Canadian Online Swarm ~ challenge 4 of 4

I'm so far behind I could be starting to circle...  Well, life does this, I've been sick for about a month and am slowly getting on my feet again.  Sept 30th I started an online Canadian Swarm in the Canadian Chat on the Cricut Circle message-board.  The only real thing Canadian about it is that members have to visit the Canadian Chat to see what has been posted.  I had big plans to have examples all ready to show, nope, cough cough cough, life got in the way.  I'll be posting what I finally made while showing what the challenges were.  Completely backwards from how I'd planned, but oh well, that's life.

Monday Oct 3 2011. Challenge for Canadian Circle Online Swarm 
Create a 3D haunted house: 
It can be spooky or cute, but not autumn or Thanksgiving. 
Use any bag you like as long as it can stand on its own.  
It must be embellished with cricut cuts, stamps, etc however you like. This could be a luminary, a gift bag, an ornament, part of a Halloween village…

My entry is very basic, I had lots of ideas but very little energy so here is one entry I completed.  
 I used the little tote bag from "wrap it up" cartridge, cut "fit to page" which is 9.5"  I somehow folded it up wrong side out, but you can't see that until you're really looking so I will just proudly ignore that detail, LOL!  I "cut" the matching pumpkin layer first with a cricut red marker to outline, then with the blade to cut.  I rough trimmed a scrap of yellow vellum to put under the face and used foam dots to raise the layer up so it looks like its glowing.  I finally used some "goosebumps clear texture spray" from my stash just begging to be used.  The picture below shows the pebbly texture it gives to the face.  Unfortunately it warps vellum, and despite masking off the background I got a bit on the bag above the stem. Oh well.  I tried.
It will make a cute candy treat bag for an unsuspecting neighbor soon enough...
