Welcome to a Goth day..... i have 2 new challenges to tell you about and both pieces i made are very GOTHIC .
First up our new challenge at SMUDGY ANTICS....... WHEELIE GOOD TIME......remember no cute.... we dont do cute.....make long as somewhere its stamped...either real rubber or digi with WHEELS ON..... easy hey?

I used one of the DEATH CAB images from SMEARED INK....and printed it onto an image from the internet.... thats as digi-clever as i get! I then stamped around the edges with a boarder stamp and used lots of black ink. I used a MS punch and a T!m holtz die....some ribbon roses, a piece of ribbon, knotted to hold an ornate cross from my stash..... i then set to work with a white gel pen to do all the high-lights on my well inked image. I matted and layered it onto silver then black card. The small close up on the right shows the detail better.

You have 6days to join in....we really look forward to seeing what you create.

We minions at HDH have had a bit of a break.... but now we're back and ready to go.....
Our new challenge is...

HDH114 "Got Goth?"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that uses or includes a Goth theme. Think black, lace, leather, elegance, etc.
Yeah, I know... an easy challenge..... but a good one! I have altered a box, using leather textured paper. I printed out the image that we are using as our logo on QUOTH THE RAVEN....(see blog post below...... WONDERFUL CANDY ON OFFER THERE IF YOU BECOME A FOLLOWER!.....sorry i just had to get that little plug in!) triple embossed it to make a tile..... added ribbon roses and a pretty Gothic looking piece of broken jewelry.

The ...what to put in the box? What is more Goth than a satin and lace cuff? I added ribbon, and chains....and made a brooch using the same image..... it can be removed and worn on your jacket.... or where ever you fancy! Please come and show us your interpretation of GOTH...we love seeing what you guys come up with.

I shall enter the following challenges.... USE A DIGI.... the hearse in the 1st project is a digi image from SMEARED INK. OUT WITH OLD, IN WITH THE NEW. my 2nd project is celebrating the NEW POE BLOG.... using old an old box and a broken jewelry. DIE CUTS AND PUNCHES.... my top project has both!
