The Dark Side of October!!

Hi Everyone!

Sorry to take so long to get this posted.  I received a lovely ATC from Sherry at  Our theme for this month at the BlissfullATCSwap is DARK, and Sherry certainly didn't disappoint!  What's really cool is that the card actually lights up!!  You press a certain spot on the bottom right, and suddenly red lights start flashing through the vampire's eyes, and also the bats' eyes!  I tried to catch it in a photo, but failed.  Sorry, but photography is not my strong suite!

Thank you so much Sherry, for such a cool ATC! I may have to hide it from Isabel though! Once she sees those lights, it may not be mine for long!!

Here's the ATC I created.  When I thought of our theme of "dark", an image of the very depths of the ocean came to mind, with all the different colors of blue.  See what you think!

Okay, I admit its not as exciting as Sherry's, but I had a great time with this one.  I used one paint card sample as the base.  From a pamphlet of different colored paint samples, I cut out 8 squares and stitched them to the base.  I then chose buttons that reminded me of the ocean's many colors and glued them to each of the 8 smaller samples.  With a blue copic marker, I outlined the smaller squares over the thread and around the edges of the base.  Voila!

Well, that's all for now! Hope you're all having a great day! Jan
