Challenge 3 - Halloween Theme

If you're looking for the winners of challenge 2 - then read on down to the bottom of the post - we wanted to get straight into the challenge this time around.  There is no sketch or colour combo to follow this fortnight - just a theme - and as it's getting close to Halloween we thought we'd give you the chance to pull out all your spooky sets.


There are some Waltzingmouse Sets which are totally Halloween themed including all the lovely new release from last month All Hallows Eve, Vintage Witch, The Count and Spooky Tree  as well as the older sets Halloween Party; Cicely or Gracie at Halloween; Wanda's Pantry; Midnight Feast and Hocus Pocus  but if you don't have the full-on Halloween sets then you can get creative and look at other sets which include Halloween sentiments such as Say it Loud Winter Holiday  or even use this cute little bat poop poem Clare has in the freebies section of the store if you're really stuck.

You don't have to make a card - gifts and treat bags are particularly apt for this time of year so this could be your opportunity to get a head start on the Halloween candy preparations ;-)

Here's a little inspiration from the two of us to get you in the witching mood.....

Now it's over to you - you have until 5pm GMT on Thursday 17th October to play along so hopefully plenty of time to bring out your ghoolish side!   We'll reveal the winners along with the new challenge at 8am on Saturday 19th October.

Cards without Waltzingmouse products are not eligible for this challenge

And now back to the matter of our winners from our first ever Colour Challenge - it seems you found the colours a little harder than the sketch as we didn't have quite as many entrants but we still got some stunning cards and our favourite was No 10 (it seems going last is quite lucky around here!)  Congrats Claire - head on over to the winners tab to collect your No 1 Fan badge ;-)

No 1 Fan - Claire A

Fanatics Top 3
No 1 - Lori - we loved the bold use of the colours and strong graphic design.
No 2 - Charmaine - we loved the unusal take on the colours and the fun theme
No 8 - Grá - we loved the fun use of the circles and the on-trend gold highlights.

Congratualtions ladies - thanks for making judging so difficult!   Hop on over to the winners tabs to collect your Top 3 badges.  We hope you'll all be getting spooky with us again this time around ;-)
