Forever Night's 1st Official Mini Dark Art Monday Challenge!!

Hi everyone.  Well today is our very first challenge over at "Forever Night Challenges".  Forever Night is a challenge blog for all things, Dark, Emo, Steampunk, Scary, and totally different.  So if you have a dark side this is a Challenge Blog for you.

Skull-tastick Challenge #1
~ Create a mini art project with skulls in mind~
You can make any of the following or something never thought of.

  • Tag
  • atc card
  • moo card
  • inchies, twinchies, thrinchies, etc
  • mini card
  • bottle caps
  • paper clips
I am sure you get the idea!

I decided to make a tag to use on a gift bag for one of my friends.  The good thing about this tag or any tag is that they can be used as a bookmark also.  And guess what my friend loves to read, so this will be perfect for her.

The image is by artist Terra Bidlespacher  and is called "Tad Batty" and you can get her at Sweet Pea Stamps on sheet #5 Plate #155, or by herself.
I used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and sprayed the whole tag.  I also used a Spellbinders Pendant die and cut it in half and attached it to the bottom and top of the tag.

I used a wallpaper corner skull art that I found on the internet and printed it and added it to the left side of the tag.  The image was colored with copics.  The sentiment was computer generated.  I added some epoxy skull stickers and dots and also some black tulle and fringe.

So now go and check out the new Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT created and become a follower, as this is a new Challenge blog and we need people to play along with us.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my very first Forever Night's Challenge.

I have enough trouble with vintage let alone dark and scary, but this is stunning. Gorgeous copic skills are almost non exsistent, so I will just enjoy looking at your beautiful work.
