Eerie Elegance

Hello all.

Hope everyone is well? Hope your weather is better where you are and you can get outside without the wellies! Rather grey and damp up here, not too chilly though

I finally got round to finishing up a couple of images this weekend, after weeks and weeks of faffing about. Feels good to get something completed!
One of the finished images was the corner piece I have used for my Macabre Monday make.
This will go into the shop on Wednesday along with a new Fairy image.

Our theme this week over at Macabre Monday then is:

"Eerie Elegance"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that depicts elegance in it's most strangest of forms.
You know the style we're talking about. That strange and bizarre, yet
captivating and intriguing bit of oddness. Classy, but not really
fit for human consumption. Yeah, that's it.

'Skull's 'n' Roses Corner':

And here is the new image all coloured, scanned, fussy-cut and layered. Teamed up with my 'Love's Faded Memory' image, also layered just the once.

The backing paper is of some roses that I have stored on the compy. I changed the colour to suit my card, and then printed it with the first layer of my corner image.
The frame is a lovely die, with added gold metallic rub-on. A nice big bow, recycled from another project, and some black pearls to complete the card.

And a slightly different angle to see the layers better:

So there you have it folks!

Hope you get to find some time to join in with us this week!
