And now for something completely different...... I've been doing a bit of blog browsing and have found some fantastic "dark" art stuff as they call it. So I decided I decided in the new year I'd get some images and give it a go, not too sure how well I've done but here goes. I also have the added incentive that one or two people at work like the more goth looking cards or have friends that do to encourage me to try this.
The image I've chosen to do first is from Oddball Art Co - Creepy Cute Fairy Girl. I'm not sure if she's got a pet under those bandages but it's kinda cute :) I coloured the image with ProMarkers and used a black biro to add some more detail to her hair. The image is cut with a Spellbinders die, then I also cut the same die out in black card and stuck the two together so there's a shadow effect.
The papers are from two different packs of Santoro's Gorjuss and I also used some black card stock as the base. The metal heart is also from Santoro's Gorjuss.
Final embellishments - a bit of ribbon I picked dip from Lili of the Valley a while ago and some black self adhesive gems from Hobby Craft.
Oh and I also added some bats in biro to the design paper by the tree branch, nearly forgot at bit!
Hope she's ok for a first attempt - now onto the next one :)
