The 12 Months of Halloween...SBS Style

Simply Betty Stamps is starting a brand new challenge series.  It is called the 12 Months of Halloween.  This is the first challenge and we would like you to create a monochramatic halloween card with a twist.  You can add either orange, lime green or purple to black and white.  Ok, you can use any other color you would like as long as it is a spooky color. 

As you can see, I used purple.  Green is my favorite color but I was asked to stray over to purple so I did.  I started first with this amazing SBS witch.  I have been wanting to color this image for quite a while.  I am very limited with my Copic grays but I did the best I could with what I have.  I plan to get more grays for my birthday this year.  Cross your fingers for me.  My background paper is from DCWV.  It is so beautiful in real life.  I cut out my image and popped it up on SU dimensionals.

The prize for this challenge is to be "The Queen of Halloween", you will get a digi image and be the star of next month's challenge.  All the details are posted on SBS.  Please head over and check out what the others have created for your inspiration. 

Thanks for stopping by.

This is great! I really admire your coloring style. It is so uniquely you! You chose a prefect image to work with, and I love the purple (happens to be one of my favorite colors! Looks like we swapped today!). Great job!

Oh, Rebecca, she's bewitching! Love your coloring -you did a fabulous job with the monochromatic! I only have 3 gray Copics, but I do have a lot in my Prismacolor set so hopefully I can play along! Gorgeous paper too! :)

This is beautiful as always Rebecca. I would have never known you were limited in your grays as this turned out fab.
