playing around I found the best solution was to mount him on  a nestie cut oval. This is not ideal and I would tackle the project differently nex time.


This is a sideways view showing the bow and pumpkin charm - the bats are from the hAnglar Halloween set and the paper a download.


This is the other side with the word BOO in black sparkly letters - I know - you can't tell!!!

And here is a close up of Count Mouse - I placed the pumpkin in his hand one I had cut them out and I coloured Maxwell's body with a top coat of green to give him a slightly more eerie look - you can just about see it.

Do check out the other DT's creations - they are fabulous and you'l be both amazed and amused!!!!


EDITED
Gosh - I'm so excited having a new computer to work on I forgot to add the other challenges this card fits - I'm sure there were more but these are the ones I could remember.

A Spoonful of Sugar - BOO!!

His fur looks as if he's had a fright it's so spiky - love your colouring of him & I had to chuckle for you sound like me when I'm trying to do something really simple & straightforward, I'm sure these images have a life of their own once we start colouring & they are secretly whispering to the cardstock or whatever that it wants a different colour........
