Necropolitan Eye Scream

Hello lovely crafty people.
It's time once again for another blog post to let you know what I've been up to :-)
I'm loving little ATC's at the moment, so I thought why not do some more?
I got this great little image from Arti Doodles called Eye Scream.  I printed it three times and coloured them up with my fab promarkers in three different colour schemes to represent my version of Necropolitan (Neapolitan) ice cream.

I once again couldn't resist playing with the Frantage, colour on this one is Aged Scarlet and promarkers used were Maroon, Trick Or Treat and Peony

Frantage on this one is Aged Teal and the promarkers were Surf Blue, Duck Egg and Cool Aqua

Then on this one the Frantage is Aged Wine and the promarkers were Plum Preserve, Spring Lilac and Orchid.  
These ATC's all started out as black pearlescent cardstock that was die cut into shape with a nestie, then to finish off I've used one of my favourite new dies from Impression Obsession, this little cobweb and spider.  They too were coloured with promarkers to match the project.  I guess reasonable simple but hopefully effective :-)
All that remains is for me to link up my projects to these awesome challenge blogs that you NEED to check out.  One of my favourites is Left Of Center, their theme for this week is 3 Of A Kind and I think my Necropolitan Eye Scream should fit in nicely ;-)
Then we have Forever Dark 2 with Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge has a theme of To Die For and I think I got that covered
Then last but not least is Dream In Darkness with more Anything Goes
Please check out these challenge blogs, they are just awesome xx

An ATC.......don't mind if I do

I've recently been on a "trying something different quest" with my crafty projects.
I came across a challenge blog called Wicked Wednesday ATC and thought that I'd give it a go seeing as I'm on a bit of a roll.
Their theme this week is "Stitching Real or Faux"
I went for "Faux Stitching" around the edge of my ATC with a white gel pen.  I used kraft cardstock mounted on to black cardstock and used Aged Teal Frantage around the outside edge too.

The image I chose for this project is Howlin Helen from The Goblyn Workshop, she was coloured with my promarkers, using Cool Greys 1-5 and a hint of Powder Blue for her flesh.
This little project also fits in nicely with this months challenges at Haunted Design House whose theme is "I Love Rock And Roll" inspiration came from "Warlock - Burning The Witches".
Then finally Dream In Darkness, which of course is "Anything Goes"

To finish off this little ATC I die cut a spider web from Impression Obsession and decorated with cosmic shimmer Graceful Mint twinkles.  Ta dah.
Thanks for dropping by, please come back again soon. xx

Tag Team

Good evening crafters
Blog time is a little overdue for me I must say, I can't believe I didn't get chance to do a post last week :-(  What's more surprising is that yet again I have done something other than a card.
I have some yummy tags to share with you this week, and the first place I'm heading with them is over to Left Of Centre............I was mostly upset that I missed them last week.  There current challenge theme is Tic Tac Toe.

I took the diagonal line of Die Cut, Ribbon & Eyelet.
The tags are craft card and have been spritzed with purple cosmic shimmer mist and I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo 
 The images I chose this time are from Kenny K, he's got some great digi's.

I went for a purple theme and as usual I coloured them up with my super promarkers. 
I also added some metal embellishments, a few sticky gems and some blobs of stickles on the die cut foliage from Joy
As these images are quite sassy, I'm also joining in The Corrosive Challenge for the first time, there theme this time around is Hot Hot Hot...........I hope it doesn't disappoint

Thank you for stopping by and looking at my creations, I hope you've been inspired as I often am inspired from visiting other crafty blogs too.
See you again soon xx
