Simply Betty Stamps - Challenge #4!!

Today's challenge is 'Scene It'!!  Welcome to another week of fantastic challenges!!  I LOVEEEEEEE this one (I love all of them) but this inspiration is just awesome and was and is one of my very favorite Halloween movies!!

Here is your MUSE for this challenge:

The Prize for this challenge is any 3 Digis of winner's choice!  Any three from any line!  It's totally a fabulous prize!!!  So generous of Betty and super cool to be able to pick any 3!!!

Here is what I came up with for this challenge:

Using Mummy Lola (love her!!)  I colored her with my Prismacolor and Copic markers.  I trimmed her out and set her aside.

I then printed out the actual inspiration image from 'It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown'.  I printed it in grayscale with a tint so it would come out a little dark and creepy looking.  I then used an acrylic overlay as an added accent to separate the image from the pieces I'm adding on top. 

Once that was all in place, I added a scrap of cotton duck fabric that my darling friend Kristyn distressed for some fabulous Mummy wreaths she made.  I simply used craft glue and crumpled it around and held it until I liked the way it looked.

I then added Lola on top of that with 3-D adhesive. 

I was feeling punchy when I created my sentiment 'just passing through....'   If you haven't noticed, I crack myself up.  I distressed the paper that it was printed on as well as the backing.  It is also popped up on 3-D adhesive.

I hope you enjoy my creation as well as those of my other fabulous Simply Betty Stamps Challenge sisters!!! 

Be sure to leave lots of love and don't forget to play along at the challenge blog!!  I can't WAIT to see what you come up with!! 

Crafty Hugs!

Love the aged look to the charlie brown pic. Mummy Lola looks fantastic, the added scrap of fabric could easily have fallen off her.
