A Little Witchy Number

Hiya folks!

Man, what a weekend!
Spent Saturday organising the teenage daughter's birthday doo. Putting up the tent in the garden took a while, not to mention shopping for goodies to eat and drink for her and three mates. They stayed in the tent overnight - too darned LOUD to stay in! Then they  had the nerve to stay up ALL NIGHT watching dvd's! So no sleep here either as the dog went crazy every time they used the bathroom - ARRGHH!

So yesterday was spent picking up the pieces and tidying up, cooking Sunday lunch, and catching up with things with a fuzzy sleep deprived head. Needless to say my make for today was rather delayed. BUT here I am now with a very simple offering for this week's Macabre Monday Challenge. The theme this time is:

"I'm melting!!!"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that has something to do with
melted wax, candles, witches, or melted flesh.
The possibilities really are endless with this one.
It's time to start tapping into your Halloween spirit,
and create something seasonally spectacular!

I went with the 'witches' part of this one, and whizzed up a quick ATC sized easel card using one of my new Halloweenie images - WitchyPoo:

 The image was coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned and printed to the right size. Then I just made a quick easel card and layered the image and Best Witches Sentiment on some orange card before adding them to the base.

(Excuse the finger in the shot, but there is a note underneath the flap that I had to conceal as it is private.)

OK, well I need to nip this in the post ASAP, so I'll be off now then! ttfn folks!

Some challenges -

Corrosive - Animal Companions
Stamptacular - Less is More
Simply Create - Anything Goes
