Necro Neckwear

This week's Macabre Monday challenge over at the Haunted Design House blog has a fab new sponsor; Kasket Kustom. She makes beautiful darkside wearables, and this week is your chance to get your very own design made into a pendant for you to cherish. All you have to do is to create a piece of art that could be made into a pendant. You don't need to have fancy-schmancy art skills (see my piece :P) just the inspiration to create something beautiful you could wear around your neck. Have a look at the shop for inspiration, some of the pieces are quite simple in design but stunning in their colours and accents. So come on, put away your stamps and create something original with a macabre twist.
I used a kitty I drew a while back, gave him a ribcage and a heart and then put him on some paper from the Broken Dreams set at Crafty Chaos Designs. I created a barb wire frame in PSP and voila! Yeah, ok, mine's nothing special but go have a look at what the other Minions have created. I figure their job is to inspire you with beautiful creations and mine is to encourage you by showing you items that you can easily do better than :P
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Getting Crafty with Ann - animals
Sparkles Forum Challenge - metal
Pattie's Creations - anything but a card
Aud Sentiments - no sentiment

I felt like being mono :P

Time for some colour!

We have a fun colour challenge for you this week at Corrosive Challenges; you are to use turquoise and pink as the main colours in your creation. I created several papers in different shades of those colours to use, and kept on finding that they just weren't "right" So then I created a paper that was fully turquoise and decided to use pink matting layers, and I'm rather pleased with the way it turned out :) We're sponsored by Queen Kat Designs this month, so be sure to enter each week to increase your chances of winning.
