I'M A SPONSOR :-D

Hello Peeps,
This week I am co-sponsoring {PIN}SPIRATIONAL CHALLENGES #55 and this is the pic that is for inspiration.
                                                
Isn't she so sweet ???!!
I gave the Team 2 DT some images to play with  - Snow White, Alice and KT Swing -and they have made some beautiful creations.
The Challenge runs from 30 April - 6 May and the Prize from me is 5 Digis from my SHOP.

It would be lovely if you popped over and left the Girls some LUV and maybe played along with them too. You have to admit the picture is so lovely and the colours are a definite {pin}spiration :-D

See you later xxxx

ERIC NEEDS A 'LITTLE WOMAN'

Gosh - I nearly forgot my entry for the literary challenge over at THE HOUSE OF BEARS - April Book Challenge. This month the book concerned is "Little Women"  by Louisa May Alcott, and the Bears were kind enough to give us a list of quotes from the book to use as our inspiration.

I have done a bit of dark humour using one of my digis, I loving call 'ERIC' and I am sure he is definitely in need of a little woman.....bwaahahahahaha !!!!!



I thought this quote from The Bears choices was pretty apt for the look on his face :-D 
I made him a hand embossed 'brain' background for inside the card and smurged it with red,pink,  green and black inks to make it look 'brainy'.

Well - that's it... I'm off now for coffee.
Byeeeee xxxx

Challenges I am entering:

Craft Your Passion Challenge #160 - Well Read.... add text
Crafty Boots Challenges - Use a Character

MACABRE MONDAY HDH166 - STEPHEN KING NIGHTMARE

Well good morning Peeps and welcome to Macabre Monday a la HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE.
This Challenge is all about creations inspired by the works of Stephen King...... love him, read them all, absolutely fabbo, so I simply had to play along with this one :-D

For my creation I decided upon "PET CEMETERY" and have used my own digi 'POE CAT' (available in my Shop). I also added a small pikkie of the man himself in the corner. Then I cut a grave scene fence with Silhouette and put that in front. It's a little hard to see coz everything's black, but it is there. The quote is from the advert for the book :-)

Please drop by HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE.... if you dare..... and see the gorgeous creations the other Minions have to scare you with - hahahahaha !!!
Catch you later xxxxxxxxxxxxx

GLITTER AND GORE

Hello Sunday Peeps,
Here is my piece I have made for the Glitter & Gore Challenge over at SMUDGY ANTICS. I have been having a bit of a creative block recently but got inspired last night and this one has come out quite well. I have used 'MoonStruck' from the Movie Madness range by SMEARED INK (drawn by me :-D) and a couple of heads from the 'Gross Anatomy' set.
I coloured her digitally and then printed her 4 times and fussy cut for 3D effect. I used glitter on my moon and on parts of the sky. I coloured the heads using Copics.





Here's a closer one trying to show the glitter on the moon !! I think you can just about see it, but if I use too much flash it bounces off. Glitter is a bit of a bugger to try and photograph and it definitely don't scan !!! :-D 


I made up a sentiment and smurged some red ink over it for a draggy blood type effect for added gore :-D
I am hoping I will get my Mojo back soon as everything is such a bloomin' struggle just now :-(
Anyhoo, thanks for looking and I'll see you later xxxx

Challenges I am entering:

Smudgy Antics - Glitter & Gore
Alphabet Challenge - F is for Fantasy (well I wouldn't want her in my 'real' world, would you ?!!)
Jelly Park Challenges - Make us laugh or smile (well - how about a little dark humour ??)
Papercrafting Journey - Use a Sentiment 
Sara Hurley Challenge #79 - Projects With Character

Since Spring is allegedly coming for most of you !!! .... I decided to have a Spring theme to my creation.
I coloured 'Jack' digitally in some 'Springy' type colours... well for him anyways..... and he is in his world together with some skellie sheep and flowers from the 'Killer Bo Peep' set by SMEARED INK.
The other side is of course the 'normal' world with gay Spring flowers and frolicking lambies .. alias 'Mr Wool' from SCRIBBLES DESIGNS. Little do they know of the strange creepy alternate Spring world symbiotically existing beside them !!! bwaahahahaha LoL

MACABRE MONDAY AT HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE - HDH164

Good Morning and welcome to Week 2 of HDH164 - "BARE BONES/CAS" (Clean & Simple) Challenge over at HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE.
Inevitably I always struggle with CAS - always want to pile more stuff on there LoL  I have used a new digi I drew over the weekend. It is coloured digitally and the backgrounds are from Crafty Chaos  'Lair of The Beast' set. The frame is digital as well so this is a totally flat piece. I haven't named my new digi yet as I am still 'tweaking'...... I can never quite leave them alone - there's always something else I see/feel the need to change LoL I was thinking of something like "Put your face on, we're going out"  hahahaha !!!

I hope you will come over and play and see what the other Minions of the Dungeon have made for your inspiration.
See you later :-D  xxx
