Oh jeez, that time is creeping up on us fast isn't it?  4 weeks and we'll be planning for 2014.  Arrrrgh!.... But, for now, it's time again for the new I ♥ PROMARKERS challenge.  This week it's #196 and our theme is Anything Goes. Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps and my chosen image is Black Widow by Delicious Doodles and available to buy from Stitchy HERE.

I liked this image as soon as I saw it, but wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it, other than give her a red dress.  The purple 'just happened' but I think it works.  The more I look at it, the more I wish I'd made her hair darker but then I didn't want to lose the detail of the drawing.  Anyway, she probably looked in the mirror and frightened herself grey, lol.  The web die is Cheery Lynn, border die is EK success, embossing folder is Embossalicious and the lace and pearls have been in my stash since Adam was a boy.  The font I used for my sentiment is 'chiller' and it was cut out using one of those 'right up to the edge' dies from (I think) CART -US.

Entering into:
OLDIE BUT A GOODIE - Ribbon and/or lace.
SONGBIRD #28 - Die another day. (Song title-Freak Out by 311)
SMUDGY ANTICS - Anything goes.
BEARLY MINE #114 - Anything goes.
PARTY TIME TUESDAY #148 - Anything goes.
613 AVENUE CREATE #47 - Anything goes.
MAKE IT MONDAY #168 - Anything goes.
ARTISTIC INSPIRATIONS #69 - Anything goes.
PAPER PLAYTIME #24 - Anything goes.
