Freakers Free For All

Hiya folks!

Happy Monday morning to you all. Hope you are all coping with the flurry of snow you had down south? (UK) We managed to miss out for a change up here in NE Scotland, phew! Lovely and sunny today. Let's hope it stays that way for a while and we all get to catch up on some much needed vitamin D!!

OK, so Monday is Macabre Monday Challenge Day, and this week is an anything goes one:

"Freaker's Free-for-All"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
with no restrictions.
That's right... the Mistress has been slacking, so everyone gets to benefit with a laid-back, no-holes-barred, do-WTF-ever-you-want challenge!

Not one to use the same image twice (very often) I just had to do something new for it. Which unfortunately made get a bit behind with my schedule, so I was a wee bit late adding my piccie to the challenge post, but it's there now folks! And here it is:

The first new image I designed is Raven Goddess (coloured with graphite pencil), followed by Celtic Raven Corner. I have also used an older image for the frame, Celtic Frame2.
Here is a close-up of the Raven Goddess:

I used spotty textured bazzill for the main backing, no dp's today! Mounted onto some pearlescent purple cardstock and made into an easel card. The corners are punched with an MS loopy punch. I have added some purple brads in a few corners, and dug my black feathers out of the cupboard too! Here is the Celtic Raven Corner:

 Oh deary me, this last photo is a bit blurry! Not good. Camera must have focused on something other than what I was looking at. . . Anyroadup, I have no links to the images yet, as they will be going into the Delicious Doodles Shop on Wednesday, so keep your eyes peeled for them peeps!

Going to be a funny kind of day today. I have both my girls home from school, one with a sore throat, the other with an upset tummy, so it's going to be interesting to say the least. Just hope I don't catch both at the same time. . .!

Right, lets see if I can find some challenges to fit this in then.

Fab card and love that image.

Lucky you missing the snow - we normally get missed by all the weather systems here as we have our own micro-climate, but this time it's hit us full on :(

Still what better excuse to stay in and play with paper???
