The Nights Are Drawing In at HDH

OOOps!  Spent yesterday on the return trip from Santa Fe and still recovering, so I'm a day late at posting my project for the new challenge at HDH.  As the days are getting shorter we dungeon dwellers are thrilled that The Nights Are Drawing In.  Feel free to interpret this theme in any way you like, as long as it's creepy rather than cutesy.  I've been tripping over this piece of kraft DP with the flocked haunted house from the MME Haunted Collection since last Halloween and thought it just might work for this project, with a bit of distressing with scissors on the edges and some inking with Black Soot.  Not sure what would be worse, staying out as darkness descends, or risk going inside.  If you dared knocked on the door, who would answer?

My inspiration came from the fab Monster In My Closet from Delicious Doodles. Would this be the welcoming hand you'd see beckoning you in?  EEEeek!!!!

I printed the image 4 times on kraft and fussy cut and popped the appropriate parts.  With all that fabulous shading, no coloring needed, except a bit of blood red dripping from his mouth. The sentiment was done with word stickers from the Enchanted Collection from Authentique, and to answer that question....... ...YES!!!!!  BE sure to pop by HDH for further inspiration and do come play along.
