Simonne ... Although my family don't celebrate Halloween as a holiday, I absolutely LOVE to make Halloween themed projects!!  So even though it's not my week to post here on the GI blog (I'm part of Team B!), I couldn't resist sneaking in a spooky creation, hehe!  To create an undead feel to her skin, I coloured her entire face with a layer of 9500 before going over it with 4110.  Then I added shading and detail with the other colours listed below:
