Something Wicked This Way Comes…..

Apart from Fall, Halloween is also one of my favorite times of year. Might be because of my twisted mind that I love all things spooky….Horror books and movies and most of all Oct. 31.

Halloween wasn’t celebrated here in Denmark some years ago, but it has slowly been creeping up upon us and yay for that 😀 Love it. In my house we start decorating by the end of September or in the beginning of October and have the decor up until after my eldest son’s Birthday in the beginning of November. Then we decorate for Christmas and when that is over (mostly before or just after New Years Eve), we take down the Christmas decor and bring back the Halloween decor for my youngest son’s Birthday in mid January….PHEWWWW.

OK! So I’m always happy when a new Halloween bundle is released and thrilled when Dreaming Tree released the Monster Bash SVG Bundle. One of my favorites is the Skull Candle Holder :

I wanted my version to be a bit more sinister than Rons colorful version so I skipped the teal color and used LOTS of black AC cardstock along with POW glitter paper in grape, AC glitter paper in white, green vellum and a sheet of Graphic 45 paper “The Magic of Oz” with some great spider web on it. Unfortunately I’m not able to get the great life-like moving flame candle that Leo used but I had some color changing lights that I used instead and it works perfectly. I also embossed the panel on the bottom piece with a spider web embossing folder from Sizzix and inked the whole thing with a light grey ink pad from Prima. Isn’t it just awesome???

Here are some more pictures of the Candle Holder:

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave a small comment ❤
