It’s Friday! Busy day for me today… running to the Motorcycle Show in the city with the Husband and Boy. The Girl will be hangin’ with Grandmama. So, this will be a quickie post (I often say that, and it’s never true!)
Anyway, some of the chics over at Smeared and Smudged have mentioned Macabre Mondays. Macabre Mondays? Why have I not heard of this before??? Why am I not participating??? Well, I clicked on over to find out that it is just my type of challenge blog! I am so stoked that I know about it! Halloween all the time? Uh, a big Hell yeah to that, thank you very much! Yeah… this post is already getting long!
So this week’s challenge is Fallen Angel. Cool. Should be pretty easy for me right? Wrong! I have some pretty awesome wings… but no “body” good enough to put them on! Then I remembered this sick stamp I have from Stampers Anonymous, that looks pretty at first, but al I usually see is creepy and gothic…
I love this stamp. So many ideas for it… I used a few types of markers for it, some EK Watercolor Markers, Sakura Stardust (in 2 colors), Ranger’s White Opaque Pen… And of course I added some Black Gold Glimmer Mist and some Black Diamond Stickles.
You can see the glimmer and glitz much better in this pic. Click on any photo to see it bigger! See the flecks in the black paper? Glimmer Mist baby! The sheen in the wings is from the Stardust pens.
And this fab paper is sadly from a company that no longer exists… But you can make it yourself with glossy paper and alcohol inks! So that’s my card. And, as I type this, I am clonking myself on the head because I just now realized that I can make a layout of my fave Fallen Angel. No… I won’t tell you who it is… But if you KNOW me… like really know me… you should be able to figure it out. So, now add another “to do” on my huge list, ‘cause now I hafta make this page!!! Oi! Wish me luck! But until then, just enjoy the macabre beauty of this card! Peace!
