Gargoyles Galore!!

Howdee-doodlee folks!

Hope you are all keeping well this fine and sunny (but cold) day here in bonny Scotland?
Yesterday was soooooo lovely I spent a fair while in the garden helping hubby trim the mahoosive hedge (I did the bottom half, I hate ladders!) If you like you can read about it here.

But today sees me here blogging the new theme for the next fortnight over on the 

Our next challenge is :
Gruesome Guardians
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Hallowe'en based art piece
using gargoyles, gryphons, dragons, leprechauns, fairies, etc.

We are looking for the beasts and creatures that protect or guard 
the pots of gold, the doorways to other worlds, Excalibur, 
or anything of value in the underworld, or days of myth and yore.

Please be sure and let us know in your post, what your creature guards 
or protects.

Some of you may remember last year the Gargoyle image I released. Well I have used it for my creation here too, and I have some new stuff released just this morning featuring some new Gargoyle Corner shapes.

This is a new Frame/Border I have made using the Corners below, and with an added architectural edge pattern, 

 Below is the new Corner Set,

 I have also designed a new set of papers, of which I used the black version on my make

Finally, here are a few photos of my make.
I kept it very simple, using just the black paper from the above set, the frame from above and my original Grotesque Gargoyle image. A bit of smudgy black ink, black card and some foam pads for layering up.

Very simple indeed - almost CAS, but not quite. lol

Right, don't think this will fit many challenges out there, but we'll have a go!
Catch ya later peeps!!
