Trick or Treat

I mentioned in my earlier post how I had loads of ideas for the challenge over at Saturday Spotlight but that they just wouldn't translate to paper. Some of that was because I lacked a stamp and couldn't find a digi stamp to do what I wanted. So I cheated and trawled the kiddies colouring pages.

Again I need to apologise for the slight blurring. Doesn't seem to matter what I do the camera is giving this slight haze. I guess I am getting older and maybe there is a slight shake to my hand.

Anyhow so I found a colouring page for a magician and then one for something yummy. Coloured with my favourite OMS and prismas with a touch of sparkle on the ribbon on the hat, the cape and bow tie, again sadly not showing up on the camera; matted up onto some gorgeous basic grey with a scrap of ribbon and some rub on letters and bingo Halloween II. I promise not to turn this into a sequel like the movies and keep on knocking these out.

Hope no one minds a second bite of the cherry but I knew if I didn't make this now I would forget the idea in a week and I thought it might fit the requirements quite well.

Off to get ready for the winter flu jab. Wish me luck
