Halloween LOC


Here is my latest DT entry for Left Of Center the theme is Halloween for all of this month. I loved this retro design from bugaboo stamps. This is Sihouette happy Halloween cat 

and here is what inspired the whole thing...

I printed this on acetate, dropped alcohol ink then backed with an old dictionary page so that the light shines through.

I also made the below card with the same formula bust used cob web dye cut and white card for the backing. I am entering this to Less is more challenge which is use acetate.
 I kind of liked the writing backwards so I left it like that, bet most people won't spot it!

Happy Halloween

Vegan Zombie


I have excellent news; I am honored to say that I'm on the Design team for Left Of Center creative challenges. I have long been a entrant in their quirky challenges and was completely made up when I was accepted on their DT. So here is my first DT piece for their month theme of Halloween.

The image is from the most excellent and auspicious Rick St Dennis, it is called "Zombie let's have brains." I colored the image with prisma pencils which are my new craft lust objects. The fonts are "about dead" and "Bleeding Cowboy", which both seemed aptly named. I love this joke, also I think that vegan Zombies have been really under represented in the horror genre and it's time for that to change!
