Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween to all of you! 

 This month was a super busy month for me and unfortunately I did not meet my personal goal of posting 31 Halloween projects. I'm sorry about that if you were expecting to see a lot more Halloween projects! ( If only I could craft for a living! ) But I do have a project for today!

I finally finished my take on Bombshell Stamps October Sketch Challenge but I did flip it around a little.
Here's the sketch:

 I created a wall hanging using the Mi Amor Stamp Set and this really cool Vampire-esque cardstock from DCWV. (You should be able to click on the pics to make them larger if you need to.)
Senora Muertas is one of my favorite stamps of all time.  I really wanted a new wall hanging for my craft room so once I saw the October Sketch by Kathi, our Bombshell DT Captain, the gears in my head started turning.  I wanted Senora Muertas to be the focal point but with a darker background and theme.  The forest background paper was perfect for this because it's mysterious. It makes you wonder, what could be lurking in the woods back there?  The base behind the forest is a black glitter cardstock.
Isn't she a beauty?!  I colored her with Spectrum Noir markers. I also highlighted around her in a light grey. The red background behind her has blood stains on it.  I backed it with a pretty blue glittered diamond and damask cardstock.
 The 3D rose is a Silhouette Studio file by Lori Whitlock and was cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.  The Skull is from the Dead Necessities Stamp Set stamped onto grey cardstock from DCWV.
The Mi Amor sentiment was stamped with white ink onto a silver foil cardstock so it would look like an engraved charm. The key is from the Silhouette Online Store and was cut out with the Cameo. I hung the charm & key from black chain.
And here's what the full wall hanging looks like.  The patterned paper is from the 'Immortal Love' stack by DCWV.  The black glitter, silver foil and green cardstock is from the corresponding solid color stack. I ruffled some of the ribbon underneath the horizontal cardstock on the wall hanging to give it a little bit more of an elegant touch. The ribbon is from my stash, along with the chain and jump rings.  

How are you celebrating Halloween today?! I'd love to hear! Leave me a comment!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!!
