πŸ’€ Spooky Vampire Balleigh Monster πŸ’€
card by Leigh
My Day 17 of 31 Days of Halloween Hop inspiration for you today is a spooky scene featuring the fangtastic Vampire Balleigh Monster set from my SPOOKtember 2020 releaseπŸŽƒ

Vampire Balleigh Monster is out on the prowl with his Jack o' Lantern looking for foolish mortals to invite him in and give him candyπŸŽƒ 
Uho....he’s found a spooky house he likes, I hope no one is home!

OH NO!  The lights just came on, someone is home.....eeeeek!!  Don’t invite the vampire in!!!!!!
 But they’re doomed coz look at this cutie, he’s totally rocking the vampire charm...no one can resist that adorable lil monster face and his Jack o’ lantern! 

I coloured Vampire Balleigh Monster and his Jack o’ Lantern with Copics and fussy cut them out.  The spooky haunted mansion is a Silhouette Design Store cut file by Erin Doran.  I cut it out twice from heavy weight black cardstock to glue together for a chunkier feel and applied Spectrum Noir Gold Inca wax to the outer edges of the one I used as a base to create a touch of gold shadow beneath the top one.  For the wonderful creepy background I used a sheet of Tim’s Abandoned paper and cut out holes to correspond with the house windows then pounced Spectrum Noir Midas Gold pigment ink to the edges of the panel.  I put yellow cellophane behind all the windows of the spooky house scene and then adhered it to the panel.  I had some grass border left over from my Poe Gnome hex house and added gold ink to the edges and then mounted it to the front of the card with black foam tape.  I made a folded card from heavy weight black cardstock and cut holes in the front to allow light to shine through the cellophane windows.  A tea light placed inside the card makes the windows light up at night for spooky ambience.  I then added my lil monster and his pumpkin to the front of the card and for the finishing touch I cut out teeny tiny bat silhouettes of Grim Batleigh and decorated the sky with them and the moon that came with the house.  The spooky scene is now set and Vampire Balleigh Monster is ready to go scare the neighboursπŸŽƒ
Vampire Balleigh Monster really wants to come haunt at your house...but remember...vampires need to be invited in...do you dare?
