Can Pink be Scarey??

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all well today? Not been swept away with all that rain down south I hope? About time someone else had it and not us up here in Scotland, LOL.

My card today is a bit of a pink number, but not in a very girly way, sorry! It is my entry into Barb's Haunted Design House challenge, which is 'Pink on the brink'. And here it is:

I have teamed the pink side of it with black, in an attempt to make it a bit spooky. Still looks a bit too sassy for me though. I have followed the layout from the sketch over at Midnight Madness, which I have turned on it's side:

For my image I came up with a new one which I have named 'Alas - Poor Yoric'. I think it fits the image quite well, in a non-Shakesperian sort of way! LOL. This is now available in the Delicious Doodles Shop. Also there is the 'Webby Corner' which I have overlaid onto my main image after colouring and scanning in. I have added some stickles to her hair, and some pinky-gold dimension paint (Pebeo Touch).

For the lacey part of the sketch I have made some holes in the card and threaded it with an old bootlace, and popped some black pearls between too. Rather than use ribbon at the top of the image I have cut some odd bone shapes. My flowery bit is handmade, and is just some old card bits cut into circles, scrunched up, inked and then linked together with a brad. I added some stickles to the edges too.

I am hoping this fits the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday - 'no dies or punches'. None of my shapes have been die cut or punched. I am also entering at Charisma Cardz, whose theme is 'Hot' this week - my pink is a Hot Pink colour. Hope this is acceptable?


Just thought I would also mention that I am having a DT Call over at Delicious Doodles. I need me some crafty peeps to help out with promoting my wee images, so if anyone is interested in applying, please pop over to Delicious Doodles for all the deets!

Many thanks in advance,
Teri xx
