Perilous Princess


Ok, I have lots of other things I should have been doing today, but I couldn't tear myself away from this until I was happy, and I really am now :D I'm relatively new to digi art and to collage, and to darker work, but I love how this one has turned out.
I made it for the Perilous Princess challenge over at Haunted Design House
I started with a vintage postcard, got rid of the elegant background, zombified her a bit, gave her a crown, a pendant and an eye where her heart should be. Then I did the background and the text, added in a peacock, a goblet and a starburst and this is how it turned out :D Actually, lol, it wasn't that simple, nearly everything has been altered/modified by me in some way, I've more or less been pressing random buttons to see what effects I liked the look of. The original peacock, goblet and crown are from Itkupilli and the letters and text are from Scrapbook Graphics.
LOL, so now I've got my jollies creating this very un-jolly piece, it's back to all the things I should have done earlier ;)
