Over at Crafty Boots this fortnights challenge is 'home' and here is my interpretation using a journal page. As its nearing Halloween i thought i would blend the 2 together.
I started by creating the background using paint dabbers in sunset orange, raspberry and sailboat blue. I added some dimension with the harlequin stamp from Dylusions 'backgrounds' stamp set, inked with Venetian orange archival ink.
The border was created with a stamp from the 'around the edge' Dylusions stamp set, stamped in jet black archival ink and coloured with Dylusions inks, London Blue and Bubblegum Pink. The white pen is the sakura white gelly roll.

The castle is from The Octopode Factory and is called the 'Whimsical Castle'. It is coloured with Dylusions inks in the following colours:
Bubblegum Pink
Squeezed Orange
Lemon Zest
London Blue
Pure Sunshine
Postbox Red

The witch is from The Paper Shelter and is called 'Bewitched Nights'. She is coloured with Pro markers in the following colours:
Cool Grey 5 and 3
Tequila Sunrise
Tulip Yellow

The birds are from a Tim Holtz mini set i got a few years ago on QVC and the letters are from what was formerly Dimensions Fourth.

Not sure why this photo is on its side but blogger wont let me turn it around!!! Anyway The small houses are from The Octopode Factory and was free in a Craft Stamper magazine. These are again coloured with Dylusion inks. Using the same colours as above but also Crushed Grape.

The leaves are from 'around the edge' Dylusions stamp set and coloured with Squeezed Orange Dylusions inks.
Thank you for looking and i look forward to seeing your creations over at the Crafty Boots Challenge.
