When I first found out about Barb, and her Haunted Design House blog I was a fan instantly! I felt as though I had found a kindred spirit in Barb, and her love of the macabre and Halloween.
I made a promise to myself that I would participate in ALL of the fabulously inspiring challenges that Barb comes up with every Monday, for her "Macabre Monday Challenges".
Well, I haven't played along in a loooong time. Too long actually. I have made projects, but I seem to keep missing the deadline (5 o'clock!!!), or I never quite finish what I was working on.
When I read this week's Macabre Monday challenge, I was instantly inspired and wasted no time getting my s*it together for this one!
I give you, "Gothic Asian Persuasion".
I have had this set for quite a while. I have always wanted to use it, but never had the right papers, or whatever. When I read the challenge I knew exactly how I was going to use these stamps.
For starters, there were a bunch of butterflies flying by the geisha and I turned them all into bats with the help of my Copic multiliner. I also gave her some 'sinister' eyebrows as well.
And I just knew I had to set fire to that pagoda.
(need to work on my flame coloring though)
I had great fun drawing and modifying these images to fit the challenge.
I had so much fun, I actually have 2 entries for this week's challenge, but I'm gonna save the second one for tomorrow.
What a tease.
