Make It Colourful Monthly Challenge - Spooky Sky

As I mentioned in my post yesterday over in the Make It Colourful Gallery we have started holding monthly challenges.For the month of October we are asking you to create a "Spooky Sky" - check it out HERE. I decided to use the pumpkin head from Make It Crafty's Mini Headless Horseman and pop it in place of the moon in my scene. Then came the fun part - playing with lots of eerie cool greys and then a pop of colour glowing out of his eyes and mouth - as if there was a candle on inside. I used my wonky squares to cut out my background and added a raffia bow with a bat cut-out on the top - and then popped on some orange stickles to make his eyes glow too!

To colour the background I used ideas I learnt from doing the sunset but using darker colours, I also added some white ink mist - though it hasn't shown up the best in my photo.

Along came Make It Crafty's Mini Frankenstein for some added fun.
