31 Days of Halloween - Day 7 - with TIOT

BEWARE- Alex went a bit crazy with this one people.  I KNEW the fumes were getting to her.  The giggling was more mad scientist evil laugh when this was being created. 


This card is using the wonderful Halloween paper with the raven on it from Memory Box called Blackbird.  The entire paper pack is yummy, but, obviously, I am partial to this one and glad Alex decided to showcase it.  The image is a stamp from the latest release at SCACD.  It is called Flowers for Mom and is part of the Mini Sampler #1 drawn by Elisabeth Bell.  I know, EB does not draw creepy, she draws cute and this is not so cute.  Do you see the zombie skin and glowing red eyes?  I am pretty certain EB would be shaking her head if she saw this.


The challenge given to the SCACD team this week was to use an image that had 'animals' in it.  I agree, I do not see an animal either!  Alex originally had different plans entirely for this challenge.  When she sat down to work on it though, she saw this image stamped and lying on her work table.  The left side of her brain just took over.  First was the thought that humans are animals too.  The next thing she saw was to cut off the items that are already in the wagon and fill it with something else.  Immediately she began repeating Monty Python and saying "Bring out your dead"  "I'm not dead yet!"  and that is when the mad scientist giggling began.  I am telling you, I had my wings ready because she was just a bit scary sounding!  Then paper, ink, pens, flowersoft and all sorts of things began flying through the air and next thing I knew, she was showing me this card. 


At this point the 'animal' has to be either the raven on the paper, the teddy bear cut out, the girl turned zombie or......  Perhaps there is a cute little something hidding in the leaves she made with the autumn blend flowersoft.  The tag is a Mayaroad chipboard tag and gives added dimension to the top of the card.

So, what do you all think?  Should I be afraid? 

Please go see what the rest of the SCACD team created on Folllow Your Heart so you can fully appreciate how wonderful the images in this release are.  Until tomorrow.

Happy Halloween!
Edgar
