BOO and a matchbook

More Halloween decorations....

I made these BOO canvases to put them on my mantel, I think it looks great.
I used the back of the canvas and painted it orange, the letters are Cricut Plantin Schoolbook and the cool halloween digi' are Rick St. Dennis' . I used pencils to colour them in my fav. halloween colours , orange, purple and green,and cut them out. The letters where matted on black cardstock and the digi's where put inside the letters.
The roses are Marianne Design and the flowers and flourishes are Tim Holtz Alterations.
Here come some close up pikkies
This nice little bat is called Batcula the funny snail is also from Rick St. Dennis.
This pretty lady is called Wacky Witch.
And this cutie is Evil Jack


I will enter  this in the Hanted Design House challenge Macabre Monday HDH150 "Oh My Gourd!!!"
(see the little pumpkins in the corners).

A few weeks ago  I participated in a matchbook swap and I received a steampunk matchbook (and some awesome flowers, a piece of lace and a domino keychain) from Helen  (she makes beautiful art, go check her blog), I  haven't shown it to you yet because I was on holiday, but here are the pics finally:

 Thanks Helen I love it all!!!!!
