Black Rose Fairy, Version 1 ; HDH023: Darkside Bride

Ok, after putting up so many posts this week, I’m in for a real quickie right now! I made this with one of my latest and greatest stamps from Sweet Pea, it’s the Black Rose Fairy.


I also made her with the Haunted Design House’s latest Macabre Monday Challenge in mind… Darkside Bride. Doesn’t she look like a blushing bride waiting for her vampire husband to be???


Mixed media again here… Colored Pencils, Twinkle H2O’s and a dab of chalk.


And this bride just HAD to get her Glitz on! Glitz Stickles in Tiara, of course! Ok, really, no more time to chat! Have a fang-tastic day!
