I have no idea why making this darker stuff makes me so ridiculously happy, but it does :P
This one uses a stamp by Stitchy called Brite Eye's, and I love her! You can buy her at Stitchy Bear stamps, and can I just say Hurrah hurrah hurrah that there are some darker digi stamps out there :D I added on some wings from Efie's blog and everything else I did in PSP, even the gold beading around the edge of the frame. You can't even really see it, but I know it's there, and I did it myself so yay me! :P
There were a couple of challenges that I wanted to enter but I was having trouble knowing where to start with either of them. The first was "Crows and Ravens" by Darkeness Inspiration, and the second was "Sombre Shakespeare" by Haunted Design House. And then I decided to see if I could comine them, and I came up with this fab quote from Romeo and Juliet.
Beautiful tyrant! fiend angelical!
Dove-feather'd raven! wolvish-ravening lamb!
Despised substance of divinest show!
Just opposite to what thou justly seem'st,
A damned saint, an honourable villain!
Here are the challenges I made it for:
Haunted Design House Macabre Mondays - Somber Shakespeare
Darkness Inspiration - Crows and Ravens
Totally Gorjuss - sketch and my gorgeous item is the original digi stamp.
Crafty Creations - anything goes
For Fun challenges - anything goes
Scramp Stamp and Doodle - flights of fancy
Allsorts - no DPs. Hmm, although I'm not sure if my background counts as a DP now. I had kept the bg as a plain canvas with some distressing and just the ruined building image, but then right at the end I decided to add in some big swirly corners as well, so now it looks more patterned.
