Vampire kisses


I've been indulging my darker side today, and this is what I came up with. The original image is from Outlaw by Design, I darkened her eyes, gave her fangs and cropped out her white underwear before adding her to a background I did in PSP.
I also made it with a few challenges in mind, but it may be a little dark for some of them. No-one specifically says that they only want clean or cute artwork, but I won't take offence if I don't get included for any draws, I've just been having fun :)
So, I followed sketch 12 over at the Sketch Girl blog.
The current Pink Elephant challenge is to use ribbon. I've had that black sparkly ribbon for so long and just couldn't fnd anything that it looked right with, so I'm really pleased I finally found a use for it :)
The Macabre Monday challenge is to use a Vampyress, and I turned my lady into one :)
And the Saturday Spotlight challenge is Around the House, and you have to use a household item, which isn't a craft stash item. I chose a safety pin, and lol, I had to pinch the last one out of our very small sewing kit, so let's hope nothing needs pinning any time soon :P

I love it .... you need to indulge your darkside more often... i think this is fang-tastic.I wish i could do digital art.
I cant imagine that you wouldnt be includedd in any of the challenges you have listed, art doesnt have to be cute and girly all the time.
This is smashing.

I think the other challenges just don't know they need a little present from the dark side yet. Just wait.. recruits are on their way!! Oz

Spooky! My children love saying that word and it is the first thing that came to mind when I saw your card :>) Great details on this card...the ribbon is perfect for the image and the safety pin is so symbolic of the sentiment it holds. Great job with the sketch, thanks for playing along with Sketch Girl!
