Spooky

Greetings,

One of my favourite poems is the Rhyme of the acient marnier this image is inspired by the poem, using the epic ghost ship stamp by Sheena Douglas and the blotted writing is from Revolution by Visable image.

This is for the Current TIOT challenge: Spooky. let your inner Hammer horror run free....

speaking of Hammer I saw Dracula untold last week. It was great fun, Horror cliche bingo had to be played at times, hairy spider check, bats check, skulls check, haunted cave check. Really good cast hope there is a second film...

do not stand infront of this man when he needs to get to the bar..

Green abstract

Greetings,

I went completely abstract for this and had a great time, the background is made with Dylusion sprays and a stencil then I stamped over with a grunge flourish stamp from Visable Image, who are a bit of a new favourite at the mo. Then I tore the edges of the background and mounted on black card. I think it looks like an alien plant.

I am entering this for the most excellent

Artful times challenge - Green.
sister act card challenge - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps - Anything goes

Whimsey

Greetings,

This card is made for the Less is more challenge which this week is mostly words.

 This features an old banner stamp from the wild aspragus collection by my mind's eye, my beloved peg stamps on a scrap of a back ground made with paper artsy paints. I love it, so simple and a touch silly.

ghost bride



Greetings,

I recentley got this ghost bride image from Aurora Wings and have been playing with her ever since.
so here she is in a some glamour shots..


In card form this is her debut .... glamorous decay


The card background is created with paper artsy bricks stamped in pumice stone and then over stamped with a crackle background in weathered wood ink. I very lightly shaded her skin and some of the flowers with water colour pencils, I then used a water pen to blend the colours. I hope the arch against the stone work gives a church feel.

I am entering the card for  the following challenges:

left of  center - fairytales- the tale of the Ghost bride

I also wanted to include these images which influenced the above images


these phots were taken at Rockingham Castle which is wonderful.
