It's Time for Some Dead Day 20

Still trying play catch up from last week, so here's another
quick and deadly one for ya.

This is the Las Calaveras image from Aurora Wings.
Today is the launch of a new Aurora Wings challenge for the month,
Heartfelt Thanks.   

This lovely lady has been colored with Copics and mounted onto
a black card matte. The card base is Midnight Magic Halloween dp
from Recollections. The entire pad is black, gray, and purple. Love it! 

I totally forced that spider web die from La La Land Crafts
because I thought it mimicked the web on her forehead nicely.
Too bad the photo isn't clearer, but time was running out
and so was my camera battery.
I added a TH Movers and Shapers spider to accent the web
and to fill the void on the card. I painted him black with Distress Paint
and rubbed some Inka Gold in purple on him for shine.

I like the look of vellum, but am always stumped as to how to 
adhere it without the adhesive showing.

That's going to do it for me today.
Be sure to check out all of the fabulous projects on the 
31 Days of Halloween and all of the cool Halloween inspired
posts on the Countdown to Halloween hops running all this month.
