Two DT cards for today!
Firstly is the Macabre Monday Challenge over at Haunted Design House, and this week Barb has made a Butchered Blueprint (sketch) for you. We're sponsored by Limited Runs, who have some wonderfully offbeat and creepy digis available, and all the DT got to work with them. My piece uses Mushroom 1 and Grimm Dolls 1 and 2, peeking out from nehind. You know the sond The Teddy Bear's Picnic? Well, many years ago, one little boy crept into the woods disguised as a log. He thought this was a very clever idea, because it meant he could lie on the ground and not get tired while waiting to see the cute bears at their picnic. He went out and laid down and settled himself in to wait. But it was a warm day, and he was comfortable, and the birds and the insects provided such a calming background noise, that he soon fell asleep. When he woke, many hours later, it was already dark, and there was no more sound of birds. But there was a faint squelchy sound coming from behind a nearby clump of mushrooms. The little boy saw faces peering out! He was so scared he didn't stay and investigate but ran straight home, and spent the rest of the night shivering in his bed, hoping the horrible squelching trolls wouldn't be able to find him. Now the young boy is an old man, and he keeps this picture in his house, to warn everyone to stay away from the woods after dark!
These are the challenges I made it for:
Art on the Dark Side - bats
Treehouse Thursday Challenge - old olive, ivory plus optional other colour. Now, for some reason I had this in my head as old olive and vanilla, so my "ivory" shade is much creamier than would normally be the case.
Rainbow Lady - make a picture. The mushrooms, bats and dolls are all seperate images put together by yours truly.
Darkness Inspiration - trolls
DezinaWorld Spot Prize - song, dance, music. (Teddy Bear's Picnic) And don't forget that there's a great challenge going on at DezinaWorld at the minute, where EVERYONE wins!
Crafty Creations - fables and fairy tales. Is Teddy Bear's picnic a fable or fairy tale? Well, sort of, hopefully it's close enough to count :P
Stamptacular Sunday - CASE one of the DT. I chose to be inspired by Karita's lovely Christmas card, and used a similar colour scheme and layout with the image on one side and a long unframed text on the other.
Aly's Sunday Challenge - music (Teddy Bear's Picnic)
There She Goes - create a scene
Craft Your Passion - double up (I went for two corner cobwebs)
AND, I also won the sketch challenge at Fairy Moon Crafts recently and was offered the chance to be a Guest Designer there for a month! Such a lovely group of ladies and fab sketches to work with; how could I say no? Although I almost wish I had, since there's a glorious prize on offer this week and now I can't win it :P Hop on over and get entering for your chance to win :D This is my piece using the current sketch, the image here is by Tickled Pink.
And here are the challenges that I had in mind for this one:
For Fun challenges - metal (I went for a charm)
Catch the Bug - anything goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - square cards
Meljen's Designs - use three different shapes (oval, rectangle and square)
Some Odd Girl - use a digi to create a background. I snipped the skul from her hair and repeated it over the pink bp.
Lil Lolita Boutique - black white and one other colour
Lexi's Creations - anything goes
Craft Your Passion - double up (I know I've entered both cards, just pick whichever. On this one I've gone for a double sentiment
City Crafter Challenge - use a digi
