Exciting News!!!!

Welcome fellow bloggers, crafters and friends......

I have been wanting to share my news for a while, but couldn't..... well now I can YAY

As my followers will know. In February,  I applied to join the PunkYouGirl Design Team. Well, I wasn't successful......

YEAH I WAS!!!!!!!

Wooooohoooooo <<does happy dance>>

PunkYouGirl is a monthly Dark Themed Challenge Blog. We have some amazing sponsors and amazing prizes.....
We are dark themed, so want to see all your dark themed entries.  

This months prize is provided by one of our wonderful DT Kim

This month, we were allowed to run free and use anything we wanted, as there was no specific sponsor. 

The theme is Fairytale Gone Bad

Now, this had me stumped, mainly due to me being thick and not knowing disney stories were mostly fairytales!!! Doh

I had an idea in my head so set about searching all the digi pages looking for the perfect image.... two hours later, nothing.
Now, don't laugh, but I decided to draw my own image!!!

Here is what I made....

The backing image is from the wonderful Delicious Doodles. I coloured this, and the main image, with my WHSmiths colouring pencils. 

The image I drew, using lots ot tutorial posts on pinterest. I wanted an evil Little Red Riding Hood,  so made her into a vampire!
I drew her in pencil, then inked over and scanned her so I could change the size... (if you want a copy of the image, please just comment with your email).

I was stuck for how to get good blood, so I asked the goddess of darkness Helen aka Crom's Cubby Hole. Helen told me that nail varnish makes great blood and to get the right look 'imagine eating a messy yogurt, and where the yogurt would go if you spilt it' (not verbatim lol). 
I'm not sure I got it quite right, but she certainly looks messy with blood lol Thanks Helen, you are a total star ★★★★★

I finished by distressing and tearing the edges, black metal mini candi, black peeloffs for the sentiment and red backing card.

Well, this is my first DT post for PunkYouGirl, as well as my first ever hand drawn image!!

I hope you will pop over and join in with the challenge.....embrace your dark side and have fun!!!!

Thank you, as always, for you visits and support.
