Bare Bones

Well, helloooooo and Happy Monday folks!!

Hope it's lovely and sunny where you are, just like it is here. Bit chilly though, still down in the minus's overnight, bbbrrrrr.

It's time I popped a wee make on here, and I mean wee, lol
This make is for the DT inspiration on the Macabre Monday Challenge at HDH.
Our theme this fortnight is:


Clean and Simple folks - NO embellies or faffiness!

Not sure if mine qualifies for that though.
It IS very simple, it has NO embellies, but there are dp's, so I'm not too sure about the faffiness bit ... decide for yourselves, lol  !!

Anyroadup, here goes:
(loads of piccies, so be warned!)

I made me a wee ATC sized Zig-Zag booky wooky thingy.
Used loads of my wicked ladies images, including a brand new one that will be released into the shop on Wednesday! These have all been coloured with my watercolour pencils, then scanned and reduced in size before printing out.

Cover pages use my Rose & Thistle papers, and also the Swirly Heart Frame image. I cut out a bit of the pattern from the paper to use as a little pic to the top and bottom of the text, which was added before printing, and is a typeface called 'Metal Macabre'.

The papers on these pages are Snakeskin and Steampunk.
I have used the ladies Merry Hiss-mass and Steampunk Sally

The ladies below are Black Widow and Malice
Cobweb backing made from my Cobweb image repeated and resized. Leopard paper is one I bought in, can't remember where from now, sorry.

Papers on these next pages are Snakeskin and Cobweb one again.
Images are 'Dragon Dreams'
(new - to be released on Wednesday) and Voodoo Woman

Here we have that leopard paper, and the Steampunk one again, but in a different colour.

Lastly, here are a couple of views from different angles:

You still there? lol
Well was that CAS? I don't know, what do you think?

Hope you can join us this time on the Macabre Monday Challenge folks - see you there?

Not sure if I can find many challenges for this, but I'll have a go!
