Day 2 of 31: Bombshell's October Pin-Up Challenge

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today, I am sharing the Bombshell Stamps' October Pinup Challenge. Sharon Rogers, has set this month's challenge to create a Halloween project using black, orange, purple, and lime green.

I used Halloween Costume for Bombshell Angel and the bats from Holiday Accessory for my card. I'd like to point out that the green background paper does actually have that fade from dark to light. That wasn't my lighting being weird or anything.

I colored my Bombshell with colored pencils. I don't get to use my pencils too often, so it was really nice to bust 'em out.

I didn't do a whole lot to this card, as I loved the green paper's print. I didn't want to hide too much of it. This is an easy challenge for you to play along with, especially you Wicked Bloggers that have some Bombshells and not all of your projects complete. So play along! You could win a new set of stamps! Be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog, as well as the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, located in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!
