MACABRE MONDAYS

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.
love lynx

  4. Wow Lyn, this is awesome and such a wonderful idea. I've used the doorway in a completely different way as you'll see over the next couple of days. This is just so innovative.

  11. Good googly moogly you are working your buns off Lyn - and boy do I love what you've done; that is some really cool work - love the effect of the netting. You've just inspired me to do something with an ATC - by the way, I'm mailing your goodies off to you tomorrow. I made 10 ATCs - woohoo - now I have another idea; will save for our next month swap! ;D
