Guest Designer for the LOC First Anniversary Party

Left of Center is one of my favorite Challenge Blogs, so naturally I was thrilled when asked to participate as a Guest Designer during their First Anniversary party.  Each day from March 7th through 31st there is fab inspiration and a special Anniversary Challenge (apart from their fortnightly challenges) as well.  I was even more excited when Mitzi Sato-Wiuff, the uber talented artist from Aurora Wings, one of the fab sponsors, allowed me to introduce a brand new digi in honor of the event.

Here is a closeup of the gorgeous new image entitled Madness and seeing I live in the Livermore Valley wine country (and love my wine ;D) you can just imagine how much I LOVE her!  Fabulously dark, don'tcha think?  Madness, indeed!  She was printed several times, colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped on a giant tag.  The vine is an ancient Spellbinders die that I'd never used but was perfect for this project.  The fab DP is K&Co.

The quote is from a poem by Bob Jonson from the 1600's.  I just couldn't resist.  LOL  It was printed on yet another of the Fancy Labels from the Cuttlebug Emboss Plus folder of the same name and inked with Distress.  Of course I had to add a bit of Drippy Goo.

Here's the dimensional shot, always my favorite part.  The grapes, blood drips and eyeballs were all coated with Glossy Accents but unfortunately that  doesn't seem to show up in any of the pix.  I hope you're enjoying  the LOC Anniversary Celebration as much as I am and are taking part in their very special ATG challenge, as well.
I'm also entering this in the TTPH Bingo Challenge (using the diagonal Purple, Sentiment/Greeting, and Punch)
