Day 14 of 31 with WW and Alicia Bell

Greetings and welcome to Day 14 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. It's Wednesday, so I have a new Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge to share with you. This week, we are sponsored by Alicia Bell and the theme is, "Witches, Bats, and/or Black Cats." I used Alicia's Berta Barton digi.

So allow me to discuss the elephant in the room first. Yup, I jacked up her face at the very last moment. Literally. Just as I was gluing her down. That blasted black line across her face by her mouth. It made me...well...batty. I snapped a couple quick pictures...and then I tried to fix it. Bad, bad idea. I am going to have to preform some serious coloring surgery on her....but frankly, it doesn't look good. But enough about that.

I colored her with my Tombow watercolor markers, direct to paper. Then I fussy cut her out For my background, I spritzed an orange Memories Mist and a yellow Dylusions spray. Then, I added some wonderful bats from the Stampendous Spooky House set. I love how her hair came out...and coincidentally, my hair (or at least the front), is currently Emerald Green right now too. Now please head off to the Wicked Wednesday blog, and then visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a terror-ific day!

I must be missing the elephant. She's gorgeous! I don't see any problem with her face at all. Fabulous colors. Love YOUR hair, too. xxD

I can't see the botched face she looks hauntingly good to me - fab tag x

That green hair is stunning and love the bats all around

She is so perfect in many other ways so she needed something to be "different" about her. Great idea to give her face some dimension.
Wicked cool batty ATC, she's adorable!
Another wonderful ATC! Love this image and your coloring of her is perfect. I'm with Donna--I don't see any problem with her face.

Looks pretty good to me! Fab image and colouring! Love the bats too...
Mary Holshouser said…
The line doesn't look bad. Add a little one to the other side or add some "stitches"
We are our own worst critics.
thanks for sharing.

To be honest the line looks like a part of the image, if you had not mentioned it I don't think we would have known! Love your coloring and the vibrant background! AWESOME ATC! Thanks for sharing!!!
