PaperCraftJunkies Halloween Challenge

PaperCraftJunkies are holding their second challenge over at the PaperCraftJunkies Challenge Blog. This one runs until the end of the month, which, as you probably know, is Halloween. So, our theme this time is "Halloween" of course!
There will be two winners for the challenge, one for using a PCJ digi and one for using any other image, there will also be a badge for three runners-up to put on their blogs. The prizes will be a digi of the winners' choice. Don't forget that it doesn't have to be a card you enter, it can be any crafty make as long as it follows the theme.
Here is my DT card as some inspiration for you.....


I covered an 8"x8" card blank with black card and matted a pumpkin backing paper I'd printed from Joanna Sheen's Cardmaker's Year CD. Before sticking the paper down, I wrapped a length of  "spider's web" down one side that I'd coloured black.

For the main image I cropped and printed a beach hut digi which I recoloured in MCS. I cut it out and coloured a night sky background with Polychromos. I printed a cute little monster and a "scaredy cat", both of which I coloured with Promarkers. I placed the cat in the window and gave the monster a goody bag then added a couple of ready coloured digi trees. All the images, apart from the Trick or Treat bag, are available as coloured and outline digis from the PaperCraftJunkies website.

The pumpkins were a free download from the internet, which I coloured with Promarkers, and the sentiment was created in MCS. I then die-cut it and inked the edges in black.
Just in case you need a bit more inspiration don't forget to have a look at the range of digi images available at PaperCraftJunkies, you may even find something relevant in the Freebies section (Hint! Hint!).
It's now time to get creating yourselves, we can't wait to see what you make for "Halloween"
