Halloween frame card...

Hi, guys!  I decided to have a play and create something for the Craft Us Crazy Challenge blog - the theme this fortnight being Halloween and/or anything goes and this is what I came up with...

...I decided to make a Halloween wall hanging using one of the box frames that you can find on my tutorials page and the October digistamp sheet from A Year in Cards CD-Rom.  I coloured the front of the frame with Dusty Concord DI and Black Tuxedo Memento, then rubbed on some Versamark around the edges and brushed with black Mica powder...
...I used the October dotty paper as a backing for the frame and then added 4 Parisian Accents border strips around the edges - I used the waste from the border strips to create the points on the wrought iron fence!  I used Stromy Sky and Dusty Concord Distress inks to ink the moon scene and added a large black glittered bat to the frame...
...I coloured Frankie with my Promarkers and gave him a few glitter highlights, the colours used were :
Skin : Moss, Khaki, Pastel Beige,
Top : Slate, Purple, Amethyst, Orchid, Lavender, Olive, Pear and Lime Green
Trousers : Walnut, Cinnamon, Spice, Honeycomb
Shoes and Hair : Black, Cool Grey 5, 4, 3, 1 (because I've lost my number 2!)
I mounted the image onto Black card using foam pads and cut around, leaving a border, to make the image pop more.   I added a purple polka dot ribbon hanging loop and 4 MFT corner die cuts to finish.
I can't believe that it is October already, time really is flying by! Thanks for droppping by to see me and I hope you like my little project!  Lisa x
