An alternative take on things, and beauty in darkness
Hello hello hello :)
It's Sunday again, and that means it's time for another challenge over at OSAAT (One Stitch At A Time). This week the challenge is to use something new, and, lol, I'm promoting myself this week instead of one of the other designers. So, ummm, I'm great, please go buy my papers :P And the current sale at Stichy Bear Stamps will end at the end of May, so to get some fantastic bargains at 50% off the normal price, you need to pop along quickly.
This piece uses my brand new paper set, Decadent Grunge, and I made the wings with a brand new CU script that I purchased as well. I'm actually quite chuffed with the butterfly skull creature here, I used a skull and spine from a vintage medical text, did the wings with my new script and then used both to create this little darkling beauty.
Here are the challenges that I made this piece for:
Order of the Opus Gluei - Seasonal Icons - The butterfly is a seasonal icon, although mine doesn't really look very summery. *points back to the title* I did say I was taking an alternative view :P I think I'm actually a little late for this one, lol, but I'm hoping the gluey goddesses will still be busy and will let this one slip in ;)
Haunted Design House - Beautiful beastly butterflies. Lol, this is one of only a couple of challenges for today in which my piece won't count as an alternative, it will fit right in :D
Daisy Doodles - anything goes
Flutterby Wednesday - open but must include a fairy butterfly or angel
Paperplay - Up in the air
Theme Thursday - beauty
4x4 Friday - wings
Paper Make Up - colour combo. My colours are darker and dirtier than the swatch, but the colours are all there, apart from the yellow :)
Stamp It Crazy - skulls
Challenge Up Your Life - recycling. I used the skull from a vintage medical text and digitally recycled it into the creature you see above.
Totally Gorjuss - wings
Lucy's Cards - digital
Pals Paper Arts - followed the sketch
Thanks for looking, and remember even dirt and dark can be beautiful :D
