13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #3 Featuring & The Paper Shelter Challenge #446 - Hallowe'en or Hallowe'en colours

Good morning everyone and welcome to Day #3 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en, which for today's post I have combined with my DT challenge post for The Paper Shelter's new challenge, which quite fittingly is also a Hallowe'en challenge.

This gorgeous image is Sugar Skull. We don't really do anything here in the UK for The Day of The Dead, but I love all the make up designs and outfits that you see when people are celebrating it. I think this image works really well for Hallowe'en too! I used some of my new gorgeous Hallowe'en Market from Bella Carta and added some blood drips and skulls from one of my Hallowe'en die sets. I really love how it came out - it's just so different from all the other cutesy Hallowe'en images I have been using!
