I've got a couple of days holiday this week from work, yippee. While OH out at work I get to craft all day. You can't blame me for being happy at that, can you?
I had to do something for Macabre Mondays in amongst every thing else. "I Was Framed" is this weeks theme. Now I just so happened to pick up some great frames a couple of months ago in a sale. Bargain at 70% off! This is what came to be..

The frame was covered in the foam underlay used before laying laminate that I had coloured with alcohol inks and paint. I think it gives a good impression of stone. An archway cut out behind which is a paper from echo park. The little portcullis is made from twisted wire.

I used the Kitty Witch image from Delicious Doodles also bits of the Halloween Border. The witch herself was coloured with promarkers then decoupaged to give more depth.
then mounted with a pile of sticky pads behind her onto the frame.
. The little bats (recieved in a RAK, Thanks Terry) have a kitty face and looked like they were made for this.
The fence is made using an MS punch, as is the dripping slime although this had an extra of black and green paint allowed to drip down it.

I am entering this into the challenge
