Creepy Carved Pumpkin Dwelling

Do you have the Village Dwellings die yet?
Creating a Haunted Town takes dedication and great Halloween colours!  I mentioned I would create a Carved Pumpkin House to go with my other creepy dwellings.  A couple weeks ago I created the Haunted Dwellings to scare you.  I wanted to add to my my creepy creation!
The Creepy Carved Pumpkin Dwelling.

I wanted to play with the Ranger's new Iced Enamel Relique Powder and I love them  They have gorgeous flecks of colour. 

 Note to self...when using the Bats stencils make sure the bats won't be upside down once assembled.  I was too excited to use the enamel I guess ;)


I wanted to experiment so I even used it on the Halloween Alpha parts bat, the roof and icicles from the village winter die.


Even the windows from the winter village die are enameled.


The enameled upside down bats and the enameled green roof look creepy good!


I added the ghosts die coming out from behind the house.  Inked with Hickory Smoke...BOO!  Then I coated them with glossy accents.  I dried with the heat gun but just enough to push the glossy accents around.  This makes them look like they are melting.  GROSS! 


I used some Fall Tinsel Twine like flames bursting out of the house! 


This is my first time using the Iced Enamel Relique Powders so I was experimenting.  I used them all over my Dwelling and the effect is stunning.  Ranger is new to carrying this product and I recommend getting your hands on some!


My Creepy Dwellings are growing!


Thanks for always putting up with my Halloween Creations!  I love Halloween and you all are always so lovely with your support and comments here and on all my social media!

  4. I think I could put up with your Halloween crations 365 days a year, and I believe you would create Halloween 365 days a year! You are SO prolific; I can't keep up with your posts! Just let me say they have all been looked at and drooled over by me, and NO, I don't have my Village Dwellings die yet, thank you very much!

    I would have never realized your bats were upside down on accident...I thought they were just hangin'. Love those oozy ghosts--I may just have to steal that idea, since I love heating things to see how they'll come out.

    Thank you for the heads up on the Emerald Creek Dares Halloween challenge...I'm all signed up and my fingers and eyes are crossed for a successful outcome! Shoot, I'd even like to be one of the team, but me thinks I'm gonna be a bit busy the next couple of days putting the finishing touches on our Halloween yard display, so I'll miss the deadline. I will most certainly be a shopper!

    And I love the way your mind works! Hugs!

    1. LOL...Thank you Sara for your comment! I swear I need to have you do my commenting. I am such a terrible blogger for that ;) I should have thought of saying they were "hanging" upside down. That would be been better ;)

      Thank you for always supporting me.

  5. Fabulous Nicole, love your batty roof (and bats are well known for hanging upside down so I'd say you got them exactly right!) and the ghosties are spooktacular! Love those Relique powders, got to go do some more shopping ;O) Amazing addition to your Creepy Dwellings, thanks so much for sharing it! Deb xo
