MACABRE MONDAY

Its Monday again.... so we at MACABRE MONDAY have a new challenge for you... this week its........................................ Loathsome Lotharios
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
representing those bad boys we (sometimes) love to hate.
Think of a rake, libertine, a scoundrel, or a seducer... a man who obsessively seduces and deceives women, and create something that represents your desire or disgust.



I created a scene using 5 stamps from THIRD COAST and 1 from CHERRY PIE.... ( the chappie standing looking at the lasses)i made masks for them all except the last one used that was the building at the rear. I coloured my scene with distress inks, then dakened all the edges..... then...idiot that i am i remembered i needed to do a shaped card.... so i cut my scene into an arch and re-distressed the edges! I mounted my scene onto an easel base i made from black card stock.
I made my 'stop' and covered it with black ribbon.... i made 5 clay flowers, glued them to punched flowers added punched leaves... and the dreaded glitter.... saving grace.... it is black glitter!
I hope you can find time to join us minions this week.
