Yesterday, upon the stair


It's Monday again, and since I'm sure you're all half-crazed now that Halloween is over, we thought we'd give you a nice easy challenge at HDH this week, so we're having a Macabre Monday Fabulous Freaker's Free-For-All! Anything you like, as long as it's suitably dark of course :D
This rhyme REALLY scared me when I was young. How do you run away from someone who isn't there? So I thought this wonderful digi would exorcise those particular demons and make sure he stayed away. The ending was changed to suit :P She's called Dorothy and she's from The Octopode Factory, isn't she fantabulous? And I added in all her defences - the voodoo doll is by Kah-Wink-E-Dink, and the hatchet and the noose were both from free clip art sites.
These are the other challenges I made her for:
Fab n Funky - clean and simple. No patterned paper, no fancy bits anywhere, just an image a frame, some solid blocks of colour and text
Truly Scrumptious - sketch + optional petals pearls and/or pins. Well I followed the sketch and got the pearls in the frame and the pins in the doll but I couldn't get any petals in there as well without losing the clean and simple requirements for the above challenge
Rainbow Lady - spooky and scary
Design Dollies - purple black and white
Totally Gorjuss - spooky
2 Sisters Challenge - no designer paper
Irish Teddy - use a frame

Fabulous caard, I love the colours and that fantastic whacky image. The sentiment from the Hughes Mearns poem is inspired.

So glad you could join us at Truly Scrumptious.
