|can you read the banner - it says "fall fling"|
It was difficult to decide between a cutesy or a dark motif, and as you can see the dark side won out. It's hard to see the dp on the card face since the image and embellies cover so much of it but in the pic of the inside you can see the graveyard easier.
It struck me that these kiddies are all dressed up for a dance which put me in mind of a "fall fling". So hopefully you're getting the idea that the graveyard is all tricked out for dance.
These kiddies (I think they're adorable, does that make me weird?) are Bowtie and Mink. They're Daniel Torrence images. When I colored them I used some pale greens, lavenders and grey on the face of Bowtie. He doesn't strike me as the type to have a peaches and cream complexion.
On the other hand Mink is partial to pink so there's just a very slight undertone of green which barely shows except on her eyelids where I used a darker shade because Mink thinks that the green eyeshadow really plays up her hair. I think she's right
Mink wore her best skirt for the dance. It's purple, her second favorite color, which goes so well with her favorite pink. The skirt has lots of bling on it, because the fall fling is a semi-formal dance.
The banners are dressed up with red stickles in the hopes of looking like blood and there's a spider hanging of the banner just because. I couldn't resist adding the cockroach ribbon once again - just because.
