Spooky, yet Romantic and FREEBIE BASH last day!

Hiya folks!

It's a great start to the weekend here in NE Scotland, if a little blustery. But at least the sun is shining (for now!)

I have a wierd sort of offering for you today. It's a bit girly, a bit Goth, a bit romantic and spooky all rolled into one! LOL. 'Why?' you ask. Well, it's all Barb's fault, our Menacing Mistress of the Macabre over at Haunted Design House that is. Her challenge this week is to make a project using three images - yes - three!! AND she and her minions bestowed upon me the awesome title of 'Mistress of the Macabre' for the month of July - cheers ladies! So here I am with my card for this challenge:

Naturally I have used my own Delicious Doodles images (no surprise there then!) I have had the main image 'Love's Faded Memory' drawn up for a few weeks - but I forgot to upload it to the shop!! I've put that right now, so it's available for any of you spooky peeps who are interested! LOL. I have also used another new image 'Webby Corner' which I have overlaid onto the main image in various sizes and in two colours.

I added a splash of colour to the rosebud which matches my colour scheme of Purple and Black (again, no surprise there!) and some stickles round the frame before layering onto purple core-dinations. This has been raised too for a bit of depth. My layout follows the sketch over at Creative Inspirations, sorry ladies if you were expecting something cute and fluffy, LOL!!

At The Pink Elephant this week the theme is to use 'Ribbon and Sparkle'. There is some ribbon behind the main image, some black and purple organza from the stash. I have also added as the third image my little 'BAT-erfly', coloured in with watercolour pencils, scanned and printed for layering. That's the handy thing with digi's - you can resize them to suit your project.

These digi's fit the challenge over at Stamp Something this week, as they require 'Digi's' this time. Yep, that's what I do!! And at Stamping for the Weekend there is an 'Anything Goes' theme, so I am entering here too. Another challenge I am entering this in is a new one on the block, Craft Your Days Away who's theme this week is 'Wings'. Again, sorry for the spooky theme ladies - my wings are on the BAT-erfly.

I was going to enter a couple of other challenges that had a butterfly theme, but I figured my Bat-erfly wouldn't quite fit in there, LOL. Never mind - I think I have enough to go on with here! tee-hee! See ya later peeps!

Beautiful card. The colours are my favourites: purple and black. And the Bat-erfly is great - at first I didn't realised that it was fantasy creature. The card itself is very romantic but with this little twist that shows how bittersweet love can be. Btw: the tiny fangs of the skull and the white cobwebs made my imagination spin and brought ideas of vampires died in sunlight into my mind.
