HDH #176 - Who Are You Supposed to Be?

Where has the time gone... can you believe that it is almost October?!  I have been loving the small glimpses of Halloweenie-ness that have been floating about the web-o-sphere as of late.  It makes me wish the leaves would turn colors faster so I can get into full-on Autumn mode ;)
The crisp evenings have been soooooooo lovely.  It's hard to get out of bed when all I want to do is snuggle down into my light blankie in the mornings!

Anyhoo... here is a bit of shocking news:
I actually made a card.


I know.


AND it was for a challenge over at Haunted Design House to boot.  Woo Hoo!
Hellllooooooo, Minions... didya' miss me?  ;)
I've missed you!
Why is it that life gets totally nuts just when I want to get my mojo on, get creative and enjoy my favorite time of year?
Karma, did I reeeeally f*ck up THAT bad somewhere that I don't recall?  ;)

Good gawd... it's been so long since I've blogged that I can't even reel myself in and stay on track.  
Ahem.  Back to the challenge...
Basically, create something that reflects a costume that you have always wanted to wear for Halloween, but haven't been able to do so, yet.  This challenge is being sponsored by
The Minions and I were given the new Rick St. Dennis images from IBS to work with, and they are delightful!  IBS sells digis as well as rubber stamps.

I have always loved the intricate styling of the whole Steampunk movement.  But to really do it right, it would cost a fortune for one night of frivolity... but maybe someday :)
So, I used Rick's Steampunk Peg image... love her!

Here are the Copics I used:
skin:  E42, 41, 40
brown:  E87, 84, 81, 89 (shadow)
orange:  E08, YR18, YR27, YR15, E19 (shadow)
teal:  BG18, 57, 53, 78 (shadow)
background:  E84, 81
(papers are from Graphic 45)

That's it!  And I might even surprise you in a week or two and create again... you just never know :)

What do you think?
