This is the 1st chance i've had to enter one of my favourite challenges for weeks and heres my take on this weeks theme of 'BRIDAL COUTURE FROM THE DARKSIDE'.
I used one of my new stamps from STAMPITCRAZY.... and coloured the image with ink... masked the background and stamped mesh on the dead womans legs... i then masked her and stamped in the 'door'.... coloured that with inks too. SMUDGED deep purple and black ink around the edges the i sew ( yes i sew) on a piece of netting and some tiny beads to make her a veil.
In my head the story goes..... 'shes sitting on her tombstone looking at the door of the mauseleum waiting for her dearest to arrive and marry her....' thanks for stopping by, its great to be blogging again.... more catching up to do tomorrow.

The challenge this week over at TUESDAY TAGGERS is JIGSAWS..... i choose to recycle an old one of my girls... would you believe this started life as a disney princess jigsaw...( if you continue reading this post you'll BELIVE IT.... our house is full of the girly princess stuff!)
I took 9 joining pieces and painted them white, then stamped one of my collection of skull stamps on it to make a pattern... put an eyelet in each piece and a slip ring and joined them on to a key chain.... if you get bored... really bored.. you can take it a part and do the jigsaw!
Please go and check out the other DT offerings.... all of them are terrific... the link is on my sidebar.... you have a couple of days left still.

Last week was my choice of challenge and i choose to 'use christmas scrap in a non-christmassy way'.... as you can see by the photo, most of the christmas scrap in our house is girly pink, princess stuff.... and everything comes in TWO'S.... pass me the sick-bucket please!
Anyhow i made two.... (i am so used to making 'girly-stuff' in two's it was just natural to do two for the challenge) princess birthday cards for the girls little friends using christmas cards cut up and packaging scraps... only trouble is the girls now wanna keep them so i might just send them to the girls for their birthay in june... cheap-skate hey?
) pr
This bird tag was made for AVRILS challenge, the 1st week after our christmas break.
I used one of my favourite RAVEN stamps from a plate i brought from 'SCRAPZ'.... i stamped and masked and coloured with ink.... and used lots of black ink smudged about.... HAPPY, HAPPY HAPPY!!!!
I want to thank all of the design team for being there for me... everyone on the taggers team has a heart of gold and they are the most understanding bunch of girls i have ever met... i thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, understanding and constant support during the last 4 weeks. THANK YOU ALL.

The theme at tuesday taggers this week is CLASSIC BLACK and WHITE..... ALTHOUGH mine looks grey... it is black and white... i stamped the image in black ink and high lighted areas with white mica powder.... in real life its quite pretty... my photography isnt up to much.
The eyes and lips are coloured with water colour pencils just to bring her to life.
Please come and join us this week for the 1st challenge of the new year.... and you really do need to see the other DT's work...WOW!
Thanks for looking hugs lynx

corrosive challenge

The challenge at CORROSIVE this week is to use your favourite 2 embellishments.... well i'm not really into embellishments but i got these tiny mirror tiles and copper words for christmas so at the mo they are my favs!!! I coloured a piece of heavy duty card with copper and brown ink... stamped thr image in black, high lighted tiny areas with chinese white pencil then triple embossed to make it into an atc tile.
I stuck the little mirrors on with diamond glaze , did the same thing with the word 'hope'.
Ilooks much nicer in real life.... it was near impossible to photograph.
Please come and join us this week... the link is in my side bar.... and i'm sure you all have more exciting favourite embellies than i do.
Thank you for visiting hugs lynx
