As You See It 161 - DT Card

This week, at As You See It, we have a theme challenge for you. I doubt it will be as scary as last week's Speed Challenge anyway! The ticking clock certainly adds pressure - whoever said cardmaking wasn't exciting?

If you live in a part of the world that celebrates Halloween, then this challenge will be a great one for you to sink your teeth into, vampire or not. I like this challenge because it also makes it easier for people like me who live in parts of the world where Halloween isn't a thing.

I have taken some of the inspiration from the photo, especially the colours and the moody sky. I've also taken some of the conventions of the horror genre - the full moon, the night, the skeletal tree and deserted house. The tree and sky are dwarfing the house deliberately to make add to the sense of isolation.

However, the truly scary thing is in being lonely and in being without someone important. So that's why the sentiment is ' Missing You'.

You can join up with us until Wednesday 1 November, 11.55 p.m. PST. 
We'd love to see what you see as SCARY.
