Homage to Hammer

How ya doin' folks?

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Sparing my thoughts for all my American blogging/facebooking buddies with that nasty oncoming storm. Hope you all get through it in one piece!!

Also thinking of a little old man MISSING in the FOCHABERS area since yesterday!! Apparently he was out with a walking group and just vanished. He's in his 80's and has some type of dementia. I really hope they find him soon!!

Right. On to my post for today, in which I have actually MADE something!! Woo-hooooo!!
This is my DT posting for Macabre Monday, and this time we are paying homage!

"Hammer House of Horror"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that is a tribute to Hammer Films

I can't profess to have seen every singly movie brought out by these guys, but I did rather enjoy watching the Dracula ones with Christopher Lee. It was this collection of movies that got me into Vampires and 'the dark side' of things! So naturally I just HAD to do me a sketch of the man himself. And I even got round to popping him on a card front:

It's not a full card. I don't send cards very often, especially with gothic/dark subject matter, so I just make the frontages now. Saves a bit on card costs too!! lol

So, I made me a dp using my Cobweb image, added some 'blood splatter' in photoshop, printed it and put that on some red cardstock. Then I made the frame with a spellbinders die, and put that on some more of the same card and trimmed it to fit. I added some gems for a bit of bling.

Mr Lee was sketched, scanned and printed for layering, and then placed on the top of the frame. Last thing was to add some black pearls to the four corners.

And there you have it, quite a simple make!

Right, off to do some chores. Might even offer my services in the search for the missing guy.

I'll be back later to add some challenges.

RIP - Remembrance

Howdeeedoodleee folks!

Welcome to a lovely Monday morning (NOT) it's pi**ing down with rain and hail, black as the ace of spades out there, and I have to take the dog out in it. Mmmmm, nice.

Anyhows, today sees the start of a new theme at HDH Macabre Monday, and it's all about:

"Rest In Peace"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that has anything to do with cemeteries, coffins, headstones, or funerals.
Any and all things resting in peace. Or pieces...

I kinda blew it with this one, not scarey enough really. I used my graveyard image last week for another make, so I couldn't very well use it again two weeks in a row now could I?
So I went with another new image released the other day, 'Remembrance':

 This is a frontage. I haven't stuck it to anything, so I could use it for a card, or make a picture out of it, or a wall hanging. I have used a couple of Nestabilities dies from a new set I bought on Saturday - yes, I went craft shopping!! First time in blooming ages!! Managed to keep it under £50 too - amazing!!

 My Remembrance image is coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned in and printed for fussy cutting and layering up with foam pads. Ta-da, job done. Took long enough though!! So much deciding what paper to use. Gave up in the end and stayed with blank cardstock.

So there you have it folks. Not too scarey this time!! lol
Hope you all have a great day. I'm away to go and get soaked, ugh!

Some challenges I am entering -

Craft Punked - Deepest Sympathy (hope this one fits)
Inspire Me Friday - Anything Goes
Simply Create - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Dies/Punches

A Couple of New Images

Helllooooooo folks!

How ya all keepin' then? Hope all is well in your neck of the woods?! We didn't get all the rain that was expected so not so many floods round here, river is high though but the rain has stopped for now.

I released a couple of new images into the Delicious Doodles Shop this week, one on Wednesday as usual, and one yesterday after being badgered by my facebook ladies! lol. So I thought I'd pop by and show you them here.

First up, the one I released yesterday ready for November's Remembrance Day makes.

And then, one last quick image for Halloween, although you could use it any time of the year if you are into the Goth scene! lol.

Spooky huh? tee-hee!

Hope to see a few makes using these images!

Bats in the Belfry

Hiya folks!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend? Ours was spent frustratingly trying to get some new techno stuff to work on the compy. Some of the time it works, but other times it won't have it. Blame the hubby - he put it on there!! LOL

I did manage to jump on and work up my DT piece for Macabre Monday at Haunted Design House. This week we are all going a bit batty:

"Bats in the Belfry"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that has anything to do with a bats.  Think belfries, church steeples and all round general battiness!

I have created a new scene for this week's theme. This will be going in my shop just as soon as I have finished working on the lines a bit more. Although I did cheat with this make and coloured in a version of it that isn't finished properly.
The image is called 'The Graveyard':

 Like I said, I printed it out unfinished and shaded with a graphite pencil and a black waterclour pencil. That's all I did to it, then scanned it back in and printed it three times for my layers.

 Here is a close-up piccie:

Nice and spooky for ya! And hopefully just in time for Halloween too!!
Now to just get the thing finished up and ready for sale!

Some Challenges -

Crafty Calendar - All Things Spooky
Polka Doodles - Things with Wings (Bats)
Poodles Parlour - Halloween
Craft Us Crazy - Halloween/Anything Goes
MAWTT - In The Dark
Quoth the Raven - Anything Goes

Creepy Cryptids

Hellllooooooo folks!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was spend 'under the weather' with a self-inflicted pub related ailment - me BAD, lol. All better now though.

I managed to whizz up this card front to show for today's new theme at Macabre Monday, which this time is all about:

"Creepy Cryptids"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that has something to do with a creature or plant whose existence has been suggested but is unrecognized by scientific consensus and often regarded as highly unlikely!  Think Loch Ness Monster, Yeti, even Faeries.

Yeah, well. I went with a Mermaid, and one with attitude too! lol

This is a brand new image, due for release into the Delicious Doodles Shop on Wednesday.
It is called, 'Mermaid's Revenge'.
I coloured her in with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned into the compy and printed for my fussy cut layers. The frame is a spellbinders one which I added lots of little gems to. This was layered onto pearlescent purple card and then I cut round the frame so you can't see the edges. Then I layered that onto textured purple card, then popped it all onto some black Kanban card with a lovely damask pattern on.

A bit of glittery stickles, ribbon, bow and some more gems and the job was done. Took me long enough mind you. I just couldn't decide on my colours for the cardstock!!

Hope you all have a great day!
