Boo! It's the Black Widow for Halloween

I won the challenge over at Desert Island Crafts last time and got a fabulous image from Delicious Doodles as my prize.
I couldn't wait to use her and so here is the super creepy "Black Widow"!

Card Recipe:
Image - Black Widow from Delicious Doodles
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - The Bewitched Stack by DCWV
Ribbon - Michaels
Doily Die - English Tea Party by Cheery Lynn Designs
Banner Punch - Fiskars Jenni Bowlin Squeeze Punch Scalloped Banner
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Drippy Goo
Flowers - Prima
Spiders - Jolee's Boutique Glitter Spiders
Letter Brads - The Paper Studio
Rhinestones - Michaels






Now the skin on this was one I've never done before, I used the E40's with a touch of E71 to create the sort of undead look to Miss Black Widow. All the while I was coloring her I kept hearing "Contrast, More Contrast" being cyberly whispered in my ear by the fabulous Colleen Schaan and I went back 3 times to add more shadow and I think I'm happy with the results now.
I hope you liked this one and that it gets you in the mood for a little Halloween creating.
