I've been in a year long swap with Stampin D'Amour for ATC's (Artist Trading Cards). The hostess selects a few categories each month for inspiration. This month's categories were: Halloween/Fall/Outdoors/Owls. I'm sure it's no surprise which theme I picked...
Long ago, I purchased a set of CDs with vintages images. And recently I found this great image of the lady with the curl. Not only did she have that great curl but she's wearing a zig-zag collar. It said "Halloween" to me. The first time I printed the image it came out purple. Even after I edited the photo to adjust the color she came out purple. So, I thought "why not", she can be purple for Halloween. But I did use red and black glitter pens "to do" her make-up. WICKED was originally stamped on a "ticket" but was too big for the collage so I cut it down. And finally, to finish her I used my new Martha Stewart mouse border punch. I love that the one mouse is on its hind legs look at her. True devotion!
