WooHoo! I'm thrilled to be guesting for a time for A Step in the Dark and this fortnight's Challenge is ATG (Dark) or Dark Fantasy, sponsored by Aurora Wings. ASITD is a new dark crafting blog and I hope you come and join the group. I've chosen the fabulous AW Santa Muerte for my project and made a wall hanging in traditional Dia de los Muertos colors.
This gorgeous image comes as I've colored her with Copics here and also without the background HERE. Isn't she beautiful? (and trust me, not nearly as intimidating to color as she looks.)
The perfect DP is from K&Co and I've added some fun embellies. In the bottom right corner I've used a Tim Holtz tombstone die cut, some Recollections roses that I've recolored with Copics and a fab spiderweb (and skullie) charm.
On the left I finally managed a hand made rose using the Tim Hotz pinecone die, enhanced with some Stickles. I'll be making more of those for sure,now that I've finally got the hang of it. Also some lovely Drippy Goo (MS punch) in red foil CS to match the foil flowers in the DP.
Finally, I've made a triple looped bow with my Bow (un)Easy and added a gorgeous dripping butterfly die cut from Cheery Lynn that I originally saw on ASITD DT sister Teresa's Blog. Thanks so much, Teresa! (See, I told you you want to check this place out) I've grunged up a skullie charm to add to the butterfly and finally, the sentiment is from Tim Hotz. Be sure to vist ASITD to see the fabulous makes from the DT and some play along for a chance to win a $15 GC from the amazing Aurora Wings.
I made sure I used plenty of metal to enter the current Use Metal Challenge at LOC.
