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!!

Wicked cool! Billy Idol was my first concert in Seattle, WA at the tender age of 13. He was touring with Black Flag at the time! His song "White Wedding" was/is still one of my all time favorites. This is what your ATC brought to my mind. Love the chain and charm! Thanks for sharing!
