Work in progress: Funky Fairys Challenge

Funky Fairys Challenge #36 is to use the gorgeous halloween papers Shaz has provided as a free download - Thanks Shaz! I have used some here on the inside cover of a little book I am making for my bro-in-law's 40th on the 31st, hence the halloween link! I grunged and grunged with an old black ink pad, using a cotton bud to apply it to smaller areas and to take the shiny white off the die-cut ghosts. As 'Oooh Scary' is a phrase Rob uses quite often (in sarcastic tone and usually when my sister is playfully threatening him with something) that's also a play on words! The white strip at the side will be hidden when it is all put together.

J’ai commencé un mini-album pour le 40e anniversaire de mon beau-frere. Son anniversaire est le 31 octobre donc, pour cette page, j’ai utilisé des papiers de la theme halloween de Funky Fairy: C’est le challenge cette semaine. J’ai utilisé aussi beaucoup de encre noir à vieillir le page et les phantoms.
