Full Moon!

Friday, 18 October 2013

Hi everyone, I hope you're all keeping crafty!
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 apologise for the terrible pics, but it was difficult to photograph!  I made a circular easel card.

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.

I stamped some images and a sentiment from the Waltzing Mouse Halloween Party set with black versafine ink.  I also used some black web ribbon, black swarovski's and black roses from my stash.

 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!
