Oh So Goth!!

Hiya folks!!

I'm here today with ANOTHER make!! Yes indeedy! Two in one week, can't be bad, lol

Well, I just HAD to do this one, as I sooooo love Gothic style stuff, and I HAVE just released a load of Gothic inspired frame/corner/paper/images into the Delicious Doodles Shop!!!

You may have noticed my Gothic Fairy -

Isn't she just gorgeous?? Well, I love her anyway, but then, I would say that wouldn't I?? lol
 I have now added:-

All of the above form part of my new Gothic Collection!

There will be more items added to it, as and when I get round to doing them! But for the moment these are it!
AND I actually made a sample card using most of them, here it is:

I made a twisted easel card using some gold cardstock for the base shape, and some of the Rose+Thistle Papers for my dp's. Behind the image is the Rose+Thistle Frame.

 There is a lovely black lacey trim behind the frame/image, and I cut a couple of corners using my spellbinders fleur-de-lys die set.
Below is a piccie of the base, where I added some punched flowers/leaves.

Here is a close-up view of the Gothic Fairy image. She was coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned and printed multiple times for the layers.

And here is a close-up view of the hand-tied bow I made, along with the big dangly charm I also made. This was done using remnants of jewellery bits and a few beads I had lying about. The ribbon I used here has been recycled from Xmas, as it was originally used to tie some PJ's together!

Phew - you still with me?? lol

That took me TWO days to make, in between other stuff mind you.
Now I shall probably be another fortnight making the next thing! lol. Seems to take forever to make anything these days, what with my designing, and 'proper paid job'. Makes take a bit of a sideline! (sigh)

Ack, well. Off to find some challenges to enter.
