MACABRE MONDAYS

Happy monday.... my girls go back to school today...YAY..... they have been ready since 6.30am and cant wait to go.
Macabre mondays have a new challenge today and its not cute or pink.... its ELEGANTLY EVIL, and ever since i saw this beautiful vamp image from TERI at DELICIOUS DOODLES http://deliciousdoodles.blogspot.com/ I'd wanted her and this seemed the perfect challenge.
Unusually for me i coloured her with promarkers in 5 shades of grey and 2 of red.
I stamped and inked my background, masked my moon then coloured it with poppy promarker.
I cut out my vamp and stuck her to the background, leaving some of her hair loose. I then inked the edges to give deep shadow around her.
I used wide red ribbon with a thinner back one tied over the top.
I am not known for being ELEGANT.... but i think this is pretty close especially for me.
Please come and join us this week.... we really do love seeing everyones creepy creations.
Thanks for visiting me today.
love lynx
