Bite Me: Day 29 of 31 Days of Halloween

I’d like to start this post off by saying…it’s my 6 Year Anniversary! 6 Years ago today, I experienced one of the most magical and wonderful things of my life. Marrying my Husband Gene. I love you!!!

On to my project…I had colored this image from Stamp It Crazy some time ago…but never managed to get her mounted on a card. Finally, her day has come!


I paired her with the “Bite Me” sentiment from Smeared Ink, which I think is just perfect for her, as she looks so damn pissed off. I could write several stories around this image…hmmm…may not be a bad idea! ;}


I colored her in with colored pencils, markers and Stickles. The Bite Me was inked up with Vintage Photo and I stenciled some spider webs using my chalk. A little bit o’ drippy goodness, and I was done!


I took some inspiration from Barb at Haunted Design House…see my little dots? I got the idea from her. You can see the Stickles on her wings a bit better from this angel…You can click on any of my photos to see it bigger. I am so glad I finally got her on a card. I think she would have been really pissed if I went through the entire month of October without using her!

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, posted in my sidebar. Have an inspiring day! See you tomorrow!

Lol, yup, you definitely don't want to annoy her any more, who knows what evil schemes she could be plotting inside that gloriously macabre head? Love this one Alison, thanks so much for playing along with our Smeared and Smudged challenge at HDH this week and good luck!
