Ciao a tutti! Come sempre qui con una nuova sfida! Halloween è vicinissimo e SIMON SAYS STAMP MONDAY CHALLENGE BLOG non poteva certo pensare ad altro argomento! MONSTER MASH è il tema per questa settimana! Aspettiamo di essere spaventati da voi!

With Halloween fast approaching it’s time to think of all things spooky and ghoulish, or you could have a huge monster of a project that you would like to finish, whatever you make for this challenge we will be looking forward to seeing your creations while peeking from behind the safety of the door ;-)

Quest'anno mi sono innamorata delle nuove fustelle di Halloween e non riesco a smettere di creare per questa festa!
Ho scelto la casetta del villaggio natalizio di Tim Holtz e l'ho trasformata in una spaventosa casa dei fantasmi!

I'm totally in love with new dies for Halloween and this year I can't stop to create spooky things!
I turned the new Village dwelling die by Tim holtz  into  a scary haunted house!

Per la struttura della casa ho usato il cartone ondulato . Ho colorato prima con Distress paint Black Soot e poi ho completato con Distress ink pad Ground Espresso! Così è davvero cupa !!!!
Il tetto l'ho preparato con cartoncino Kraft , semplicemente stropicciato tra le mani e poi colorato con Distress  ink pad Rusty Hinge e con  molta leggerezza ho usato anche il black soot per evidenziare le pieghe che ho creato con le mani!
Eccovi i particolari!

For my house I used corrugated cardboard covered with Black soot and Ground Espresso distress paint and ink pad! Now it's really scary!!!
I created the roof with Ranger Kraft cardstock. I cut my piece of cardstock and I have  crumpled it with hands. After this, I colored the roof with  Rusty hinge  and Hickory smoke Distress ink pads.

L'alberello è stato spruzzato con Distress spray Spiced Marmalade.
I  misted  the tree with Spiced marmalade Distress stain spray.

Per il gatto e per le zucche ho usato l'idea di Anna -Karin (Layers of ink)    per ridurre le dimensioni usando la shrink plastic! Grazie Anna-Karin!

I used the idea of Anna -Karin (Layers of ink
) to reduce  size of my cat and my  pumpkin using shrink plastic! Thanks Anna-Karin for your wonderful tutorial!

Ho curato tutti i particolari : dietro le finestre ho messo  una "tenda"  fatta con garza colorata con Hickory smoke.

I love  to take care of the details of my works  and also my  windows are in themed | Halloween!

Ammetto che la fustella dei fantasmi mi piace proprio tanto! L'ho tagliata su Grungeboard paper e poi ho colorato con Distress paint Picket fence e sporcando ai bordi con Hickory smoke!
Spero che la mia spaventosa casa vi sia piaciuta!!!

I must admit that I like so much new Ghosts die!! I cut it on grungeboard paper and then I colored with  Picket fence Distress paint and I highlighted the edges with Hickory smoke!
I hope you enjoyed my scary house !!!

How funny that we both made haunted houses this week with this die! It was so entertaining to see how differently our houses came out. I love, love, LOVE yours and all the clever details you included. The house's texture is amazing and I adore how you gave the ghosts such a great sense of movement. Excellent job!

I just love visiting your blog and I have had such fun catching up with it since I got back. You just make everything look so easy and I want to try them all. We don't celebrate Halloween here but I do love all the decor things. I think it is time to start a new tradition for my grandies.
