It's that time of year again...

Yes, it's Halloween time! Well, not quite, but in the world of trading ATCs it is because these ones are being posted then I should be getting three back in time for Halloween. These are for a Haunted House swap, the theme being Halloween, and the ATC itself had to be house shaped.
You may have read in a previous post that I won a competition on Dyan's blog using an image from Lisa's Altered Art. The lovely Patty of Lisas' Altered Art sent me five downloads as part of my prize including some of these beauties here. Love these extra large butterfly wings :-)
And here they are all together:

For the first time in ages I used my distress inks. I always reach for acrylic paints but I fancied a change. I love the brightness you an achieve with distress inks.
Off to work and then my daughter is having a birthday sleepover (*groan*!) I think they should be called 'messabout-overs' because there'll be very little sleep in this house tonight!
Bye for now
