Black and White Demure

Good afternoon on this fine crisp October Thursday. 🙂 Some Odd Girl is continuing our ODDtober challenges today with a sweet one – Black and White.

Since it is October, the season of ghouls and macabre, I thought to create an old Black and White portrait for this challenge. Think back to all those horror movies with the black and white portraits on the wall watching you. 😉 To accomplish this I picked the wonderful Demure. Her look was exactly what I was looking for.

Black and White Demure

The design is pretty simple. I didn’t want the black paper to be so flat, so I create two panels by tearing a middle panel diagonally across the paper. Some Lawn Fawn slit border action and I was satisfied.

As much as I love black and white, this needed a pop of color, which it got with the use of flat-backed wine red pearls. It almost looks like drop of blood, no? 🙂


ODDtober has been a blast so far and only 10 more days left! I’m looking forward to our fabulous Halloween Blog Hop, I hope you are too!

Let's Party like it's ODDtober

Hello my friends! It is another fabulous ODDtober challenge today. To see all the lovely inspiration and the theme for this challenge, head over to the Some Odd Girl Blog.

As for my own sample for today’s challenge I used the absolutely wonderful On Safari Clear Stamp set with an accessory from Owl-Days (retired).

Let's Party Card

I love using non-Halloween stamps for Halloween cards. 😀 The lion was colored up way back in spring. I used Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Ink in Slate for the stamping, and colored him up in Copics.

The layout is actually the other half of a previous card I did with the newest Vampire Bunny. I just love those stitches! I think it all fits ODDtober so well, so don’t forget to play along with us as well. 🙂
