I've spent a huge amount of time in the craft room this week - I've started drawing again and ugh, it's been so long I feel lost! But, it can only get better, right??
This week's challenge over at Haunted Design House is a Gothic Make Over - include a cute or non-scary image that has been made over in a Gothic manner.
First off, I am too old to be Goth - I am just the right age, however, to be totally Wave - which is the more colorful bastard daughter of Punk, I think, while Goth is the darker little brother.
Duran Duran was the hottest group around when I was growing up and I spent way too many of my teenaged years with John Taylor's bleached bangs, as well as Adam Ant's eyeliner issues and dating boys who wore more make-up than I did. I have to admit that even after all these years, a guy in eyeliner and mascara turns my head. Oh, along with ripped plaid held together by safety pins or the ever popular black fingernail polish. LOL!
Here's my card:
I used an adorable digi Dressy Edward from the Greeting farm for my main 'cute image'. Yes, he has a bit of eye make-up on - I can't help it!
He looks like he's making a wish to me, so I gave him a thought bubble full of Heads from Stampotique, fussy cut and mounted in a frame to go with his sentiment. I added a lonely little head behind Edward's leg so his dream of serial killing can come true. Hey, who are we to stand in the way of ambition?
It's a tad bottom heavy, but whenever I added something extra to the top, it was too busy. Thoughts?
I'm entering this little guy in a couple different challenges this week - several of them for the first time:
Haunted Design House (of course) - Gothic Make-Over
Crafty Creation Challenges - Frame It
Forever Night - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - No Pesky Girls Allowed
Southern Girls - All About Boys
Thanks for stopping by!
