A Twinchie for Halloween

Hello everyone, this is a quick post.

I'm participating in the "Show us your Spooky Stuff"  Halloween Challenge at Show us your Twinchies Challenge Blog.  This could be my only Halloween Creation this year.   I enjoy looking at Halloween cards and designs, but I only own one Halloween stamp which was too large to use on a 2 inch by 2 inch Twinchie.

I have a little funky house stamp, one of the free ones with Craft Stampers magazine.  I decided to try to make it into a 'haunted house'.


This is a simple Twinchie.  I used Pan Pastels for the background and coloured the house with 'halloween' colours using Prisma Pencils.    I doodled in a few bats and a funny-looking ghost.   

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween !
Shirley

Great use of a non spooky stamp, fun twinchie.

What a great way to use that little stamp Shirley - you are so clever. I also have that freebie from Craft Stamper, but I have never used it. Now that I think about it, I guess all those little CS stamps would be ideal for Twinchies wouldn't they. (Maybe someone else has already thought of that)?! Your twinchie is fabulous by the way - love the moon!
Hugs, Sylvia xx

Oh Shirley, your cute card reminded me of what I can do with all those tiny ornaments that I stamped and punched out!
