Host From Hell!

Friday, 2 August 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all well,  I can't believe the change in the weather!  I was sitting in my house the other night, shivering!  A few weeks ago I thought I'd never feel cold again! lol!  I should've known, this is Ireland!
Parts of Ireland have even been on tornado watch!  I've seen pictures of tornadoes from all over Ireland but I haven't seen one myself, and they're only wee ones, so don't cause any/much damage.  It still makes my hair stand on end thinking about them though after what happened my friend in the US.

Anyway,  a new challenge today for you from Punkyougirl!  And it's my turn to host!  We have a fab sponsor this month in the form of Delicious Doodles!

They're offering 4 digi's to one lucky winner!

So our challenge for this month is...

Dark Humour!

Show us the light side of your dark side!  Remember that we are a dark themed challenge but that doesn't mean you can't have some fun!

Here's what I made using an image provided by our fab sponsor:

The image is called Mermaids Revenge and I coloured her with the following copics:  Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E30,29,YR16,14. Tail; YG97,95,93,91. Sand; YR24,23,21,Y26,23,21. Grass; YG85,67. Etc; BG49,45,R39,37,BV31,23,N5,E40,C4,0.

The papers I've used are from Basic Greys Eerie paper pad.  The sentiment is computer generated and the free font is called Chiller!  I used a Viva Pearl pen in Anthracite for the black pearls.
I distressed everything with black soot distress ink.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The grass is just made from thinly cut strips of card.

The inside basically matches the front with another computer generated sentiment.

So that's my card, please pop over to the Punkyougirl blog to check out what the other DT cards are like and have a go yourself!
