Something Darker

This fortnight is the first time I have entered the fab dark/spooky challenge over at Darkness Inspiration.

The theme this time around is 'On the Graveyard'.

As yet I have no dark themed images or stamps so I kinda had to 'wing it'. (Sorry about the poor quality of the image - very tricky to photograph so much acetate!)

I chose to make an ATC. I started by covering a blank of white card with Antique Linen DI; then punched a circle from the sticky part of a sticky-note (be warned- it doesn't stick well when the inks still damp!) and placed it down for the moon. Then I coloured over it all with Faded Jeans DI; some Tea Dye DI for a cloudy look, black grass stamped across the bottom and some birds drawn on complete the base.

The tombstone was cut (freehand) from a drinks can and embossed with R.I.P. then coloured over with black Staz-On using a cottonbud and added some stamped grass. I shaped it slightly and raised it on foam pads.

On some acetate I stamped more grass across the bottom, a couple of drawn on birds and then the 'dark angel' type silohuette (cannot spell that word lol!) which was hand drawn and coloured with a black permanent marker.
