Halloween in July

With everyone gearing up for their "Christmas in July" projects, I decided I needed a Hallowe'en in July project!!!  Here she is:

The image seen here is Simply Betty's The Oval Portrait... isn't she GORGEOUS??!!??  I am absolutely over-the-moon for this image!  I call it The Witching Hour for obvious reasons and think it's the PERFECT image for Hallowe'en in July (Oh how I wish it were Halloween).  To color her I used the following Spectrum Noir markers:
Hair:  EB1, EB2, EB3, GB8
Skin:  FS1, FS2, FS4 (Lips:  DR4, DR7)
Dress:  PP4, DR1, DR3, DR6, DR7, IG1, IG3, IG6, IG10, Blender
Foliage:  CR5, DR7, DG1, DG4

Here's a close up of her uncolored and then colored:

I love, love, love this image!!!  I'm not done with her yet, after a conversation with "Simply Betty", I've decided that I NEED to copy her COFFIN BOX.... check it out HERE.... I know you'll want to copy it too!!! 

That about does it for today, stay tuned for the upcoming Spectrum Noir Christmas in July Blog Hop taking place July 21st.  It is going to be a big deal with another HUGE prize give away.  Do you like the reds and greens that you see here?  Well the "hop haul" includes the Green Starter Set, the Red Starter Set, a Crafter's Companion paper pack and a Crafter's Companion stamp!!!  That one's gonna be fun!!!  So mark your calendars.... you won't want to miss what the Spectrum Noir design team designs for a Christmas in July!!!
