Art by MiRan Facebook Challenge #2 for October - Anything Goes

Happy Friday and oh what a good Friday today is! It's the end of the half term so I now have a week off work and boy do I need it after this week?! I have done 2 parents evenings - one until 6pm, the other until just after 7pm and had to endure a whole day of Rock 'n' Roll singing from 9:30 - 6:30! I am absolutely shattered! The things us teachers have to do, huh?! I have no idea where this 3pm finish comes from as we certainly never do it!

Anyway on to the challenge for the Art by MiRan Facebook group. This fortnight our challenge is an Anything Goes one again, as it is for the second challenge of every month. I decided to make another Hallowe'en creation this month, but made a decoration instead of a card this time. I used the fang-tastic Vampire Veronica. Isn't she just fabulous?! She's a very classy vampire.

I made a flourish coffin box using my Silhouette Portrait machine and added Veronica to the front. the camera didn't really pick it up but her cape is covered with clear star Gelly roll pen and there are dots of it round the edge of the box too for some subtle hints of sparkler.

Not the best photo in the world as it was really hard trying to take a photo in the dark-ish so that you can see the effect of having a battery operated tea light inside the coffin. Looks fabulous in real life though and really lights up Vampire Veronica!
