MACABRE MONDAYS

It's monday so its time for MACABRE MONDAYS new challenge...... this one nearly gave me a heart attack...... and it sure drove me to the brink of insanity!
The challenge is..........................
Pink on the Brink
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card using pink in an edgy and dark way. Edgy & pink... what puts you on the brink? The brink of insanity... the brink of catastrophe... the brink of death?Bonus: This week's challenge is being sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps! I'm not sure what the prize is, but you can bet it will be a goodie! The link above will take you directly to Kellie's store, but they also have a blog site here: Tickled Pink Blog

I painted a small box a dreadful shade of bubblegum pink..... 'borrowed' some tattoos ( you know the kind.... apply with water... rub off with baby oil) from my daughters, and put them on the sides of the box..... but ....crikey they were to small for the top so i cut out the image from the packed and glued it on.
I stamped a fake zipper around the opening edges and 'cracks' and finally blackened all the edges.
Considering it is really pink... and i do mean PINK it turned out ok with 3 coats of sealer..... it shines like the proverbial toilet door.
If i can do pink anyone can.... so i hope you can come and play with us minions this week........ please?
Thanks for visiting love lynx

  7. Well, I have to tell you, you really did a pinked up job on this beauty - I'm loving the pink and skull with that beautiful pink bow! HAHA Soooo darn cute, Lyn! I love that fake zipper - how cool is that! The stamping is great because it looks antique...you gotta tell me how you did that one day. I love the look!
