Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes!

I am not in card making mood right now so the theme over at Cute Card Thursday was so perfect for me this week!
Anything goes!
We are sponsored this week by Tickled Pink Stamps
 I was using my recipe book stand the other night while cooking when this idea for a Halloween spell book came to mind!  
It caught my attention that the stand was quite gothic looking and would work well!
This is going to stand at the back of our Halloween table!
 The pages are simply copy paper that I doused in watercolour paint and curled and distressed the edges.  
I created the text in Word and then printed on the already painted papers.  
I painted 6 sheets in total so each page has another 2 beneath it to give it the look of an old book.  In reality that is all it is, 6 pages but I have sat it on top of my Ken Hom chinese recipe book which was suitably black!
Once the printed word was on I stamped around using various Halloween images.
 A spook-tacular bookmark aged with crackle glaze.
 Isn't she the most adorable little witch?  I decided not to colour her in the end as I like the black and white print look.
Thanks so much for dropping by, hope you all manage to join us this week at CCT!

This is fabulous, Deb! I realy want to try and dress the house a bit for Halloween (even though it's not a big holiday here in the UK) I still take my youngest trick or treating and we get all sorts of monsters at our door, so this would be a fun and simple project to add to my list! Thanks for the inspiration and lovely comment. Lisa X
