Some happy news - and a new challenge.

Hi all,
Well as the title of my post would suggest I have some very happy news to share with you all.
I have been asked by the lovely ladies at Through The Purple Haze challenges to join their design team.
I saw their DT call on Paper Playful and thought I would give it a shot.
I was delighted when Fiona emailed me to invite me to join them.
They are a lovely bunch of ladies and I am looking forward to being a part of their team.
So without further ado, let's get on with my first challenge post.
So the theme this week is 
and our lovely sponsor is 
And the prize is $10 to spend in digital images.
So here is the image I was given to work with, isn't it fab?? It is called Bat woman.
So here is the project I made:
Obviously the challenge is to make a shaped card.  I didn't want to just do a plain shape I wanted to do something really different.  So I looked at the image and thought - someone like that would live in a castle with lots of dark passageways and dingy rooms.
The shape is cut out on my Silhouette Cameo and then I have coloured different parts of it with my Promarkers.  I cut the basic shape out in white and then cut the extra bits out in Kraft card. I am really pleased with how it turned out.
But wait, where's the image I hear you shout???
Well, obviously she is inside waiting for it to go dark!
I used some Distress Ink in Stormy Sky to brush the inside - after all a dark castle wouldn't have really white walls now would it? Lol 
I coloured Bat woman with my Spectrum Noir Pencils and then fussy cut her and placed her inside the castle.  I used a circle of paper on top of the image to brush a halo of light around her head.
So I hope you like what I have made for you.

To celebrate my new DT place I decided to have a wee bit of Candy.
So please leave me a comment and I will choose a winner from all those who leave a comment to win this little bundle of goodies.

Thanks for stopping by.
