 Well as it Monday and the start of another week i have two new challenges to share with you today, but only one project.

This week's challenge theme at SMUDGY ANTICS is:
We want you devoted followers to use a dark, Gothic, or creepy image and make a prettybeautiful, classy, or elegant project with it.  

We love when you guys and gals think outside of the box.   
 The more creative and inventive, the better!  
Let your artistic expression fly free!


"Eerie Elegance"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that depicts elegance in it's most strangest of forms.
You know the style we're talking about. That strange and bizarre, yet
captivating and intriguing bit of oddness. Classy, but not really
fit for human consumption. Yeah, that's it.

So heres my offering..... this is as elegant as i get! Beautiful 'death cab' image from SMEARED INK.... Black, white and silver. Die cuts, punches, ribbon, feathers, gems, and the dreaded glitter card stock. Ribbon flowers, metal flowers....  a lovely metal 'always' mesh....and loads of black ink.

Heres a close up..... its all so dark but it looks pretty good in real life..... i hope you'll join us..... for both of these challenges.... i piece will fit both! ANYTHING GOES....... LINKY PARTY GOTH/EMO FEELING PUNCHY...USE AT LEAST 2 PUNCHES OR DIES VINTAGE MORE IS BETTER JOURNEY..... everyones last JOURNEY! ANYTHING GOES ANYTHING GOES MONOCHROME RECIPE.... i used dies, gems and ribbon
Thanks for visiting. BDx

  10. I keep staring at the first picture and it reminds me of the intro to an old black and white silent movie. The movement and texture and depth you've created are superb and in the depths of the blackness evolves pure elegance! Nicely done.
