Betty & Christian Addams

It's Saturday and we've got another challenge for you over at Make it Colourful - this week we're challenging you to color with Blacks & Oranges! So what was the challenge again? I seriously had to look it up several time *while* making my journal page - I just couldn't remember! So alas, I have a lot of blacks and some oranges in my coloring. LOL

On my page I used the pumpkin scarecrow portion of Haunted Halloween House from Make it Crafty (plus some Mini Dragonflies chippies), Betty Addams and Christian Addams from Simply Betty Stamps, and two tombstones in Epitaphs from Inkadinkado.

I decorated the rest of the page with a graveyard theme and used muted colors for a drab and dreary feel. Isn't it romantic!? The felt was cut with dies from My Favorite Things and the roses are part of a ribbon that was cut into section.

The orange is YR18, YR14, YR12 and YR21 and I used all four shades of black on the project. The clothes were done in Neutral and Toner shades, the hair in Cool and the tombstones in the Warm shades. I had colored the pumpkin scarecrow so long ago that I don't remember the colors - however, the blacks/grays and oranges are in there too!
