Happy Hauntings!



Getting ready for happy hauntings?  This image from the Queen Kat Designs Store is sheer terror-ific perfection!  The stamp by Kathy Cyr is called Dead Inside Fairy.

It was fun to work with this image.  On one side it is a lovely fairy and the other half is a tattered skeleton fairy.  It would be a great image for Halloween, a friend who has been ill and is now feeling better, and anyone going through dramatic changes in their life.  I colored the image with colored pencils, cut it close to it's true boarders and inked the edges with wisteria ink.  I think the ink helps bring the sides together and pop it from the back ground paper.  I added two skeleton leaves and jute twine for a bow.  The sentiment, in this example reads, beware frightful skeleton.

Have a hauntingly fabulous Saturday, everyone.
