You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that uses, includes, or depicts metal in some way. You can go very literal with metal embellishments or metallic papers.Or you can use the Metal music genre for your muse, or maybe some industrial H.R. Giger type stuff.Make it dark if you dare!!We like things a bit more on the spooky side here in 'da house!
So METAL it is.....
I had a lot of fun with a digi stamp from my fellow minion IKE.... its on sale in her shop....
http://www.ikesart.com/#!__digital-art-stamps/productsstackergalleryv20=7 and traced really well on to some black coated metal. I embossed the image into the metal, then etched the details in. I matted it onto silver card then onto a black card base.
I used a MS punch on both edges of a strip of silver mirri card and added a piece of black velvet ribbon.
Yep....i made a card.... but my cards are nothing to write home about so i thought i'd also make a pendent.... i used the same black metal.....but a much smaller image....
i did exactly the same as i did for the larger image on the card.... once finished i adhered it to a pendant blank, took my time making sure all the edges were neatly folded then with metal working tools made a pattern around the edge and onto the front around the RAVEN image. I have just threaded through some double sided jewelry quality velvet..... hopefully making it into a very wearable Gothic inspired necklace.
I hope you'll have time this week to play along with us minions.
