Going gothic ??!?!?


I should really get better at posting… i actually have like 3 projects done but just haven’t posted much. I was recently hurt at work during a freight day and have been taken off work for a few weeks to heal. It will be 2 weeks since it happened and i have only now regained use of the fingers on my left hand.

This was a picture take a few days ago.  It looks a lot better today, the bruising seems to travel. my hand is pretty black and blue right now 🙂

Luckily its not broken, But still hurts like hell. The picture doesn’t do the swelling justice.


On to happier topics ….I have a card to share with you. The challenge over at Tiddly ink’s Challenge blog is to attempt something “Gothic” . That is WAYYYYYYY outside my comfort zone.  Here is my final result. I’m not sure I’m in love with it. I been adding and maybe it will grow on me.

I used Copic Markers to color her in. I tried to feather blend the skirt. It got a little spotty in the middle. I was trying to blend with a lighter color. The flower is actually a pink Prima. I Couldn’t find the colors i wanted so i just made my own. I used BVoo and BV08  to get the colors I wanted.

Her hair was my favorite!!! I replaced the C7 that I usually use for black hair and used BV29.  I then used the black spica marker. The glitter is awesome.

Here are the colors that I used:
