Spooky Photo

Is the theme for my card
Over at Tickled Pink Challenge 
they have asked us to create from this Photo
So here is what I came up with
I have to admit my image is a Christmas image
not spooky looking at all...
But guess what
Now I have coloured her she is
She is a tad green...lol
the image is Lil Christmas Ivy
although for this card she is now called
Lil Green Ivy
I have coloured her in pencil in grey
My base card is white I then layered with Black
then on top of that Orange
The background image I found on Google
it was bright Orange so I changed it in Photoshop
I just liked the spooky feel of the sky
with the shadow building, trees, and ghouls
I then added a handmade pumpkin
cut out with my craft knife 
to look like one I made when I was younger.
Then on went some spiders
I do hope it is Ok not to use a Halloween Image
