Things that Go Bump in the Night at WoodwareWitterings and CCM

Morning Everyone
I'm first up today with my post for WoodwareWitterings who are sponsoring the new challenge over at CCM, Things that Go Bump in the Night.
I have gone for a rather cute image from an old Woodware stamp set FRCL203 Spooky Tots.
The background was created using Alcohol inks, acetate and a resist technique using Archival ink that I was teaching in class on Saturday.
Add alcohol inks to a piece of acetate using a felt applicator and leave to dry for a few moments.
Stamp your chosen image (CRR149 Autumn Words) on to the inked side of the acetate using Archival ink. Using a piece of clean cloth, or kitchen paper wipe away the ink. Don't wait too long to do this as once Archival ink dries it is permanent. It MUST be an archival ink for this technique to work. 
I stamped a few bats onto my background panel and the row of pumpkins from SSC1023 Damask Fall along the bottom of a square white card before adding my acetate panel.
The easiest way to stick this down is with a little glossy accents around the edge of the panel, as I did here, or by attaching it to a piece of double sided stick sheet.
I coloured my cute witch with dye based inks, fussy cut her out and then added her using silicon.
I hope that you will join us this week at WoodwareWitterings to see what the rest of the team come up with, and at CCM where our challenge runs for the next two weeks.
Happy Crafting and hugs
