Something Spookay

Both the Stampotique challenge and Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge ask us to create something spooky, Stampotique with the theme SPOOKY, CREEPY, CRAWLY and Simon Says Stamp & Show SOMETHING SPOOKAY.  I thought I would have a better go today as I have only entered a tag for SSSS so tried to create something in a little more detail.
I have created a spooky house, using an old bird house I had lying around.  The house is painted with black acrylic paint and sprayed with Altered Originals Spray, burnt orange.  The roof has been decorated with the skull from Stampotique and branches from the garden have been added to add to the spooky feel.
I have also added a few autumnal leaves from the garden.
I did want to add a real spiders web from the garden, however, I could not find one anywhere, typical just when you want one.   Think I will add this to my Halloween table this weekend.  Enjoy your day, Tracy x x

You are so creative, Tracy! Honestly, I have an old bird house too and never would have thought to use it like that. I absolutely love the roof with the skulls, but actually everything about it is wonderfully spooky. You rocked our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Thanks for being a regular!
