SISC69: Goin’ Goth! Plus, Sweet Gothic Kids Christmas Preview Day 5: Tilly

It’s a big day! A fang-tastic new StampInsanity challenge is up, and I have another Simply Betty Stamps preview to share with you!

This week’s StampInsanity challenge is Goin’ Goth! What could be better?!?! For this challenge, I used one of my favorite SI images, Lilith.

I kept it looking kind of unfinished on purpose. Goth is creepy, gets you thinking… I wanted it to look like the story may or may not be finished here.

I colored Lilith with my watercolor markers. I think she came out pretty rad. If you click on any of my pics, you can get a bigger, better view.

I obviously didn’t want to go with all black for this card. Too obvious for me. I wanted those pops of color to be unexpected and surprising. I love this paper I have on the left side. It’s so soft and fibrous. It tears beautifully. I “stitched” on top of it with black Stickles. I am really happy with the end result.

On to something…cuter. ;) It’s time to meet Reindeer Tilly. Who I think may be my favorite image from this Simply Betty release (though it’s really tough to choose!).

Isn’t she adorable? I know…I don’t use “adorable” on my blog much…but how could you resist her? And look…she’s got a teeny spider on her ear!

Tilly, unlike Lilith, was colored entirely with my pencils. There’s a lot of layering goin’ on here, and I couldn’t be happier with how she turned out.

My sentiment is from Tattered Angels. I kept this card (like some of the others I’ve shown this week) non-Christmas-y. I wanted you to see the versatility of these fab images.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Ward 2 gals of StampInsanity.
