The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge prepares for Halloween

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Firstly I would like to apologise for the lack of posts and creations from myself recently, the new job role, is very demanding and it is taking me a little while to get into the swing of it, but I am relishing the challenge.

With that in mind, the new challenge at the

is on, and I chose the theme this week, which is


Here is what I created for my inspirational piece
Now the inspiration for this card totally revolved around the fabulous Tickled Pink Digital Image called " Lil Haunts Vampire Lilith" and wow is she fabulous to colour.  
The base colour and contrast on this card is black pearlescent.  The papers are freebies from assorted places around the world wide web, sorry forgot to take the page details for you all and thank you to those that created them.  I used my MS corner punch on each of the corners and the edge punch along the edge of the green panel.  The Oval die and Oval Scallop die are the smaller ones from the Grand Nesties.  The flowers are from a variety of places some Prima, Wild Orchid and a local department store.  The pearls were air brushed with copics to match.  The flowers have a little platinum stickles on them and the cheesecloth on the left has been airbrushed with the lime green and the wire ribbon has been airbrushed in the orange, thought both gave a web feel to the creation. The sentiment I created myself using my photo package and the amazing brush sets within it.
The flowers pick up the colours used on the card
A silver pumpkin charm has been coloured in purple copics
This is the close up of the wire ribbon airbrushed and shaped to look like a web.
The image has been coloured in copics with a little airbrushing for the background and the over stamping to make her look as if she is in a creepy place.  A white gel pen has been used to add extra highlights.

I love this creation and although I don't normally do Halloween, will most definitely be creating with her again.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and thank you along with all my regulars for all your lovely comments, which makes blog land such a lovely place.

I will be back later on today with the winner of my candy, and yes I know I must go shopping, as so many people have noticed that I went over the 500 mark which means "more candy to follow"
