A little bit darker

Good evening, hope you've enjoyed a lovely relaxing weekend. Today I've been  indulging in some me time...tomorrow my granddaughters arrive for the week, so I'm going to be very busy! 
I've coloured up a couple of  fabulous Aurora Wings images and made some cards to enter in the current challenge...'Darkness Falls'.... I don't 'do' horror films but must admit I've always been fascinated by the darker side of fantasy and fairy tales, so I thought it would be fun to use my imagination and play along. The image I used for this card is Chrysanthemum Festival, I've cropped it a bit and tried to colour her a bit creepy! She's holding a butterfly but that didn't go with my theme so I gave her an owl instead (cropped from Sisterhood) it's attached over the image with silicone to add a little dimension. The frame around the image is a die cut circle oated with black Nuvo glimmer paste which has also been applied through a stencil to make the drips!.
Thanks for looking...hope I don't give you nightmares with this!
