An eerie glow...

Howdy folks!

I'm back with yet another Halloween cutie that I started during a past hair coloring video. Yep, I'm still working my way through getting them off my desk and onto some cards. :)
I did make some progress with the craft room clean up yesterday but there is still a ways to go. But for now that will have to wait as it is back to work for me today.

So this card features Perfect Poison from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and even though I've had her since last Halloween, this was my first time actually inking her up... tsk, tsk! To be honest I think I was a bit intimidated by her. I didn't quite know how to approach that bubbling potion she's holding but once I thought about it I decided to treat it kinda like candle glow. So instead of yellow highlights I went with an appropriately eerie yellow green light being cast from the bottle. I gotta say, I think she turned out quite sinister looking in a quirky, cute kind of way, LOL!

Ok, well I hope that this new week is off to a great start for ya. :)
Catch ya' later!
