A step into the dark side...


I made my first post over at Airless Chamber today.... the other Rick St Dennis blog...

What's on the airless chambers blog I hear you ask.....

Art from a place of Shadows and Dreams, of Things and Ideas-Steampunk, alternative, Gothic, horror, Vampires, zombies and things that go bump in the night...

The digi stamp I used is called Lizzywhigs.

I used pro markers to color her. I wanted to giver her a 'out of the grave look' so added mud to her clothing.

On the finished project I added red dots to her eyes to make her look more creepy. 

I created the background of the tag by using an embossing folder on black magic card and then sanding it down so you can see a hint of blue. 

Hope you like it

Mothers Day for Animal Lovers.


On the 10th of May it's mothers day in America. As some of you will know I'm a huge animal lover. When I was five or six I can remember telling my foster mum ' I don't want babies, I want puppies and kittens' For those of us who have animals, their are family so that;s what inspired me to make this card.

Over at Get Creative Challenges we have a mothers day/for a lady themed challenge starting today.. just click here to take part.

Our sponsor is the wonderfully unique Oddball art. http://oddballstamps.blogspot.co.uk/

Have fun
