Good Morning
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are we all doing?  Well June has flown by
and here we are in JULY.

Welcome to our  third challenge over at

This challenge blog is solely for the more sexier/Darker/ Goth
type of images, so sorry no pretty cute images.

Our theme is always going to be 


so plenty of scope for you all to show us your darker side!!
You have until 3pm on the 30th July NZ Time to get
your entries in

Our sponsor this month is
Kenny K
Prize - 3 digi images

My card has been made using the image Maggie Mayhem
and you can use the link HERE if you would like to
purchase her.


1. Using an 8 x 8 card I matted it with black card.
 Next layer is patterned paper from my stock.

2. Again black card adhered to card and onto this I
matted with backing paper taken from the Cd
Fairy Cobblers by Magik Graphics, I think its
a perfect background for this sexy little number.

3. The image was printed onto super smooth and
coloured with my new Derwent Colour Soft
pencils, first time using then and I must say
I ams quite pleased with result.  She was
then die cut with an oval die and before
removing from the die I inked the edges
using T/H Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
To add a little extra to the image I used
black pen to create the faux stitching.
I then adhered to the card using foam tape.

4. The bike is made up from peel offs and
I decided to put all the bits that are usually
left out back into the bike to create a solid
bike.  The sentiment was computer generated
and die cut and again scattered straw was
used to go over it.

To complete I added my lilac bow and the
skull and crossbones embellishment.

I do hope you will come along an join in, as
all the team are dying to see you Dark'n'Daring

Thanks for calling,
Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
