Nice Day for a White Wedding

Hiya folks!

Got ya singing that Billy Idol song now have I? lol
That's the sentiment I chose to use when thinking up what to make for my DT piece at Haunted Design House this fortnight. And the theme  is:

Astrological Atrocities
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Hallowe'en 

based art piece that is somehow directly and obviously inspired by
the signs of the Zodiac or Astrology.

And guess what - I am the sponsor with my Delicious Doodles Shop, and am offering up a pretty nifty prize for one lucky winner!
One WHOLE set of my Horrorscope images - that's 13 images for one lucky so-and-so!! LOL
Well, it IS Delicious Doodles Birthday this weekend, so what the heck! Totally forgot about that until I took the dog out for walkies this morning. Bit late now to organise a blog hop, so I think a Sale will have to take place at the weekend don't you?

So for my make I used my Horrorscope - Virgo digi

I have her reaching for her hubby out of a spellbinders frame, cut from black card and smeared with silver rub-on stuff. This is layered onto white card which I got inky all over.

Backing paper is also from my store: 'Rose and Thistle Papers'. This is the white version, printed extremely faintly, and then smudged with black ink.

My charm is hand made using a gothic style charm and a couple of larger loops from my beady jewellery bits, a bit of chain and a couple of clips. This is then hooked onto another loop, and threaded through the know of a hand made bow. The bow is white organza which has been smudged with black ink too.

You may not notice it but I have also hacked at the ends of the ribbon to make them look frayed.

I did the same card backing for some white lace trim, and inked that up as well so it all looks a bit grey and decayed.

Above is a close-up version of the Virgo image.

So there ya have it!
I am still working on some of the images for this set, and also the more 'normal' Zodiac set I am doing for my not-so-dark fans! lol
Busy - busy!! Hope to have them all done soon - I'm pooped!!
