Eeek! Goblins!

They're everywhere, those pesky goblins!
Don't chase them out of your house with a broom, they will only bring their friends!

I made this set of Goblin plaques with a lot of fun stuff from Alpha Stamps. I designed each piece with a little block glued on to the back of each one, painted the backs black so they would all look cohesive and sort of disappear.
The block is there for two is to be support for a flat piece, but the other is so that you can stack and change the pieces into lots of different configurations.

Like this.....
Or not stack at all.

I used a 12x12 piece of chipboard for the house shapes. (I drew templates on graph paper, then cut them out and traced around them on the chipboard)
And lots of Dresden trim. I love that stuff!

 I cut out the wee goblins from the Goblin Labels Collage Sheet colored them with Copic markers and used foam tape to adhere them. The foam tape also gave some dimension to the little buggers.

Stacking the house shapes gave the pieces a little excitement with the varied papers and trim.
Goblins do not like spiders.
Maybe we can make a deal......I'll get rid of the spiders and they can clean my kitchen for me.
