From the bone pile!
This week's Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted Design House blog is to make a dark, gothic or Halloween project using only scraps and leftover bits. Now this presents a dilemma when you do digi work because you don't end up with leftover pieces of paper. However much you use, you still have a completely full sheet left. So, I've tried to join in by only using small pieces of paper on my project. Lots of one inch squares and one 2 inch by 6 inch piece. The papers are all by Crafty Chaos Designs and the image is by Simply Betty Stamps.
These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
The Pixie Cottage - sketch and/or Outdoor Fun
Do It With Digis - monochromatic
Simply Betty Stamps - use your favourite Emo image from any category. Wow, it's been tough, but I finally decided that my favourite Halloween Emo image is this Devil Rio (lots of my favourites are Rios, so you may see some more soon)
Making Halloween Cards - use tags and/or a tall card base
Crafty Sentiments - monochromatic
Meljen's Designs - stripes and/or plaid
And, last but by no means least, two challenges that want to see embossing. I played about with a digi technique that gives the same effect and (hopefully) made her trident stand out by colouring it silver and then making it look slightly 3D. Not sure if this will count or not.
The Secret Crafter - embossing
Bling It On - embossing
