Wickedly "Bliss"ful

Since today is Thursday, Terra and I have decided to coordinate our projects to offer you a challenge. Today's challenge is GLITTER! You can make anything you want as long as you use glitter on your project somewhere!!! Remember when you participate in our challenges on Monday's and Thursday's, you get more entires into the drawing for the blog candy!

The card I made today has a little twist on this beautiful pin-up called Bliss from Victoria Case and colored her with Prismacolor pencils. I thought why not make her a little wicked...so I did. I used the spooky skyline wheel from SU in the background. Also I wanted her to be completly different so I used red and black instead of the more traditional Halloween colors. The skyline was stamped with SU craft ink, black, and then while still wet I put ultra fine glitter from Michaels over it. The moon was punched out on white cardstock, lightly colored with gray, then Diamond and Black Stickles were added. Black stickles was also used on the skyline in a few places and also in her hair.

While I was coloring her I kept thinking of different ways to do the background of the card and then thought why not make it look like she was just sitting on the ground after having a little snack with the spooky skyline behind her with a big full moon, and ummmmm OOOPPPPSSSS is that a little trickle of blood remaining from her snack...oh well it's a good thing she is wearing "blood" red anyway!!!
