Hello my friends. I hope everyone is enjoying their week. Only one more day til the weekend. Our weekend is full again. My BIL is getting married on Saturday and my hubby is the Best Man, so we not only have the wedding on Saturday, we have the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner tomorrow. My husband still hasn't written his speech. He better get going.
Today's card is a practice run for the whole month of October. Many of you have already seen the badge and list of blogs on the right side of my blog for the Halloween Blog Hop for Smeared and Smudged. I don't make alot of "dark" cards so I thought I would practice one for Haunted Design House's challenge this week. The challenge is to choose and image that represents what you would be for Halloween if you had the right body, right hair, right clothes, etc. Well, if I had all those things, I would definitely be a Kenny K image. LOL. Those are some sexy chicks. So, for my card I choose "Hella Enchanted" and here she is:
I colored her with colored pencils and OMS then trimmed down the image. I inked it heavily with DI Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Black Soot inks. I matted her on Black card stock from Recollections and added four antique brass brads. I used three different patterned papers (Recollections, Theresa Collins and DCWV) to create the background. All of them are matted on Hearthrob Red card stock from The Paper Studio. The card base is Black Recollections and is 6"x6". I added three black roses from Michael's and two black card stock flourishes as my embellishments. I wonder how much candy I could get if I dressed like this?? LOL.
Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to. Have a wonderful evening and God bless y'all.
