Welcome fellow Bloggers, Crafters and Friends.
WOW that first two weeks went so quickly. Thank you to everyone who showed me such amazing support on my first post for A Step In The Dark Challenge Blog.
Again, I understand that the dark themes aren't to everyone's tastes, but you have all supported me and left such brilliant feedback on my techniques used etc....It means so much to me.
The theme for A step In The Dark's Challenge #2 is..... "Anything Goes/Purple"
I chose to use an Image from The East Wind called Lucy Loo Love Letter 2.
Here is what I have made.....
The spiders web and Skeleton Frame were both cut using my cameo.
The backing card was sprayed with purple and black mica inks. I then drew my own border with a thin black pen and used wiggly lines .
I coloured the image with WHSmiths colouring pencils. I cut it down to fit in the frame and distressed it with black soot TH distress Ink and sprayed with the same mica sprays as on the backing. I then added black flat backed gems to the corners.
I used a selection of paper roses with a black feather and some black wired bead sprays. I added some skeleton leaves and a hat pin. I know skeleton leaves aren't that fashionable anymore, however I LOVE them so will use them lol
I finished the card off by embossing a wooden skull and crossbones.
A Step In The Dark only accepts dark, punk, emo, gothic, cute scary, steampunk etc entries, so I know for a fact this challenge wont appeal to most of my followers..... However, I hope that it will appeal to the dark lovers that visit my blog.
Thank you once again for visiting my blog and leaving such lovely comments...
