I still haven't had a chance to go through all my pics from the flight, there are quite a few of them! But I will add some to my blog at some point.
I'm excited about the Walking Dead starting back with a new series tomorrow night, although it'll probably be Saturday before I get to see it. I've only been able to start watching it quite recently, but I decided to buy the box-sets and was hooked in no time! I love having TV shows on while I craft, you don't have to concentrate on them as you would with a film. And then one of my favourite TV shows, Elementary, series 2 starts next week! Happy days! I hope it lives up to the standards of series 1, cos it was excellent! Another favourite of mine is the Almighty Johnstons, it is a masterpiece of a show and I'm so enjoying the current series! My all-time favourite is of course Game of Thrones, but it's not back on til next year - they're still filming it ;)
Enough of my TV habits! We have a mid-way reminder for you at PunkYouGirl!
Our challenge this month has been sponsored by the very fabulous Rick St Dennis
He is offering 2 images of the winners choice!
The challenge, brought to you by our lovely boss Jacki is...
And remember that we are a darker themed challenge blog, so no cutsies here!
The design team were honoured to get a choice of image from our fabby sponsor - it was my first time working with their images but it won't be my last - they're class!
When I first saw the image I picked I knew what I wanted to do with it straight away. Then by the time I received the image I had completely forgotten my great idea and I hadn't a clue what I could do with the image! Thankfully though, I remembered and this is what I did...
I made the moon by cutting a circle out of white card with a Go Kreate x-large die. I randomly stamped Antique Linen, Old Paper and Frayed Burlap distress ink pads onto a non-stick sheet and sprayed some water on it. I dipped my white circle in the watery mix and dried with a heat gun. I repeated until I had achieved the desired effect and then I added a little bit of Champagne Mist all purpose ink from Stampin' Up! to the coloured water and dipped the moon one last time. This left some lovely shimmery-ness on the moon.
I coloured the image with the following copics: 100,C10,9,8,6,5,4,3,2.
I cut the shape of a tree out by hand and attached behind the gravestones.
So please pop over to the PunkYouGirl blog to check out what the rest of the DT have done and have a go at showing us your darker side!
