This week's Macabre Monday challenge is:
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card using at least two different patterned papers. This has GOT to be an easy one, kids!
This week is sponsored by one of our very own resident Macabre Minions, Digital Demoness Susan from Crafty Chaos Designs!!!
Susan has a great assortment of original digital papers and images... AND she'll be handing out some of those bad boys for the winner(s) this week!
I chose to work with Susan's "Simply Steam punk" line of papers.
They are designed to be 6"X6" papers which makes them very easy
to print out and work with. There are also 6 beautifully unique designs in each set
and they are priced very inexpensively.
I wanted to use my latest favorite color, purple, so I used
some distress inks and some SU craft inks to add some purple to
my digital papers. Now they match a bit better and it was quick and
simple to get them that way.
I got these cool frames on clearance at Mike's after Hallowe'en
and framed some of that cool digi paper.
I added some Wild Orchid fleurs to add some interest and
give the frame some dimension.
What can I say about these Steam punk images from
that I haven't already said?
Had to add a compass brad to give some type of metal element
to the card. Oh, and some border sticker from Recollections.
