Trick or Treat us at Tellen's Place

OK you ladies (and gents) out there. Halloween is nearly upon us and over at Tellen's Place we want to see your Trick or Treat projects. To help you along, Terry has kindly provided a FREEBIE, so get on over there, make something that is trick or treat themed and post it to your blog or photo caching site and tell us about it. The rest of the divas have been slogging away over a hot craft table to bring you some great cards using some more of the great new releases drawn by our resident artist Marcus. They're fab.
For my project, Terry presented me with CATVAMP and DR.JEKYL to play with. Here's what appeared .....

CatVamp was decoupaged in 3 layers to help give some dimension over the haunted house. The main image was coloured using promarkers and the moon just painted with some silver paint, a light dusting of which was added to the cloud as well.
Dr.Jekyl was again coloured with PMs with a generous dollop of glossy accents on the blood to make it more realistic. The sentiment was computer generated by me onto cream textured card, given a little distress treatment with first black ink then orange with a final touch of red to the edges. The BP consists of some navy DCWV, distressed with black ink and 2 strips of hand made paper. All then stuck to some aubergine card stock.
Now you've seen this - get on over to Tellen's Place and take a look at the other Divas fantastic creations.

I am entering this into the Stamp Insanity challenge #30 - Trick or Treat challenge
