A Touch of Darkness at Aurora Wings

When you think of dark and creepy images, you may not
immediately think of Aurora Wings digital images.
But we're about to change that. 
Mitzi has a deceptively dark and macabre side to her 
and her wonderful artwork. It's no secret that she
currently has some beautifully dark and seductive images
available in her shop, but she is really embracing her dark side
with this new image called, 'Let Us In'

I feel pretty special to get to use this new image, but
since it is my challenge theme, and my birthday month, 
I'll just consider it a slightly early bday present.

Aren't they just too die for??!!
And they are perfect for our new challenge theme,
A Touch of Darkness. 

The scenario that I have created while coloring them is, 
the Big Sinister is nothing more than an innocent pawn 
for the Little Bother to control telepathically.

He is pure evil.
Notice how he has no blood on him whatsoever?
He is definitely the one in control of this diabolical duo.
Damien, from The Omen comes to mind.

Who is holding whose hand?

I had a blast coloring this image! I stayed with Warm Gray Copics, 
and then just a pop of red to give an old horror film feel.
I added the essential drippy goo punched border, and 
layered it with another (favorite) MS bat fence punch.
Lastly, I popped on a TH bat die cut to give some balance
and dimension to the card.

Please drop by the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog 
to whet your appetite for this timely Touch of Darkness challenge.
It runs for a month, so there is plenty of time to play along.

Thanks for stopping by today. I have a feeling this is
just the tip of the iceberg for creepy projects to come.
