Macabre mondays

Sorry its evening but it is still MONDAY so it has to be MACABRE and we have a new challenge for you and we are being sponsored by our very own SUSAN of CRAFTYCHAOS DESIGNS our new challenge is 'Paper Pandemonium '... meaning you have to use 2 designer papers........
I have used 2 of the papers from the VELVET DESCENT collection from CRAFTYCHAOSDESIGNS.
I covered a gift box top in one of them and distressed the edges, and covered the 4sides of the bottom with a different paper..... and distressed that too. I didnt want to use an 'image' because i felt that the papers needed to take centre stage.....
I made a shabby-chic flower from the same paper as i used on the bottom of the box..... some crocheted mesh, black feathers and i silk flower under my flower...... i popped a tiny silver rose in the centre of the flower i made.

Inside the box is a necket i made.... i used one of tim holtz fragment/charm thingies and used diamond glaze to stick a piece of DP to the underside..... i added metal flowers, skulls, chains, beads a heart and a fairy.... this made a sort of goth-punk pendant on the pic to get a better look..... its hung from cord and ribbons.

I hope that you can join in with this very easy challenge and the prize is really worth having.... HONESTLY...... SUSAN DOES THE BEST DIGI PAPERS IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
thanks for visiting me..... love lynx
