Good evening fellow bloggers,
First I'd like to say hi to PatK, my new follower. Welcome Pat.
Well, I've been playing (faffing) again. Nearly all the challenge blogs are doing 'Halloween' as the chosen theme, so I thought I'd do something a little different.
I've had this kit for a while but never got round to using it. It's called 'Elmhurst Hollow' and it's from SVGCuts.com. It's an SVG file to use with my cricut, along with the sure-cuts-a-lot software.
So here it is. Isn't it cool. This picture is taken with the flash, to show the detail.
This one is without, so that the lights show up through the windows. Bit more atmospheric, don't ya think? I used core'dinations card in black and grey for the main body of the haunted house, the chimney and rails. Five 12x12 sheets in all, so not expensive to make.
The backing papers for the roof and plank detail are from craftartist and printed onto 220gsm supersmooth card. The bats are made from two identical pieces with a piece of wire sandwiched in the middle, then glittered before being suspended from the roof. The cobweb on the front of the house was drawn on with a quickie glue pen, then dusted with glamour dust.
Behind all the windows and eyes is yellow vellum. Unfortunately the eyes don't show up very well in the photo, but in the dark they look great.
To the rear of the house are the openings to place the candles, not real ones of course. These candles came from a local discount shop and were £1-99 for four. Can't grumble at that, eh? They even blow out!!!!!
Anyway, hope you like it, I LOVE it. Showed it to my sis and she wants one now.
