Halloween Hangover

Beware of the Mummy!

Well I am slowly beginning to catch up with everything even though I have taken another down turn with the asthma and seem to have developed a cold on top of everything else!!  So whilst I have been feeling a touch better I decided I should do at least one challenge card.  I seem nto have backed off of entering challenges at the moment but I think that is purely the time of year.  I must get back on track!!

Anyway...... this card is for the 12 months of halloween challenge at Simply B Stamps.  The instructions
for this were to use only black and white with one other 'halloween' red, orange, lime green or purple.

Here is my card.....

It may not be very 'Halloweeny' but sometimes seeing me first thing in the morning is far worse than any frights you would get from even the scariest of horror films!! 
It has even been joked that I would scare anything away!
So that is why I chose to do this.......  Plus I was just itching to colour the new Betty images!

The image is 'Morning Betty' from the limited digi release at SBS.  If you were unlucky enough to miss this special then she will be available from April in rubber only.
I have coloured her using my cool grey range of promarkers and also my new prisma pencils.
She had to have a hint of the blood shot eye, and I think the red distressed background helps to pick that out.

I would love to read what you think of her.
