All Dressed up for Mummy

Hello everyone.

We have another fabulous challenge over at All Dressed up.  As ever its anything goes - just as long as you use an All Dressed Up image.

All of the fabulous images can be found here on Etsy (including the little cutie I've used below), or we have some beautiful freebies here

We also have a Facebook challenge here with the theme 'Autumn colours'

or if you need more inspiration, why not try our pinterest page here

So its now the middle of October - how quickly has the year gone!  I thought I'd showcase a cute little Halloween image called 'All dressed up for Mummy'

I coloured him with promarkers and then fussy cut him out.  Placing him to one side I printed the words 'Happy Halloween' in a spooky font onto cheap copy paper, and then tore the whole sheet up.  Using Distress ink (Old paper) to age it and make it a bit tatty, I cut backing orange card to size and randomly glued on the strips to look like bandages, and added a bit of glitter to the edges. I mounted the cutie on using glue gel and finally mounted on black card and added to a card blank.

I hope you like it.

I'd like to enter him into:
