Bare Bones

Hiya folks!

Hope you are all well and had a good weekend? Yesterday was spent in the kitchen cooking the sunday roast, can't believe it took me three hours! Why? The darned element in the fan oven popped again, so now I am without my oven!! Luckily I have a Combination Oven/Microwave too, so I spent all that time putting one thing at a time in there and roasting it. What a pain!!

Anyway, today sees another new theme over at Macabre Monday, and we want to see your Bare Bones! Yup, we are going CAS this time, rather difficult me thinks, and I almost did it! lol

"Bare Bones"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that uses NO dimensional embellishments. That's right.
No rhinestones, no pearls, no ribbons, no chipboard.
Pretty much a clean and simple layout. It doesn't have to be
a single layer card, but no bumpy bits.

Ooopsies, I have a few bumpy bits on mine - but I got carried away and forgot all about it being CAS, added the pearls and let the glue dry. I WAS going to add some gems too, and then I remembered the 'no embellies' bit - bother, and I couldn't take the blooming pearls off by then! Anyroadup, here is what I made:

 It's not an ATC, or a card, or anything in particular just now.

The image is a new one for Halloween and is part of a little range of images I am creating named the 'Halloweenies' this one is 'Vamp'. This one will be available in the shop on Wednesday, along with some other stuff. In case you wondered, it's meant to be a girl with ponytails in the shape of batwings. Hmmm, didn't really work there properly did it? lol

It is coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned and printed then fussy cut for layering. I stuck it on some glittery purple card, then on a frame I made with a MS punch set. THEN I went and added them blummin' pearls - DOH !!

Hope you guys can do better than I did with the Clean and Simple look!

She is awesome teri, and the colour up works really well, green and purple really work so well together.
I hope the beatings we give you for the pearls wont hurt to much ;) xxxx
