Wicked Halloween

It's a new challenge over at Pile It Up Challenge Blog today!! 
This week our challenge is 'The Witching Hour/Halloween'. 

We are sponsored by Digital Delights. They are offering our winner a $5 gift certificate. 

Digital Delights also has a challenge blog and you can find it HERE

I used their image Frankie's Bride. I colored her up with Prismacolor pencils. I didn't quite know what to do with her hair (I've never colored curly hair before), so I just circled my pencil around to color the area and that gave me an okay effect. I'll need to work on my curly hair coloring skills for the future. I also have never colored skin green before. Will have to practice that as well. :) 

I used Shapeabilities Labels 8 dies and Stmapin' Up's Basic Gray for my matting. The designer paper is 'Halloween Parade' from Doodlebug Designs. Such cute paper!! 

The twine is from Terri's stash. The pumpkin charm is from my 'Halloween' charm set in my Zibbet shop and you can see it HERE.

On the inside, I used some scraps to decorate. The black panel will make it extra fun for my kids to write with my white gel pen. :)

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
