Digi Haven DT Project - Two Colours

It's challenge time again at Digi Haven, this fortnight our theme is "Use Two Colours" and we're sponsored by My Graphico.  You can use neutrals such as black and white along with your chosen two colours if you like, as you can see, I chose to use purple and red for my project.  The DT were given a set of My Graphico Halloween images to use, I chose this fun bottle label and decided to print it large and use it as a label, rather than make a card with it, I'm going to use it as a Halloween decoration.  You don't need to follow a Halloween theme to play along, just use a digi and two colours, easy as that.  Please do check out what my DT teamies have made for this challenge, there are some pretty awesome creations.
 I reckon that this is the sort of thing that Dracula might have on his table when he's entertaining a lady vampire!
The label was coloured with Promarkers, I added the dripping blood design myself to add to the Halloween feel, and glittered the word "Dracula's" and the bats with black glitter.
After sticking the label to the empty wine bottle with strong double sided tape, I set to work with a candle, a box of matches, and a "Don't try this at home kids" warning, getting wax to drip down the bottle, to add to the Gothic, blood drippy look.  Once the bottle was suitably waxy, I popped a candle in a left it to burn down a good bit, then blew it out and got busy with the matches again to make it all drippy too.
I had such fun making this and my six year old son absolutely loves it.
