Here is my entry for the TIO challenge this week, set for us by guest Elizabeth of The Crafty Robin blog. The theme is under the moon's shadow, and she wants us to have a moon somewhere. Her tag is beautiful, so have a look... I will enter it at Think Monday Think ATC, where the theme is triptych. I have also entered it at Tellens Place, where the theme is simply, ATC.
I joined 3 pieces together with watercolour paper, at ATC size, so the triptych would open and close. I coloured with distress inks and overstamped with layers of different textures. The pictures are from a Crafty Individuals pad and the front is my darkroom door, door stamp (I have some more coming, yey!!!)

Over at Tellens Place the challenge theme this time is "All about You" ... there are some great DT pieces so do go have a look. I decided to take it literally and do a piece which summed some of me up!!!
sometimes oblivious (eyes wide shut!!)
bright but darker round the edges
and so on!!! I used a cube and blossom from Judikins, butterflies from Elusive images, words and swirls from UMount and Crafty Individuals, the crown from Tim Holtz and bubbles from Aspects of Design from Tracey's alluring ladies plate. It was all coloured with promarkers and distress inks - what a surprise - and much of it was embossed with clear ep, meltdust on this occasion.... Anyone recognise me???
Thanks for looking...

I noticed that they have a challenge at Wednesday Stamper, about trees. I have had a dark image in my head for a while, so I decided to carry it out and enter it for their challenge this week. I used a Judikins tree, moon, field of sky and cube and basically sapphire blue and soot black distress inks, with a touch of pinks and browns... The birds are from a Kodomo set, which I love to use. Hope this fits the bill over at WS!! Thanks for looking

Here is my first piece created directly for this blog, and I am going to enter it into a challenge at Macabre Monday on Haunted Design House blog. It's a free choice of something creepy or gothic, so I am letting myself in gently!!! I hope the community there like it. I shall also enter it into the challenge of The Three Muses, where the theme is blackbird... should fit right in I hope . I LOVED doing it, not just because I am crafting again, but because it is so different...
On shiny card, I stamped and overstamped with Darkroom Door, UMount, Crafty Individuals,Wendie Rhodes, Judikins, Hero Art and Aspect of Design. I used archival jet black and chipped sapphire under clear Meltdust, then coloured with the TH tool in forest moss, walnut stain, black soot and crushed olive. The colours are rich and deep.
