Colonel Mustard in the hall with a dagger.

I've got my first cold of the sniffles season, so I've spent today feeling sorry for myself. Amazingly I've felt quite creative, lots of ideas buzzing around my brain. That must be why I can't remember anything useful.....

....aaaaaanyway, I digress. You don't want to hear about my cough quality, you want to see something arty, right? Well, I decided to have a go at my first Fat Page today. What's a Fat Page?, I hear you cry. Well, it's not a chubby child in velvet breeches.......

It's a 4x4 inch square with a bit of a border on the left hand side to allow them to be bound together with rings or whatever to make a little book. This is for a swap on docrafts and the theme was Halloween or black and orange. Being greedy I went for both!!!

I like my moon- I punched a circle and inked round it with orange and black in, then used the aperture to ink an orange half moon in. The branches are stamped over the top.

I like my bits of Cluedo answer sheets best though. One of my "saved from the bin" finds......

The raven on the fence is from an Ippity stamp set I picked up for a song recently. The background faces are Stampotique and the bare branches are Stampin' Up. The background is sprayed with Dylusions inks.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

The Artistic Stamper- Autumn colours
Happy Daze- Halloween (I used Pumpkin Stazon, Versamark embossing pad, Black Versafine, all availble in Happy Daze shop)
Crafty Cardmakers- Anything goes
