Book of Spells

It's getting near that time again to get the kids ready to go Back to School and that's the theme of our next challenge at Oddball Art on the challenge blog.

I've used image number 88 for my inspiration for you today.  A few of us have used this same image so if you want some more inspiration for this particular image check out the main challenge blog page :)
She's kind of a Harry Potter wannabe with her spooky spell book.  I've also used image 199 so she's plenty of reading material to keep her going - you know like your kids always seem to have when they start school!

Anyway I've coloured the images using ProMarkers - my old faithful.  The image has then been cut out with a Spellbinders die.

The design papers are from Lili of the Valley, Santoro Gorjuss and Our Daily Bread.
Added extras a silver skull and cross bones to go with the spooky theme and some letter beads to make up the sentiment.

We've got some really creative cards on the challenge blog this month - worth checking out for ideas.
